Dan Snyder Is Reportedly Taking Over Washington's Draft

For months, we've been so focused on the Eagles' plan going into the draft without even thinking about another huge factor that should help them: 

The rest of the division might be an inept mess at the front office level.  

Let's check in on Washington:

The Other Area – Aside From Drafting – Where Howie Roseman Has Struggled

Pederson Has Reportedly Already Handed Over Some Play-Calling Duties 

Oh, really?

So the Eagles have a power structure with a supportive owner in Jeffrey Lurie who has delegated power to a front office with Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas. Both seem to get along great with each other and with head coach Doug Pederson, creating a sound and cohesive environment. 

Meanwhile, the Eagles share a division with two overbearing and meddlesome owners in Dan Snyder and Jerry Jones, not to mention a general manager in New York's Dave Gentleman, who doesn't seem to know what the hell he's doing. 

At least you have to give the Cowboys a little credit. Jones is meddlesome, but they've had plenty of good draft picks over the last few years. 

But the Giants have picks No. 6 and 17, while the Skins have No. 15 and might move on up into the top five. Neither of those fanbases should have a high level of confidence those front offices will nail those picks.
