There were plenty of predictions that the Eagles would take a wide receiver in the first round of this year’s draft, but there wasn’t much consensus about the identity of that receiver due to the depth of this year’s group.

Some thought the Eagles would trade up to make their pick, but General Manager Howie Roseman said in a conference call that the price for a move up the board was too high for their taste. When it came time to make a selection at No. 21, they had a choice of players that included Justin Jefferson and Brandon Aiyuk, but the Eagles opted to take Jalen Reagor.
