15. Philadelphia Eagles (via Miami Dolphins): Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia
The Philadelphia Eagles end up with two picks in a row as they own the Miami Dolphins selection at No. 15 — thanks to their draft trade in 2021 — and the Indianapolis Colts pick at No. 16 — which came courtesy of the Carson Wentz trade.
What’s most shocking is how both Miami and Indy missed the playoffs whereas the Eagles made it. That wasn’t expected as they seemed to have the most ground to cover entering the year but they made huge strides and now get some solid picks.
At No. 15, they grab Georgia linebakcer Nakobe Dean who was instrumental in the Bulldogs championship run. He’s a playmaker who can change the momentum of the game in a heartbeat and should help transform that defense.
16. Philadelphia Eagles (via Indianapolis Colts): Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas
With their pick from the Colts, the Eagles now select Treylon Burks from Arkansas. The Razorbacks wideout is a huge target at 6-foot-3 and 230-pounds, which would give Philadelphia a big-bodied option to play opposite DeVonta Smith.
It might seem like a stretch to take a wideout in the first round for the third season in a row but it’s time to admit Jalen Reagor was a bad pick and move on. Burks helps them do exactly that.
