Here are the next five questions the Eagles should answer as they prepare for the draft, per the NFL’s draft countdown clock.
Will the Eagles draft a quarterback?
No, not yet.
They’ve had to deal with injuries and uncertainty at quarterback for several weeks now.
They have the first overall pick in the draft and have a choice of quarterback in their top five.
And while Chip Kelly and his staff are focused on building the right team, they also have a number of players they need to add to the roster.
There are three QBs they have been interested in, according to ESPN’s Todd McShay: Johnny Manziel, Ryan Nassib, and Jake Locker.
Manziel, who has a solid arm and can be an excellent quarterback, is the most likely candidate to go in the first round.
He has a good arm, but the Eagles will have to wait for the NFL Draft to make a decision.
Manziel’s stock is also rising.
He’s ranked as the No. 5 prospect in the 2018 class by Scout.com and the No 4 quarterback in the 2019 class by 247Sports.
There’s no doubt that he has the ability to develop into an NFL quarterback.
He also has a very good arm and could be an effective backup to Wentz.
But he will need to improve his arm strength and accuracy to compete with Wentz, especially as a rookie.
The Eagles have a lot of questions about his arm.
He needs to make improvements in the accuracy of his passes.
He’ll need to be more consistent in his reads.
He might need to work on his decision-making, which could hurt his chances of reaching the top of the draft.
Will they add another QB?
There are a number QBs on the board.
They also have to find a replacement for Wentz and Locker, who are both still rehabbing from injuries.
They could be interested in either of those two.
One possibility would be to get a QB in the second round, which would give them a second quarterback, and that would help with the depth of the roster and the long-term outlook of the team.
Another possibility is to trade down and get a quarterback in round two.
The draft could also be a good time for teams to move up in the rankings if they want to add another quarterback.
What happens if the Eagles don’t get the No, No. 2 pick?
The draft is only a few days away, and there’s plenty of time for the Eagles to make up their mind.
They can either go in a different direction, or they can make a change.
In the end, it’s a business.
If they go with Wentak or Locker in the top two, they have a good chance of drafting someone in the third or fourth round.
If not, they could draft a QB, who could be a backup or third string quarterback.
If it’s Wentak, the Eagles have their top target at quarterback.
But if they go for Locker or Manziel, they’ll be forced to move down to pick Manziel or Wentak.
It would make sense for the team to go with Manziel, since he has a similar arm to Wentak’s and can help out with the passing game.
If the team goes with Wentzik, they may have to move back up a couple spots to get him.
But the team needs to see how his arm develops and whether he can be a starter.
How will the Eagles deal with the injury bug?
The Eagles are still in the midst of rehabbing players.
They had to make several changes to their roster because of injuries to players.
Wentz is out indefinitely and Manziel is also dealing with a groin injury.
That means they’ll have to add some depth at quarterback in order to help with their injury situation.
The team has been trying to find ways to replace Wentz for the past few weeks, and they have some interesting options.
They may use the first pick on an offensive lineman.
But they’re also going to be using the fourth overall pick on a quarterback.
There is some question whether the team will draft a passer in the fourth round at this point.
They would need to make that decision.
There also is a chance the team could use the fourth pick on someone else.
They need to decide if they’re going to draft Wentz or Manziel.
Can the Eagles get a player with Wentzonie’s pedigree?
There’s been talk of an offensive line, and the Eagles could use a quarterback to go along with Wenttz and Manziel.
The most intriguing prospect is Louisville offensive lineman Travis Frederick, who had a breakout season for the Cardinals last season and is ranked as one of the top 10 linemen in the class by Pro Football Focus.
Frederick is a power-based lineman who can be used on the edge, and he has good size and length.
He could provide a valuable backup to either Wentz in the event Wentz decides to take the Eagles’ job.
