The Philadelphia Eagles have been really active this offseason. Entering the pre-draft period with the No. 6 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Philadelphia struck a deal with the Miami Dolphins to move back to No. 12.

But it doesn't sound like the Eagles are done dealing quite yet. Per a report from The Athletic's Ben Standig, Philadelphia is considering moving back into the top-10 picks of the draft.

Eagles Draft Trade Rumors

This would be a pretty surprising move, but it's not too dissimilar to what we saw Miami do earlier this offseason. The Dolphins had the No. 3 pick in the draft, moved back to No. 12, then got all the way back up to No. 6 in that deal with the Eagles.

Perhaps general manager Howie Roseman is considering a similar move.

If he is, trading to No. 7 would arguably make the most sense. The Detroit Lions have been rumored to be interested in trading down, and it'd be a logical move for a rebuilding team. Plus, this would also vault the Eagles back ahead of their division rivals in the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, who pick at Nos. 10 and 11, respectively.

But it wouldn't be a shock to see Philadelphia explore deals with the Carolina Panthers (No. 8), who have seemingly solved their quarterback issue, or the Denver Broncos (No. 9), who could be interested in trading down if they miss out on one of the top-tier QBs.

It's difficult to imagine Philadelphia getting any higher than No. 7. But if an elite pass-catcher like Ja'Marr Chase or Kyle Pitts begins to slip, the Eagles might be interested in making a move back into the top 10.
