Are the Eagles Seriously Considering Going Quarterback With the 6th Pick?

Everyone who has ever analyzed an NFL game has put out a version of their Mock Draft in the past week. So, it gives us Eagles fans a lot to delve into with the 6th overall pick. One mock draft from PFF had the Eagles taking Ohio State quarterback, Justin Fields. I laughed it off! The Eagles have too many cooks in the kitchen as it is in terms of the quarterback room. Adding one more? Blasphemy. But in the words of the great Lee Corso, not so fast my friend:


It wouldn’t be a disaster to draft a quarterback if the Eagles front office truly believed in one of the prospects available. But given the circumstances, it would be a perceived admission of failure on the Jalen Hurts pick.

In 2019, they invested in Carson Wentz to the tune of $100+ million. In 2020, they used their second round pick on Jalen Hurts, opting for QB instead of filling holes on the roster. It’s hard to trust this front office if they fall in love with another quarterback in 2021. They are the friend who swears, “this time it’ll be different” before plunging into yet another toxic relationship.


Say Justin Fields, Zach Wilson, or even ironically, North Dakota State QB Trey Lance are selected by the Eagles. They will be left facing similar dilemmas to the quarterbacks the preceded them. A offense barren of talent and an overall aging roster with not enough cap space to fix it. The next unfortunate product of a broken system.
