A day after the Carolina Panthers traded for quarterback Sam Darnold, the modifying franchise signed veteran cornerback A.J. Bouye to a deal.
The two moves probably eliminated the Panthers from picking a quarterback or cornerback at No. 8 overall, likely improving Philadelphia’s odds of getting either Jaycee Horn or Patrick Surtain.
The four quarterbacks are relied upon to be Trevor Lawrence (Jaguars), Zach Wilson (Jets), Justin Fields or Mack Jones (49ers), and Trey Lance.
In the event that Mack Jones can beat down the party, that will make five.
The Bengals will take Ja’Marr Chase or Penei Sewell, while Atlanta could in any case go quarterback or Kyle Pitts relying upon what San Francisco does, conceivably eliminating with seven players off the board.
That leaves Miami, Detroit, Dallas, and the Giants probably all going skill positions also, except if the Cowboys go edger usher or something different.
Philadelphia is presently in a battle to get the best players from a group that incorporates Surtain II or Horn.
