3. Ja'Lynn Polk, WR

The Eagles have two dynamic playmakers at wide receiver and they are both locked in for the long haul. Recently, they inked DeVonta Smith to a three-year, $75 million deal with $51 million guaranteed.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia signed A.J. Brown to a four-year, $100 million deal in 2022. Now both playmakers are signed through 2026. That is great news for the Eagles as the NFL is more pass-heavy than ever before.

The Eagles love running the ball and physically wearing down their opponents but having three capable WRs is a must.

They've had some trouble recently finding that WR3. This offseason they signed Parris Campbell and DeVante Parker to one-year deals to fill in that role but GM Howie Roseman should look to bring in another playmaker in the NFL Draft.

Washington's Ja'Lynn Polk would be a great addition to the Eagles offense. Polk can line up both inside and outside while owning great body control. The Texas native doesn't have outstanding speed but he thrives when the ball is in the air. Polk has strong hands at the catch point and uses his size to box out defenders.

Last season, Polk blew up for the Huskies, snagging 69 receptions for 1,159 yards, and nine touchdowns.

Adding another dynamic weapon to an already-loaded offense would have Jalen Hurts smiling. The Eagles have two picks in the second round (No. 50 & No. 53) and could easily use one to bring in Polk. I know it's not a need but injuries always happen in the NFL. Having someone who could step up and deliver is how the best teams weather the storm of a long NFL season.
