Round 2, Pick 53: Roman Wilson, WR, Michigan

Near the end of the season, there were a lot of concerns surrounding A.J. Brown. The Eagles’ top wideout was unstoppable early in the year but then went on a long drought. By the time the playoffs rolled around, he found himself out with a knee injury and caused a stir when the team’s name was scrubbed from his social media.

In addition to that bit of drama, Brown was displaying some questionable body language and seemed to be tired of their offensive scheme. There were questions initially about his place on the team in 2024 but that's died out. Perhaps the change to Kellen Moore as the new offensive coordinator will be enough to make him happy.

But that still won't be enough to fix the passing game.

Outside of Brown and DeVonta Smith, the Eagles struggled to get help at receiver. That's why they add Roman Wilson from Michigan with their second pick in this round.

An excellent option in the slot, Wilson can really do damage when opposing defenses focus on the ground attack — which will happen often in Philly. He showed off 4.39 speed at the Combine and us dangerous with the ball in his hands. In a class with some very talented wideouts, Wilson could wind up as one of the most productive players at the next level.
