The Philadelphia Eagles regressed heavily last year, and there are many reasons that factored into that regression. Carson Wentz played the worst football of his career, the offensive line suffered heavy injuries, the wide receivers underperformed, and the defense was incredibly underwhelming. In a weak division, the Eagles were the weakest of the bunch. The Eagles finished last in the NFC East, with a record of 4-11-1. However, as they are playing in a weak division, it might not take them too much to get back to competing in it once again.
The Eagles made a big move this offseason by firing Doug Pederson and hiring the former Colts offensive coordinator, Nick Sirianni. With a new coaching staff, a new quarterback, and a new direction, the Eagles will hope to bounce back after a good draft.
Where will Eagles turn their focus to in 2021 NFL Draft?
After trading back to pick twelve overall, the Eagles have eleven picks in the 2021 NFL Draft. What that means is that they have plenty of draft capital to either load up with eleven players and hope they hit on most of them, or they can package some of the picks together and gain more top-100 picks to have a better chance of hitting on a pick.
Howie Roseman does not have the best hit rate in recent years, so this might be a big year for him. This is a major year for the Eagles. After their worst season in recent memory, the Eagles need a big draft to get back on track and be able to compete against the Washington Football Team, Dallas Cowboys, and New York Giants.
