As we pointed out after the Philadelphia Eagles' loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the wildcard round of the playoffs, the Birds will be picking 21st in the 2020 NFL Draft, you know, assuming they don't trade up or trade back, which they often do. 

Anyway, let's go ahead and look at the history of the 21st overall pick and the rest of the Eagles' known draft slots, going back, oh, 10 years, I guess. There are more misses than hits.
