Grading Eagles 2021 Draft Haul

2021 Class

The Eagles once again completed a draft in which they made more picks than any single team starts with. In 2021, they made nine selections even after moving up in the first round and trading into the 2022 draft.

Opinions on their draft actually seem very positive from a national outlook, though many fans in Philadelphia are not happy.

With that in mind, a few of our writers decided to put together their grades.

The Eagles secured yet another loss on prime time this week and fell to 2-4 on the season. This put them in a situation that would seem to force their focus to shift heavily to the future of the franchise.

On Thursday, news broke that teams were calling on Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert looking to see if they might be available in trades.

Ertz found himself on the top of a list of players that the team was looking to move in return for draft compensation and became the first major trade during the 2021 season.

Postgame Report: Eagles Late Rally Falls Short Against Buccaneers

The Eagles entered the half down big against the reigning Super Bowl Champions.

The Eagles showed some fight late, but down 21 and with continued stalls on offense, the hole they dug garnering a single score and countless three and outs in the first half proved too much.

Had Sirianni and Hurts managed to put literally any single drive beyond the first one in the first half, this would have been a real ball game. Instead, the pair continued to show extended stretches of total incompetence that doomed the team against a superior team they otherwise had a chance to beat.

Unfortunately, it looks like this is a trend fans should expect for the rest of this season with only a few wins making their way in when the team decides to put together a full-game effort.

Lincoln Financial Field will host the reigning Super Bowl Champions as they take on the Eagles this Tuesday.

Not appearing on the report this week is tight end Dallas Goedert, who is likely to be a major loss for the Eagles.

Goedert is vaccinated, but landed on the COVID list Tuesday. To get out of the protocol, he'd need two negative tests 24 hours apart, which makes his only chance of playing if they got a negative test today and are able to do so again in time before the rosters are set tomorrow.

The Eagles entered the half after another putrid offensive showing.

The only plays called in the first half seemed to be screens with the occasional play resulting in Hurts rolling to the right to extend the play for a throw out of bounds.

Following the half, brief deviations from that offensive plan allowed the offense to see some success while the defense buckled down and allowed just three points to clinch the win.

That was a frustrating, tough loss.

There isn't much of another way to describe it for Penn State fans. After leading nearly the entire game, the win was just not in the cards for Penn State Saturday afternoon.

For this season, there remains a lot in the balance, but the team has a foundation for the future in the works.

The Eagles will once again be short staffed along the offensive line this week.

Not appearing on the report this week is guard Sua Opeta, who is on the COVID list. The team could get him back depending on how the protocols go for him.

The Panthers made a huge move this week to acquire Stephon Gilmore, but because he was ultimately traded instead of cut, he remains on the PUP list and is ineligible to suit up against the Eagles.

On Tuesday night, when the Eagles officially moved Isaac Seumalo and K'Von Wallace to IR, they also released veteran TE Richard Rodgers from the practice squad and activated the practice windows for Jack Driscoll and Josiah Scott, both of whom could potentially fill the same role as the two players placed on IR.

With Ertz no longer on the COVID list, Richard Rodgers as a fourth option was no longer needed and the team could look to bring in another options.

On Wednesday afternoon, Cameron Malveaux was signed to fill that spot on the practice squad, per his agent.
