Top 2023 NFL Draft prospects at Eagles’ most-needed positions

The rich are getting richer, and even with a 38-35 loss to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII, things look promising for the Eagles as the 2023 NFL offseason begins.

Thanks to the magic of Howie Roseman’s draft night, the Eagles traded the No. 16 overall pick, No. 19 overall pick, and a 2022 sixth-round pick to the New Orleans Saints for the No. 18th pick, a 2022 third-round pick, a 2022 seventh-round pick, a 2023 first-round pick, and a 2024 second-round pick.

Philadelphia has four key contributors entering NFL free agency, with only Jordan Davis, Milton Williams and Marlon Tuipulotu on the 53-man roster.

Carter is a rare athlete and game destroyer who might be a better career prospect than his former Georgia teammate Jordan Davis. Carter has that Warren Sapp-esque combination of an explosive first pass, quickness and strong hands, which allows him to flourish as a run blocker/pass rusher.
