If the Philadelphia Eagles are thinking about drafting a quarterback in round two or three of the NFL draft, it might behoove them to reconsider that idea.
The Eagles are showing a lot of interest in this year’s QB class prospects. They’ve already been linked to several players such as Kirk Cousins, Ryan Tannehill, Ryan Lindley and Russell Wilson.
They were even rumored to be interested in trading up to the No. 2 overall pick in order to snare Robert Griffin III.

When the Eagles show a lot of interest in players of a certain position leading up to the draft, it means there is a good chance they are looking at drafting a player at that position. For example, prior to the draft last year the position the Eagles were linked to the most was linebacker (pre-draft visits, private workouts, general interest, etc).
They ended up drafting three of them (Casey Matthews, Brian Rolle and Greg Lloyd).
