Miami Dolphin’s Broad Receiver DeVante Parker could be handled before the NFL’s October 30 trading deadline, according to several reports.
NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reported Saturday that the dolphins are seeking a third round of selecting for Parker. While the dolphins do not actively trade Parker, 25, they have had multi-layer discussions on an agreement for the previous first round pick, per Pelissero.
Miami Army Armando Salguero added that Dolphins are willing to share Parker properly. The organization is also comfortable to hang on to the fourth year old player.
The Eagles currently need a deeply threatening recipient in the crime. While a third round may seem like a steep price, the eagles can watch Parker as a long-term investment.
Should the eagles be interested in Parker? Let’s break down Parker’s appeal to find out if he’s worth the investment of a third-party election for Philadelphia.
The eagles may be interested
A third round picking is considered a relatively valuable choice throughout the league. While it has an appeal for a Day 2 election, the results of that round are usually scattered. The Eagles have been hit or miss with third round picks that go back to Andy Reid.
Here is a look at the eagle’s third rounds from 2013-17 (Philadelphia did not have a third round to choose this year):
2017: CB Rasul Douglas
2016: G Isaac Seumalo
2015: LB Jordan Hicks
2014: WR Josh Huff
2013: Bennie Logan
Off The five players are Logan and Hicks, the only ones who developed significant roles with the eagles. Hicks has been injured relatively often after falling due to health problems. Logan has become a journeyman since leaving Philadelphia in 2016.
If Parker makes a difference for the long-term crime, he would be worth the value of a Seumalo or Douglas.
