Are the Eagles contending for the NFC East after the draft? | #FlyEaglesFly

The Philadelphia Eagles had an excellent 2022 draft by every means. Even though they were always expected to be major players considering the initial three first-round picks they were supposed to have, the way that Philadelphia ended the recruitment brings lots of hope for the fans.

On the first night, Jordan Davis was an exciting pick to bolster the defensive line. The Georgia product will spend most of the 2022 season on the sidelines learning from stars such as Fletcher Cox and Malik Jackson, but his massive frame and quality on the run defense will see him shining sooner than later. Later that day, the Eagles struck a massive deal with the Tennessee Titans to acquire wide receiver A.J. Brown on a deal that included the 18th pick; Brown will instantly be the number one receiver for Jalen Hurts, whom he holds a great friendship with.

The second day was also really good. Cam Jurgens won't see the field in his first year, but who's better to teach an athletic-but-small center to play than Jason Kelce? And the Eagles even found Nakobe Dean, one of the draft's biggest steals, in the third round. Linebacker was a huge need for the team and Philadelphia acquired one of the best players of the class for a small price.

Talent was added, needs were addressed and superstars were acquired. Any Eagles fan can be happy with how the 2022 NFL draft played out. Of course, none of it matters if it doesn't translate to the field, but the initial prospects are awesome.
