Eagles move to the draft spot behind the 49ers

Mar 9, 2016 at 9:18 AM--


According to a report by Albert Breer of NFL Network, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded away LB Kiko Alonso, CB Byron Maxwell, and their 13th overall selection in next month's NFL Draft to the Miami Dolphins for their pick. Who is this San Francisco 49ers related? That pick happens to be the eighth overall selection, just one spot behind San Francisco.


If the 49ers have a desire to trade down in the first round, the team now has to figure out how the Eagles, and not the Dolphins, are going to pick and determine which teams may want to jump ahead of Philadelphia. Also interesting is that Philadelphia happens to be the former home of new 49ers head coach Chip Kelly, who may have a little insight into the thinking of his former team.

The San Francisco 49ers' 2020 NFL season was arguably the most disappointing season over the last decade purely due to the high expectations the team had set for itself by making the Super Bowl the season prior. The underwhelming season was primarily plagued with injuries in addition to holes on the roster that were neglected in the 2020 offseason. However, the Niners started the 2021 offseason with an underrated free agency period during which they were able to retain most of their free agents, including Trent Williams, Jason Verrett, Kyle Juscyk, Jaquiski Tartt, and more while bringing in key role players in Alex Mack and Samson Ebukam.

Rounds 4-7 of the draft are crucial for teams to take players who have outstanding potential but still have notable flaws or injury concerns. Let's jump into the second half of the draft and evaluate just how
