Eagles Land High Draft Pick

Before the 2016 regular season began, the Philadelphia Eagles traded quarterback Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings who were desperate to find a replacement for Teddy Bridgewater.

Based on how the Vikings season turned out, the Eagles were able to cash in and receive the 14th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Eagles traded up and drafted their franchise quarterback in Carson Wentz, but in the process they lost first round picks. The trade gave the Eagles an incredible return on Bradford giving him a value of what he was originally worth back when Bradford was drafted in the 1st round in 2010.

Given that the Eagles would not have had any first round draft pick and would still have had Bradford as their quarterback, fans will be grateful that the Vikings agreed to give them their first round pick as well as get rid of a quarterback who has a large cap hit.
