The Philadelphia Eagles enter the third and final day of the 2017 NFL Draft, which includes rounds four through seven, with a total of five selections. Day three officially begins today at noon, 12:00 PM ET. The Eagles' first selection will come at No. 119 overall (barring any trades).
Philadelphia entered the 2016 NFL Draft with eight selections. So far, the Birds have made three picks. The team drafted Derek Barnett in the first round on Thursday. Then they drafted two cornerbacks on Day 2: Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas.
To some surprise, Philadelphia hasn’t made a single in-draft trade yet. Maybe that will change today.
Speaking of trades, the Eagles have an extra fourth-round selection this year due to the Carson Wentz trade with the Browns last year. In addition to that pick, the Eagles have their own pick in every round.
The biggest position that still needs to be addressed is running back. With Ryan Mathews expected to be released, the only rushers currently on the roster include: Darren Sproles, Wendell Smallwood, and Terrell Watson. That’s not an overly inspiring group considering Sproles will retire after this season, Smallwood is far from proven in the NFL, and Watson has played in one NFL game.
Other positions of interest include wide receiver, defensive tackle, linebacker, and offensive tackle.
