Have the Eagles already failed Jalen Hurts by trading the 6th overall pick?

The 2021 NFL Draft hasn’t even started. Already, the Eagles have done to their lone QB on the roster, the same thing they did to their previous starter. They have already failed Jalen Hurts.

Last Monday, the Eagles had the sixth overall pick. They would, in theory, have their pick of either the most transcendent TE prospect coming out of the draft, or the top receiver of the last three years.

On Friday, dreams of taking the perfect receiver to grow with Hurts were shattered. The Eagles traded the sixth overall pick to the Miami Dolphins along with a fifth-rounderfor the 12th overall pick, next year’s first-round pick for Miami, and the 123rd overall pick.
