Philadelphia Eagles uses it’s first of three first rounders on Ohio State WR Garrett Wilson at 16
With the Philadelphia Eagles moving out of the 15th overall pick and into the 18th overall pick their first pick will now be at 16. This is the first of three picks for the Eagles in the first round.
After making the playoffs in 2021, the team has their first-round pick, the Miami Dolphins first-rounder, and the Indianapolis Colts first round pick. They’ll have to make some roster moves if they want to make it out of the Wild Card round in 2022.
With their first pick in 2021, they addressed their biggest need by drafting the 2020 Heisman trophy winner and Alabama Crimson Tide wideout DeVonta Smith. Now in 2022, they’ll benefit from adding to their wideout group by adding Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson. It would make it the third year in a row that they’ll select a wideout in the first round.
Wilson was the top receiver for C.J. Stroud and the Buckeyes in 2021 and it’s no surprise that he’s one of the first receivers off the board. He’s a dynamic playmaker that would add to an offense that already houses Smith, Dallas Godert, Myles Sanders, and Boston Scott.
Wilson would be a massive addition to helping Jalen Hurts continue to progress.
