ThePhiladelphia Eaglesare gearing up for the NFL Draft, and their first pick will be at No. 10 thanks to a trade they made with the New Orleans Saints last year.

In addition, they have just received another pick at No. 66.

That additional pick comes as the Eagles settled a tampering investigation involving the Arizona Cardinals and their hire of new head coach Jonathan Gannon, who was Philly s defensive coordinator the last two seasons.

The Eagles, of course, made it all the way to the Super Bowl last season after posting a 13-4 record in the regular season, only to blow a 10-point halftime lead and lose in the final seconds to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

They lost a few key players this offseason, including Pro Bowl running back Miles Sanders and defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, and they re likely hoping to find replacements for them in the draft.

One possibility that has been discussed for the Eagles at No. 10 is Bijan Robinson, the star running back for the University of Texas.

Robinson put up 1,580 rushing yards and 20 total touchdowns in 2022 for the Longhorns, and many feel he has superstar written all over him.

Philly quarterback Jalen Hurts just received a hefty contract extension, and at age 24, he should still have some room for improvement, even after posting 3,701 passing yards, 22 passing touchdowns and a 66.5 percent pass completion rate.

The future overall is looking bright for the Eagles, even if they have a few small holes to fill throughout their roster.
