Philadelphia Eagles GM Howie Roseman Is A Fool For Passing On Vikings Star WR Justin Jefferson

Minnesota Vikings rookie receiver Justin Jefferson has been an absolute unit this year and that continued today with seven receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns. Remember when Eagles general manager Howie Roseman decided to draft Jalen Reagor over Justin Jefferson with the 21st pick in the first round?

A completely idiotic decision that will haunt Eagles fans for years. Just take a gander at this route.

Most NFL executives scoffed anonymously over the Eagles failure to select Justin Jefferson. Sometimes front offices get too fancy with their draft picks and this is a perfect example. Fans expected Jefferson to land in Philly, which had much to do with this type of game film. That route is absolutely gross and no one can cover this kid. Should be torching the NFC East right now, but instead lands in Minnesota as a gift from the football gods.

Even Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins can’t miss these wide open throws, so maybe Carson Wentz could have used Justin Jefferson? Now the Philadelphia Eagles can’t compete in the worst division we’ve ever seen.

Moral of the story: Justin Jefferson is torching NFL defenses with ease and it’s been fun to watch. Any NFL executive keeping their job after doing what Howie Roseman did in the 2020 NFL Draft is baffling.

  1. Howie Roseman came to the Eagles as a salary cap guy to assist Joe Banner. Over time, owner Jeff Lurie makes him GM. Roseman is a little, nerdy numbers guy who desperately wanted to be seen as a “football man.” He has no business evaluating talent and as evidence for that just look at his draft, free agent selections. He got extremely lucky during the year they won the Super Bowl. Needs to go but he’s buddy buddy with Lurie.
