Dream NFL Draft targets for Eagles to build unstoppable offense around Jalen Hurts

A new offensive coordinator… A former MVP candidate that everyone has questions about… The Philadelphia Eagles are going to, again, be an intriguing team to watch, one that has stars at every position on the offensive depth chart.

That MVP candidate? Perhaps, you have heard of him. His name is Jalen Hurts. Those paychecks are going to be fatter during the coming NFL season, but for him to be successful, Philly needs to continue building the supporting cast that he has around him.

Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

We’re never going to put a ton of stock in any theory that ends with the Eagles investing early draft capital into a running back. It would have been interesting to see what type of discussions we would have heard had Jalen Carter been taken earlier in the 2023 NFL Draft and had Bijan Robinson been available when the Birds were on the clock to make their choice.

Something tells us that Philly still wouldn’t have selected Bijan even though there was a large contingent that wanted them to do so. That being said, Michigan’s Blake Corum in an Eagles jersey seems like an impossibility, but you have to admit. It would be fun to watch Philly’s offense operate with him in the lineup.

We can dream though, right? We’ll see what happens come draft time because this time last year we thought Carter’s selection was impossible.

Rome Udunze, WR, Washington
The Eagles brass loves to see their team air it out. They’d much rather do that than win on the ground, so expect there to be an emphasis placed on finding targets for Jalen Hurts. Rome Udunze is six-foot-three and tips the scales at 201 pounds. He does just about everything well, but there are questions about whether or not he can separate from NFL cornerbacks.

Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas
It seems doubtful that Philly would invest significant draft capital into the tight end position seeing as how Dallas Goedert is on the squad and Philly just inked Albert Okwuegbunam to a one-year extension. We can dream though.

There’s no way the Birds would land Brock Bowers out of Georgia. We can hang that up. Ja’Tavion Sanders in Midnight Green is probably a fantasy too, but just for kicks, we’re going to throw him on our list anyway.

Keep an eye on Ben Sinnott (Kansas State), Theo Johnson (Penn State), and Jaheim Bell (Florida State). All would make exceptional consolation prizes.

Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU
Brian Thomas is fun to watch. He’s also a potential mismatch at the professional level. He’s six-foot-four. He weighs 205 pounds, and he’s probably a potential 4.4-second 40-yard dash guy.

According to the homies at Walter Football, “In terms of size, speed, athleticism, and upside, Thomas is probably second only to Marvin Harrison Jr. among the wide receiver prospects for the 2024 NFL Draft.”. In 2023, during his final collegiate season at LSU, he racked up 68 catches for 1,177 yards and 17 touchdowns.
