Eagles Want To Trade Up For Safety

Philadelphia Eagles v San Diego Chargers

Per PFT, the Eagles want to trade up to get either safeties Eric Berry or Earl Thomas and they have the ammunition to do so.

Peter King of SI.com reports that the Eagles want to move up into first half of the first round, and that they’d like to get either Eric Berry of Tennessee or Earl Thomas of Texas. (Our mock draft has Berry going seventh and Thomas going 21st.)

King writes that the Dolphins, who have the 12th pick, could be the Eagles’ trading partners. Dolphins boss Bill Parcells would like to have a second-round pick, but Miami currently doesn’t have one after the Brandon Marshall trade.

For Philadelphia, moving up would likely involve the Eagles giving up their own first-round pick (24th overall) and one or two of their other picks, which include the 35th, 55th and 70th overall.

Apparently the Chiefs either have a trading partner or competition. If Berry falls to us at number five and the Eagles want to trade, do you do so?  Maybe they (The Eagles) swap picks with the Bucs or Redskins to jump in front of the Chiefs. 

What do you think?
