Eagles Confirm They Are Drafting The Best Player Available

Updated: February 19, 2013

eaglesEagles GM Howie Roseman recently sat down with CSN Philly to discuss the Eagles upcoming draft picks. The Eagles hold a key selection in the 2013 NFL Draft. With the fourth selection, the Eagles will have the ability to possibly choose between the best player or fill a perceived need immediately.

Could the Eagles reach slightly in the draft and draw for need? According to Roseman that is precisely what Philadelphia won’t be doing this spring.

Roseman confirmed that the Eagles have already set their draft board and that the Senior Bowl nor the NFL combine will be changing his mind:

“You get your board right, you don’t pick for need. If you do that, then you have the opportunity to come away with a heck of a draft. We’re excited about the class we had last year. We think we build on that, add a couple more and we can get a core group of players that are Philadelphia Eagles that can be here for a long time.”
