Why the Eagles should consider trading up for Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb

By the time they reached the playoffs last season, the Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver corp was a new grade of thin. Alshon Jeffery (foot), DeSean Jackson (core muscle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) were all injured, leaving Greg Ward Jr. and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside as the top two guys.

The presence of Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert at tight end is helpful, and Jackson is still a capable deep threat assuming he’s healthy. But trade rumors has surfaced around Jeffery, and Agholor is all but surely gone as he hits free agency. Philadelphia should be looking hard at wide receivers in free agency.

Luckily for the Eagles, and teams like them with a significant need at the position, the wide receiver class for the 2020 NFL Draft is talented and deep. That was on full display this week at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, where multiple guys had good showings in the 40-yard dash and during on-field drills.

The Eagles are in a good position to take a good, plug-and-play wide receiver, the proverbial best available, with the 21st overall pick. But here’s why the should consider trading up, with Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb as the No. 1 target.
