As is often the case, the Philadelphia Eagles crushed it in the NFL Draft. Howie Roseman continues to find ways to move all over the draft board and landed two starting cornerbacks in Quinyon Mitchell from Toledo and Cooper DeJean from Iowa with their first two selections.

From there, he got to work adding more talent, including Will Shipley from Clemson, who could be their new RB2. They also brought in the son of a former Philly Pro Bowler, Jeremiah Trotter, Jr. to compete at linebacker.

While they're likely happy with the talent they have, there's still time to make a few moves before camp. If they decide to do so, here are three veteran free agents they can target.

The Eagles recently signed former first-round pick Mekhi Becton but plan on giving the 6-foot-7, 364-pounder some reps at guard. Becton struggled as a left tackle for the New York Jets, which is why they're considering the move, and it would make him one of the largest at the position.

With Jason Kelce retiring this offseason, Philadelphia is looking to make moves on the offensive line as Cam Jurgens slides to center, leaving his old spot at right guard up for grabs. They have faith in Jurgens but there's still a lot to be answered at guard, where Tyler Steen, Matt Hennessy, and possibly Becton will battle it out.

If they're not sold on any of them, they could look to add someone with plenty of experience such as Dalton Risner. A second-round pick in 2019, Risner has started 73 games in five seasons at guard. He's not someone who has threatened to make the Pro Bowl but he's a serviceable starter who could be a stop-gap solution — should the other options fail to impress.
