Eagles’ GM Howie Roseman is looking to make a statement with his invariant commitment to the trenches

We all enjoyed the hopeful banter that centered on a potential Bijan Robinson selection, but the truth is that Howie Roseman builds from the inside out.

Even with a draft full of star power at the running back and quarterback positions, the Eagles GM stayed the course, using four of his seven draft picks on offensive or defensive linemen.

After selecting Jalen Carter, Nolan Smith, Tyler Steen, and Moro Ojomo, Roseman gave insight into the “message he wants to send” and the direction this franchise wants to travel.

“Yeah, it just represents how we feel. We want to build a team with an O-line and D-line, and it was important for us to make a statement in this draft in this off-season that this is how we believe we’re going to win.”

“I think we had a press conference, and I said it’s probably going to be a little bit predictable of an off-season, we’re probably going to go O-line and D-line, you guys know how we try to build it, and I think every opportunity we had in this draft were the grades were the same, so we weren’t going off the draft board, and we saw a lineman, we wanted to pick that lineman. I think it worked out.”

The Eagles are loaded on offense, solid on defense, and buoyed by star power and elite talent on both the offensive and defensive line; they’ll come at you in waves hoping to shock and awe the opposition.
