The Philadelphia Eagles have enjoyed a busy offseason full of moves to better set up this roster for another Super Bowl run in 2024. Now with the NFL draft rapidly approaching, the Eagles can focus on filling the few remaining holes on their depth chart.

Luckily, Philly doesn't have to settle when it comes to the draft. The Eagles boast a number of picks heading into the event, giving them the capital to move up if there's a prospect they have their eye on, especially on Day 1 or 2.

With that in mind, here are a couple of packages Howie Roseman could offer to move up in the 2024 draft.

1. An Aggressive Move to No. 12


Every draft features some surprises, including top guys who fall. This could be due to injury or character concerns, like how Philadelphia landed Jalen Carter at No. 9 in 2023 after he was previously thought of as a contender for the No. 1 selection.

If another top-10 prospect slides in this draft, Philly is in a great position to move up and nab them for less than it'd cost to select that player within the first handful of picks. Should this scenario play out on draft day, the Denver Broncos (and their No. 12 pick) seem like an ideal trade-up partner.

Denver is hitting the full reset button after a disappointing past couple of seasons, as this spring saw the Broncos release both Russell Wilson and Pro Bowl safety Justin Simmons. They also traded away former top pick Jerry Jeudy, meaning three key starters are no longer around.

Considering this team is directionless at the moment without a franchise quarterback, Denver would likely be better served trading down from 12 in order to stockpile more draft picks and inject additional youth into its roster.

The Eagles can certainly help with that goal given they own eight total selections in 2024, including a pair of second-rounders and three sixth-round choices.

Should the Eagles pursue a deal, they could offer something like No. 22 (780 points), No. 50 (400 points) and No. 171 (23 points) for No. 12 (1200 points), which lines up in almost exact point value according to the Jimmy Johnson trade chart.

This is a win for both sides. Philadelphia earns the chance to select a prospect who is a stronger bet to make an immediate impact than waiting until No. 22, like tight end Brock Bowers or one of the leading offensive lineman from this class. Meanwhile, Denver receives two extra picks for a slight move down and gets back into the second round, where the Broncos currently don't own a selection.
