Colin Cowherd: “Baltimore had the noisiest offseason, I think Philadelphia has had the best offseason. They re-signed Jason Kelce for one more year, then they got Lane Johnson to get an extension, then they paid Jalen Hurts, and then last night they got two excellent defensive linemen, including someone with a little baggage, Jalen Carter, who was the best player I saw. I struggled watching teams pass on him, I thought Seattle should have gone with them. Then they got an excellent edge rusher at the end of round 1. The NFL is not that complicated, the smart teams get it. Get the quarterback right, then protect the quarterback, then get the quarterback weapons, and then draft defensive guys up-front that can make the other quarterback hurried, uncomfortable, sacked, hurt, worried. The Eagles did that in the first round, they checked all four boxes. They let a couple linebackers go and bad organizations, Chicago and Arizona, overpaid for them. They lost some coordinators but this is a lot of brainpower in the building. When you watch the Draft doesn’t it feel like the smartest people do the smartest things? The Eagles won a Super Bowl with a quarterback and a coach, moved off both, then went to another Super Bowl with another quarterback and another coach. There’s a lot of brainpower in that building.”
Watch Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks this team won Round One of Thursday night’s opening round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
Check out the segment above as Colin talks about the Eagles selecting DT Jalen Carter at no. 9, and edge rusher Nolan Smith at no. 30.
