Eagles Must Feel Good About Their Backup Inside Linebackers

The NFL Draft has come and gone and if there was one surprise, it was that the Eagles didn’t select an Inside Linebacker to potentially be DeMeco Ryans’ heir apparent. Hell, they didn’t even sign a rookie free agent at that position. That speaks volumes about how they must feel about Najee Goode, Jake Knott, Jason Phillips and Emmanuel Acho.

I wanted this piece to be a history of the best tradebacks in Eagles draft lore.
