NFC East Notes: Eagles, Giants, Redskins



  • Jimmy Kempski of believes the Eagles will be looking to come away from round one with an impact player, as opposed to trading back for more selections like they did last year. 
  • Kempski’s sense is that Philadelphia may want to move up the board, possibly in the teens. 
  • As of now, the Eagles are projected to have nine draft picks to work with in 2019 and should be in line for more compensatory picks in 2020 after some free agents depart. 


  • According to Jordan Raanan, there’s a “strong belief” the Giants will address the quarterback position early in this year’s draft. 
  • Should the Giants fall in love with Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins, Raanan says New York will need to trade up from No. 6 overall to get him. 
  • Last year, the Jets traded up to No. 3 from No. 6 and parted with three second-round picks in the process. 
  • Before that, the Redskins gave up two future first-round picks and a second to trade up for Robert Griffin III


  • JP Finlay of NBC Washington mentions that even if Redskins QB Alex Smith can’t play in 2019, he could still be a valuable member in team meetings. 
  • Smith has served as a mentor for quarterbacks in the past and could work with new QBs coach Tim Rattay to get their quarterbacks ready to play.

And they were all basically anointed CAN’T MISS prospects as QBs at the pro level by most ANALysts. Well! Let’s see how they fared. Smith is out of the NFL, Pryor became a receiver and couldn’t last with… Read more »
