2014 NFL Draft: Will the Eagles trade a player?

The Eagles may be looking to make some changes on their roster. Could the team deal a current player to pick up more picks?

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

It has been well-documented that the Eagles only have six draft picks this weekend. However, if the Eagles are willing to move some veterans, they could deal that player for a draft pick. While the Eagles couldn't get value for DeSean Jackson, perhaps the team could have better luck with the likes of Bryce Brown, Brandon Graham or a mystery player.

Graham seems to be the most likely player to be dealt during the NFL Draft for several reasons. He is not much of a scheme fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker and certainly could use a change of scenery. A move to a new city and back to a 4-3 defense could do wonders for a player that has shown flashes but has consistently faced adversity. ESPN's Adam Caplan alluded to a possible move on Twitter on Thursday:

Third-year running back Bryce Brown is also a possibility to get dealt. The issue with Brown could be value, as the Eagles aren't likely to give him up for poor compensation. He has showed inconsistency throughout his career and looked uncomfortable in the Eagles offense last season. Perhaps, Andy Reid would like to snatch him away and add a tough guy to the tandem of Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis.

Another possibility could be a player that the media and fans didn't see coming. Matt Barkley? Nick Foles? LeSean McCoy? Evan Mathis? Could any of those guys be dealt for the right price? It is certainly possible.
