Philadelphia Eagles identify top targets at this position in the 2024 NFL Draft.

According to reports, the Philadelphia Eagles are identifying top targets at this position in the 2024 NFL Draft.

One of the top talent scouts in the National Football League, Howie Roseman is the general manager of the Philadelphia Eagles. His preferences are well recognized. There seems to be growing optimism about what Philadelphia will do with its first-round pick as the 2024 NFL Draft draws closer.
There were persistent NFL Draft speculations a year ago linking defensive tackle Jalen Carter to Philadelphia. Another clear indication of the team’s plans came from Roseman’s prioritization of linemen in the first round. The team announced Carter and edge rusher Nolan Smith after the first round concluded in 2023.

In 2024, cornerback is thought to be one of the Eagles’ most pressing draft needs. There is a strong class at the position, with several starting-caliber players anticipated to be available for Philadelphia to select. But Roseman’s inclinations appear to be pointing in a particular way once more.

Scouts from all across the league, according to ESPN’s Matt Miller, think Roseman would try to lock up the offensive line for the Eagles early in the 2024 NFL Draft—possibly in the first round.

In 2024, who will the Eagles draft? Identifying prospects and possible strategy Miller particularly names Tyler Guyton, an offensive tackle for the Oklahoma Sooners, as a possible Philadelphia candidate. Although he isn’t among the 2024 NFL Draft’s most pro-ready linemen, he still has a lot of talent and has practiced with Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson.
“Pre-draft workouts with current Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson were attended by Tyler Guyton. Prior to Jason Kelce’s retirement, the Eagles began making plans for the center position. By selecting Guyton, who made just 14 starts in college, they would give him the opportunity to grow under head coach Steve Johnson and renowned offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland.

Guyton is a great option to develop after Johnson in 2024 and will probably be available with the 22nd overall choice. Still, he is a project that will require a coaching staff to work on it for a considerable amount of time before he is ready, which might restrict the Eagles’ options in 2024.
Troy Fautanu of the Washington Huskies and Graham Barton of the Duke Blue Devils, who plays offensive line, are thus possible 2024 draft picks for the Eagles. Philadelphia possesses the draft money to get Fautanu, but it would probably need to trade up for him. In addition to becoming the Eagles’ potential right tackle, Fautanu may start as a rookie at right guard and kick inside.

Barton, who did exceptionally well in the athletic testing on Duke’s Pro Day, ought to be available with the 22nd overall selection. He might make his Eagles debut at guard right away, and with offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland’s guidance, he could grow into a top-tier right tackle prospect.
