Philadelphia, PA - Now that the 2023 NFL Draft is over and the dust has settled, it would seem to be the perfect time to take a look at what we could be about to expect from the Philadelphia Eagles in the upcoming season.
The team finished just short last year when they were beaten by the Kansas City Chiefs 38-35 at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. There will have been heartache for everyone connected with the franchise. After dominating the regular season after going 14-3, and getting quarterback Jalen Hurts to sign a new deal, some are expecting them to go a step further and finally lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
The Eagles are among the online betting favorites for the championship, although the Chiefs do still remain the number one candidate for sportsbooks like Betway at this moment. However, with a number of new faces arriving at Lincoln Financial Field this offseason via the draft, what could we expect to see from The Birds next season?
Who did the Philadelphia Eagles draft?
The Eagles had a total of seven picks in the 2023 NFL draft, with Nick Sirianni and Howie Roseman using those picks to try and address the various needs that they will have identified within their squad. The picks that were made were:
- Jalen Carter (DT) - First Round No. 9
- Nolan Smith (LB) - First Round No. 30
- Tyler Steen (OL) - Second Round No. 65
- Sydney Brown (S) - Third Round No. 66
- Kelee Ringo (CB) - Fourth Round No. 105
- Tanner McKee (QB) - Sixth Round No. 188
- Moro Ojomo (DT) - Seventh Round No. 249
Naturally, there will be plenty of interest in what each of these players is able to achieve in their rookie years, with the NFL being unforgiving to those that do not step up and train in practice as well as they need to.
Carter, Smith, Steen, Brown, and even Ringo could all potentially see some time on the field as starters in games next season due to various needs, as well as due to their talent. However, McKee and Ojomo will likely have to experience the first year on the sidelines and bide their time as they learn how the NFL works.
Will The Philadelphia Eagles Challenge For The Super Bowl?
As mentioned, Betway has already made the Eagles one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl in this upcoming season. However, will they actually challenge for the title and make it all the way to Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada?
There is a suggestion that they could. The team has been described as “the rich-getting-richer team” following the 2023 NFL Draft. The decision to trade for running back D’Andre Swift is also another reason why many are jumping on the Eagles as a potential contender.

Of course, anything can happen when teams take to the gridiron, and there are seasons in which shocks do happen. The Philadelphia Eagles will, though, be hoping for more of the same next year and then have just enough to lift the Vince Lombardi trophy at the end of it on February 11, 2024!
