Eagles could make big offer to move up to No. 2

New, comments

We have a reported price for the No. 2 pick if the Eagles want to move up. What would it take for the 49ers to climb up, if they were so inclined?

The Cleveland Browns are reportedly shopping the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, and the Philadelphia Eagles have been repeatedly mentioned as a logical trading partner. Now, we are hearing some more specifics about potential negotiations. FOX Sports NFL reporter Alex Marvez is hearing any deal would involve first and third round picks in both the 2016 and 2017 NFL Drafts.

Marvez seems to confirm that a deal would involve both third round picks the Eagles hold this year. Swapping firsts and sending along a first and three thirds is certainly a hefty price. But if the Eagles think they can get their quarterback of the future at No. 2, then so be it.

That being said, I highly doubt we see Cleveland deal this pick until we know who the Rams have selected at No. 1. The Browns might still have a shot at their QB of choice, and the team trading up needs to know if their QB of choice is there. And I imagine the Browns are all too happy to let the price be known for that No. 2.

The 49ers are one spot ahead of the Eagles in this year's draft order. If we are to believe this deal could be done, what do you think it would take for the 49ers to make the move? They only have one third round pick each year, so would the spot up allow them to reduce that third to their fourth? They hold a pair of trade fifths, so maybe it would be deducted even further. I don't think the 49ers make a deal for the No. 2 pick, but the price might be coming into focus.
