2. The Philadelphia Eagles trade Jalen Reagor and pick 51 to the Seattle Seahawks for pick 41.

This is a bit more of an “out of the box” idea, but one that could prove to be beneficial for all parties involved.

The Seattle Seahawks are a rebuilding team looking to load up on talent heading into the 2022 NFL season. They’re rolling into the draft with Drew Lock “locked-in” as their quarterback and have eight picks to play with in the 2022 NFL Draft, including pick number nine in the first round and two picks right in a row, 40 and 41, in the second round. If Pete Carroll’s squad is one of the teams that like Reagor, maybe general manager John Schneider can exchange one of those picks, presumably 41 for the TCU receiver’s services and the 51st overall pick in a move reminiscent of the Timmy Jernigan deal from 2017.

According to the draft value chart, moving from 41 to 51 is worth 100 points or the 100th overall pick. Is that a bit rich for Reagor’s services? Maybe a little, but Roseman could sweeten the deal with a later-round pick such as the fifth-rounder procured from the Arizona Cardinals in the Zach Ertz trade if need be.

Would moving off of Reagor for a pick swap feel like a loss? Most likely, yes, but if such a swap could secure the Eagles a player they really like, maybe a wide receiver like North Dakota State’s Christian Watson, then it would be a move worth making.
