Could the Eagles be trading partners?

By Kip Earlywine
According to Peter King (and also Sal Paolantonio on ESPN), the Eagles are intent on trading up into the first half of the 1st round for either Eric Berry or Earl Thomas. This is potentially fantastic news for the Seahawks, who are known to be keen on trading down with one of their 1st rounders. Eric Berry has a good chance of being there at #6 to entice a trade (unless Kansas City beats them to it), and Earl Thomas has a very good chance of being there at #14. The Eagles have tons of draft ammunition, including two 2nd round picks, the #37 (McNabb trade) and the #56.

I'm starting to feel excited for the draft. This should be an interesting situation to watch. Stay tuned.

Like I said in a previous post, I think KC will beat Seattle to the punch and trade the #5 to the Eagles if they really are gonna move up that far. KC would take the same package that Seattle would IMO. The good from this would be that if Seattle wants to take a LT, it would move a better one down the board, instead of KC taking that LT.

Now if Earl Thomas is there at 14 and thats who the Eagles want, then maybe you could get that 1st and 2nd rounders for the #14.

If the Hawks move down from #6, its gonna have to be trading with a team that wants Claussen and fears that Cleveland will take him, perhaps Buffalo. Maybe the Giants will want to make a move for Morgan too. IT is starting to get exciting and the anticipation is building. Cn't wait for your guy's final mock drafts.

Yeah, I agree about KC. KC and Jacksonville will be the two teams that could impact the Seahawks options the most.

Just looking at the standard draft pick value chart, our #6 is worth 1600, the eagles have #24 (740) #37 (530) and #56 (340)...they add up to 1610...personally, I would be falling all over myself to give the eagles our #6 and a 6th or 7th rounder for their #27, 37 and 56...and if we could trade #14 back for a later 1st and a second, we'd end up with 2 first rounders, and four (!) second rounders...possibilities, possibilities...(drool)
