After months of breathless anticipation, we finally know where the Philadelphia Eagles will be selecting in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Eagles will select No. 14 overall after WINNING a coin toss held at the NFL Combine on Friday! The Indianapolis Colts lost the toss and will pick at No. 15.
Philadelphia traded their own first round pick (No. 12) to the Cleveland Browns as part of the Carson Wentz trade but the Eagles recouped value by dealing Sam Bradford to the Vikings prior to the start of the 2016 season last September.
It’s still hard to believe Howie Roseman was able to ship out Bradford in exchange for the No. 14 overall pick ... PLUS a 2018 conditional fourth-round selection! That’s a steal.
Here’s a quick history of players selected at the Eagles’ spot in recent years. As you can see, there have been some quality players selected in this draft slot.
