We know the Eagles have talked to Arizona about Anquan Boldin. There have been reports that the team has checked with the Bengals about Chad Johnson. The Eagles have been linked with draft prospects like Darrius Heyward-Bey and Hakeem Nicks.
All of these guys are big WRs. DHB has tremendous speed. The other guys are thick, strong, possession type WRs. There is another player in the draft that sorta fits this description...Michael Crabtree of Texas Tech.
In my final mock I had him fall out of the Top Ten. Let's say that happens. Should the Eagles consider moving up? Would the Eagles consider moving up?
We know trading up doesn't have the usual cost this year. I wonder if we could move up with Jacksonville for 21, Reggie Brown, and a lesser pick. Should Crabtree fall to the Saints spot at 14, they could be a partner. The Saints are hoping to pick up extra draft choices.
Crabtree has his warts, but could be an interesting target if he truly does slide like we're hearing he might.
