Carson Wentz says Eagles haven’t called him since trade for No. 2 pick
Top NFL draft prospect Carson Wentz has not been contacted by the Eagles since Philadelphia traded up for the No. 2 draft pick, he told CBS Sports on Wednesday.
The majority of SI’s NFL experts have predicted Wentz will be selected with the second pick of the draft by the Eagles, but the team has not given him any indication of their plans, according to Wentz.
The Eagles traded their No. 8 pick plus a third- and fourth-round pick in this year’s draft to the Cleveland Browns for the right to pick second. Philadelphia also sent the Browns a first-round pick in next year’s draft and a second-round pick in 2018.
The Los Angeles Rams will pick before the Eagles and are also expected to select a quarterback, likely either Wentz or Cal quarterback Jared Goff.
The 2016 NFL draft will begin at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday with each team selecting its first-round pick.
