The Eagles are set for a cultural rebuild based on competition and accountability.

With a top-10 in the NFL draft and an offensive-minded coaching staff starting to take shape, it makes sense to give Carson Wentz or Jalen Hurts the game-changing weapon both players deserve.

In the latest post-Senior Bowl mock from Draft Wire, Philadelphia goes with a Heisman winner at No. 6.

6. Philadelphia Eagles | Alabama WR DeVonta Smith

No matter who ends up throwing passes for the Eagles next year, he’s going to need more play-making pass-catchers around him. Florida’s Kyle Pitts is the rare tight end prospect that should merit consideration here, but Smith’s incredible 2020 campaign might end up giving him the edge here. There will be questions about his slight frame, but you can’t hit what you can’t catch, and Smith made plenty of defenders miss this season.

The Eagles would do well landing any one of the trios that include Smith, Ja’Marr Chase, and Kyle Pitts.
