2021 Draft: Howie Roseman figures the Eagles can't do much at #6 to grab another pro prospect QB, so they're gonna make a deal with Miami and trade back to #12 - still get an impact player - and also get #123 in return for Philly's #6 and #156...AND Miami's #1 in the 2022 draft.
So the Eagles are gonna fly with Jalen Hurts, and Jalen knows he's their guy and he's gonna be motivated to produce in 2021.
2020 Draft: Brian Gutekunst and The Pack are sitting at #30 and have their Draft Day board all nice and scribbled with game changers for their team. Gutekunst explained (after the draft) what he was thinking when they swapped spits with Houston and moved up to #26 from #30: He said "like in every year" they weren't looking for a QB, but when the players started getting picked and it was getting down to crunch time, they didn't see anybody else on their board and so they grabbed Jordan Love, the Mountain West honorable mention QB. LMAO...that sounds like they were laser-focused on a QB.
Just for context, they took a BC running back in R2 and a CINN tight end in R3.
So in Round 1 CLYDE was still available at #26, and so was Michael Pittman, Chase Claypool, and Jonathan Taylor.
Gutekunst became Dir of College Scouting in 2012 and Dir of Player Personnel in 2016 after being hired as a scout a couple years earlier. The Pack last were in a SUPE in 2010 season/2011 beating the Steelers. The team with arguably the WORST management in the NFL - Houston - came calling in 2018 looking for a GM, and before Brian could head to the land of the bluebonnets for a parlay the Pack offered/promoted him to the GM spot. Can you say "Peter Principle"? So good for The Pack...the executive committee is still happy (gotta assume) and the free brats and beer on game day makes it all worth their efforts.
Decision of the referee is final: The Pack got a GENERATIONAL TALENT and rode that sucker for all he was worth, and he'll be heading out to stud in a year or two in Cali, but the Eagles have the better management team.
