Round 2, Pick 2: Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

This could be an interesting offseason for the Eagles. Not only does Haason Reddick want to play elsewhere but James Bradberry could find himself being let goafter struggling mightily in 2023. While those moves could happen, it’s also worth monitoring A.J. Brown.

A former second-round pick for the Tennessee Titans, Brown was traded to Philly during the 2022 NFL Draft. The Eagles gave up a first-round pick to land Brown, then signed him to a massive extension.

He rewarded them with a dominant campaign and was off to an even hotter start in 2023. But then his numbers declined and before long, he was showing visible signs of frustration — leading up to him deleting any mention of the team from all of his social media accounts. Things have quieted down but the Eagles would be smart to start developing more wideouts behind Brown.

That’s why their second pick in Round 2 lands them Ja’Lynn Polk from Washington. Polk is a reliable target who hardly drops passes. He can win at the catch point and is able to rack up the yards after the catch, making him an ideal fit with Jalen Hurts.

Even if Brown stays, they need more youth and upside at the position. Polk offers that and could develop into quite the weapon in this offense.
