Eagles general manager Howie Roseman has been much maligned for his inability to properly judge talent during the NFL draft process.
With Philadelphia missing on several big names over the past few seasons and the Eagles rosters bare of any young star talent, the organization quietly hired former Chiefs and Browns GM, John Dorsey, as a personnel consultant.
With Kansas City, Dorsey drafted several key contributors to the Chiefs’ Super Bowl LIV winning team, including superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes, star receiver Tyreek Hill, and star tight end Travis Kelce.
With the Browns, Dorsey drafted quarterback Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) 1st overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Dorsey also drafted No. 4 overall pick cornerback Denzel Ward (Ohio State), and running back Nick Chubb (Georgia) in the Second Round.
Dorsey also traded for star wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, Jr., as well as acquiring other assets via trade and the draft (cornerback Greedy Williams, running back Kareem Hunt, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, and defensive end Olivier Vernon).
Keeping Dorsey close to the vest could allow Howie Roseman to flourish as the face of the team’s front-office while ceding some of the player evaluation responsibility to Dorsey going forward.
