3. Potential Second-Round Opportunity?


Having two second-rounders to play with obviously is a major asset in case Roseman wants to move up on Day 1. But they could also come in handy if he wants to rise early on Day 2.

The first half of the second round is always one to watch, as it'll feature several players whom teams had Round 1 grades on. That makes franchises very eager to get someone they value highly at a discount if they're still available.

Unfortunately for the Eagles, both of their second-round picks (No. 50 and 53) are in the back half, so those first-round fallers aren't likely to be there when they're on the clock. In that case, a move up would be required to snag one of the top remaining guys.

If that scenario plays out on Day 2, the Carolina Panthers could possibly lend a hand.

Carolina is a rebuilding team that could use a volume of youth talent instead of one prime pick after posting the worst record in the league in 2023 with the No. 1 selection (Bryce Young) on board. That may leave the Panthers open to moving the latter of their two second-rounders at No. 39 if they can snag more choices in the process.

Here the Eagles come calling, offering No. 50 (400 points), No. 120 (54 points), No. 161 (27 points) and No. 171 (23 points) for No. 39 (510 points). Carolina turns its worst second-rounder into four total choices, giving them ammo to load up on rookies or possibly move up somewhere else in the draft.

Philadelphia, on the flip side, is now in position to choose in the first seven spots of the second round, all but guaranteeing them someone who was worthy of a Day 1 landing spot but simply slipped.

This scenario would also mean the Eagles don't pick until the sixth round after their selection at No. 53 -- since they're giving up their fourth-rounder and don't own a choice in the third or fifth -- but it's worth it for this team to prioritize top-end prospects for a Super Bowl run, instead of settling for developmental guys in the later stages of the draft.
