LET'S CONSIDER, "What if?" As in, "What if the Eagles stood pat for the 2016 draft? What if they never made the two big trades and simply drafted 13th?" And, so: A retro mock draft. It's impossible to completely put the horse back in the barn. The team's salary structure was altered the day it began delousing itself of the Chip Kelly era, trading Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso, DeMarco Murray and Mark Sanchez for picks. Its needs changed, too, some of which were filled before the draft; Sanchez and Maxwell, for instance.

FOR BETTER, for worse, this will always be the Carson Wentz draft. Wentz was back home in North Dakota by the time Howie Roseman hunkered down at NovaCare Saturday to make the final six selections of the Eagles' 2016 class, but the quarterback's presence was keenly felt. Roseman sat through the first three hours Saturday - the entire fourth round, and 13 picks worth of the fifth - before making his initial selection of the afternoon, West Virginia running back Wendell Smallwood, by way of Wilmington, Del.,153rd overall.

Doug Pederson said that Sam Bradford's absence could potentially affect his training with the Eagles and his standing as the starting quarterback. "Anybody that's not in any of the 32 offseason programs is losing valuable time," Pederson said Saturday after the completion of the NFL draft. Bradford requested to be traded last week several days after the Eagles traded up for the No. 2 draft pick, which the team eventually used to pick quarterback Carson Wentz. He has since stayed away from the voluntary offseason program.

Carson Wentz checked his cellphone after an afternoon workout on April 20 and saw a text message that would change his life, determine the future home of his brother and sister-in-law, and alter the course of Eagles history. Wentz's agent messaged him that the Eagles had traded for the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft. The former North Dakota State quarterback had an inkling that could mean he would play for the Eagles, but he was not positive. He still believed he might land with the Los Angeles Rams, who held the No. 1 pick and had just met with him hours earlier.

Wendell Smallwood grew up an Eagles fan 30 minutes away from the stadium, in Wilmington, idolizing Duce Staley. But on the day Smallwood, a running back from West Virginia, was drafted by his favorite team to be coached by his favorite player, the Eagles also needed to answer for concerns about Smallwood's character. Before Howie Roseman gushed about the Big 12's reigning rushing leader, he first explained that the Eagles "feel this is a good kid" whom they are "very comfortable bringing in here.

The Eagles, through their long and somewhat tortured history, have been familiar with strange situations at the quarterback position. It is that spot on the football depth chart where otherwise reliable decision-makers - including coaches, team executives, and the players themselves - come up with some head-scratching stuff, and never more than when a team is about to switch from one savior to the next. Just recently, the handoff from Michael Vick to Nick Foles was messy; as was the one from Donovan McNabb to Kevin Kolb; and, reaching further back, who else but Buddy Ryan could have used three quarterbacks in the same series (Ron Jaworski, Randall Cunningham, and Matt Cavanaugh in 1986)

Carson Wentz admitted to being antsy. It was his first day at his new job and he wanted the playbook. While the Eagles' projected starter, Sam Bradford, holds out for seemingly more job security, you wonder if his projected replacement will be able to hold out until the team stages its minicamp for rookies in two weeks. Asked what he'd be doing now that he had navigated his way through the long draft process that led to his second overall selection by the Eagles on Thursday night, Wentz did not hesitate with an answer.

We knew the Eagles would make their offensive line a focal point this weekend, after not drafting anyone there the past two years, and sure enough they did, using their only Friday selection on versatile Oregon State guard-center Isaac Seumalo. Seumalo, 6-5, 298, has played four of the five o-line positions for the Beavers. Both his father, Joe, and his brother, Andrew, have coached at OSU, where Andrew played defensive tackle. Several more heralded players were available when the Eagles made their only pick between Carson Wentz, the quarterback they took second overall Thursday, and Saturday's fifth round.

The Eagles drafted their first offensive lineman since 2013 on Friday when they selected Oregon State's Isaac Seumalo with the No. 79 overall pick. It came in the third round with the team's second pick of the draft, and it was used on a 6-foot-4, 303-pound lineman that coach Doug Pederson believes can vie for a starting job and is versatile enough to play every spot on the offensive line. "I think this kid can come in and compete and give us great depth at the spot," Pederson said.

This was Carson Wentz's day, but the Eagles couldn't avoid the other quarterback who wasn't in the room and hasn't been at the NovaCare Complex since requesting to be traded on Monday. Nor should Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson have been allowed to avoid him after they made the unprecedented decision to move up to the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft for a quarterback when they already had an entrenched starter in place. Whether you agree with Sam Bradford's reaction to what transpired last week or not - and it says here that he has overestimated his worth - what shouldn't be argued is that the Eagles did a poor job of anticipating the aftershocks of their franchise-altering trade.
