NFL Draft 2021: How many quarterbacks should the Eagles take in order to set themselves up for the future?
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he never wants to see Carson Wentz take any more hits than he already has.
“I’d love to avoid the quarterback situation,” he said earlier this month.
Still, the next crop of quarterbacks in the NFL could provide an opportunity for the Eagles to add another quarterback of the future, and allow Wentz to be on the field more without having to fear a serious injury.
Pederson expects them to become, too.
“There’s going to be a great quarterback, there’s going to be a handful,” Pederson said, noting the presence of Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, and Lamar Jackson. “These guys are very talented.”
Who are the NFL’s draft ‘sleeper’ prospects for 2020? Here’s the scouting report.
ESPN’s Todd McShay has given Wentz’s accuracy a 40 percent grade, which is by far the lowest of any NFL quarterback. But Pederson’s praise of Wentz as an athlete, as well as what should be the Eagles quarterback’s ability to read defenses, makes him feel the Eagles will find a quarterback in this year’s draft class who can help the team move forward.
“The quarterback position has always been a premium position in this league,” Pederson said. “This guy can make all the throws, is a very talented athlete, and his competitive nature, his arm talent, his instincts, all of those things are going to make him a franchise quarterback in this league.
“We’re confident that with the resources that we have here in this building, the staff we have here in the building, that we’re going to do everything in our power to continue to provide Carson with a strong plan of being able to get him out on the football field, especially from an extended playing time standpoint.”
The Eagles also have their own first-round pick. If they move it to No. 32 or higher in a trade with another team, they could be in position to select one of the top quarterbacks available. They could also draft one with their second-round pick, No. 43.
Some mock drafts project the Eagles taking one of these quarterbacks if the likes of Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph and Luke Falk or Virginia Tech’s Ryan Willis are available in the second round. Other recent mock drafts have the Eagles selecting a cornerback or running back in the first round.
Will NFL schedule continue to be a work in progress?
Wentz hasn’t said he plans to return in 2019, or has said he’ll return. But he has said he won’t play elsewhere.
Whether he returns or not, the Eagles will need to select a quarterback to be on the roster in the next few years.

So who could they pick?
Here’s how the NFL draft will play out, according to McShay, and an argument for why the Eagles might go that route in the first round.
- Cleveland Browns
Will end up taking the top QB on their draft board, whoever that is.
- New York Giants
Trading down with the Giants, who want to draft a QB to replace Eli Manning, would give the Eagles the No. 2 pick, and would allow them to land a QB in the first round, no matter what.
- New York Jets
The Jets have had an interest in Mayfield and Rosen, but they’re not interested in trading down, and most mock drafts have them drafting USC’s Sam Darnold with the third pick. If the Browns take the quarterback at No. 1, the Jets could slide back five picks and take their guy.
- Cleveland Browns (via Houston Texans)
If the Browns go quarterback with the first pick, and the Giants don’t move up, the Browns will need to draft a QB. There will be plenty of available options for them on draft day, including Mayfield.
- Buffalo Bills
GM Brandon Beane wants his QB to be a big guy, but if he can’t find one in free agency, there will be plenty of options in the draft, including Mayfield and Darnold, who the Bills worked out at the Senior Bowl.
- Denver Broncos
If the Browns take Mayfield or Darnold with the first pick, the Broncos can grab Wyoming’s Josh Allen with the No. 5 pick.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs have done their homework on Darnold, who visited their facility in the offseason. They have an interest in Darnold.
- Chicago Bears
The Bears have had an interest in Mayfield. If he’s still on the board at No. 8, they could swoop in and draft him.
