Eagles reportedly interested in trading up to No. 4

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles and St. Louis Rams are interested in trading up for the 4th pick in the draft.

Ryan Tannehill #17 - 255

Could the Eagles target Tannehill?

It’s fairly safe to assume that the Rams would be targeting Justin Blackmon, but the Eagles interest is not as clear.

Blackmon would certainly add another dimension to their offense, and Morris Claiborne would shore up a shaky secondary.

But the biggest name on the board would be Ryan Tannehill, who the Eagles have met with this offseason and reportedly are very high on. It would be tough to justify spending a high pick on a quarterback so soon after locking up Michael Vick, but Eagles are one franchise definitely not concerned with conforming to what the general public believes is right.

Regardless of who the target may be, it’s difficult to see how any player on the board at No. 4 would be worth what it would cost for the Eagles to move up from No. 15.
