A new era of talent evaluation: Did the Eagles stick to their secret NFL Draft blueprint in 2018?

In the weeks leading up to the NFL Draft, I decided to dive into the draft history of Joe Douglas. While it’s Howie Roseman who ultimately makes the call, it’s the Vice President of Player Personnel who sets the board and in Roseman’s words ‘changed the way that the team evaluates talent’.
