[UPDATE: 7:13 PM ET] Hey guys! I wanna thank you all for joining me over the last couple of days. It's been exhausting, but the NFL Draft has come to an end. Make sure to keep an eye on the BGN UDFA tracker for the latest signings and rumors!
[UPDATE: 6:13 PM ET] As much as I hate to say it, the Redskins and Cowboys have both had solid drafts...but there's still the Giants
[UPDATE: 5:35 PM ET] Had to step out for a moment but the Eagles have selected DT Elijah Qualls! A beefy tackle on defense!
[UPDATE: 3:58 PM ET] The Eagles will be converting Gerry to a LB.
[UPDATE: 3:49 PM ET] To end the 5th round, the Eagles will select Nathan Gerry, a safety from Nebraska! This is the Eagles' first defensive player taken today!
[UPDATE: 3:31 PM ET] The Eagles have one more pick in the 5th round! With two WRs and a HB, what direction would you like to see them go?
[UPDATE: 2:58 PM ET] The Eagles are on the clock and have selected Shelton Gibson out of WVU! Two Mountaineers for the Eagles after selecting Smallwood last year!
[UPDATE: 2:56 PM ET] The Eagles have traded back two spots with the Dolphins. They have traded picks 164 and 194 for 166 and 184. A little later, but Howie loves his trades!
[UPDATE: 2:27 PM ET] The Redskins have selected TE Jeremy Sprinkle, a TE. The Eagles have also traded back with the Titans to recoup a pick!
[UPDATE: 2:09 PM ET] The Broncos have selected Jake Butt, TE from Michigan! Should make for a ton of good jokes!
[UPDATE: 1:43 PM ET] Picks within the division today: Washington has selected HB Samaje Perrine and Safety Montae Nicholson, the Eagles have selected Mack Hollins and Donnel Pumphrey and the Cowboys have selected Ryan Switzer and the Giants are taking Wayne Gallman.
[UPDATE: 1:31 PM ET] The Cowboys have selected WR Ryan Switzer. Compared to Cole Beasley, who the Eagles struggled to cover. That should be fun. I haven't had a chance to watch Corn Elder, but I've heard he is a nasty slot corner. Hopefully he'll still be available when the Eagles are on the clock again.
[UPDATE: 1:25 PM ET] The Eagles will be picking Donnel Pumphrey. Smaller running back that has drawn Sproles comparisons, but weighed in at 169 lbs I do believe.
[UPDATE: 1:21 PM ET] The Eagles have traded up! They will select at 132!!!
[UPDATE: 12:54 PM ET] Dave Zangaro reports that Hollins is one of the receivers Went worked out with this offseason. Interesting!
Mack Hollins, the #Eagles pick at 118, was one of the receivers Wentz worked out with in California this offseason.— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaroCSN) April 29, 2017
[UPDATE: 12:44 PM ET] The Eagles have selected UNC WR Mack Hollins. 6'4 and supposedly a really good special teams player. Limited to seven games last year due to a broken collarbone.
[UPDATE: 12:25 AM ET] A few interesting talents off the board. Dede Westbrook and Jaleel Johnson! Somewhere John Barchard is weeping over Johnson
[UPDATE: 11:34 AM ET] Hey guys! It's @tjack94 here with you for the third straight day! The Eagles have needs on offense to address so hopefully they choose to do so today!
[UPDATE: 11:25 AM ET] Final open thread of this year's draft is up! BLG here. Tyler Jackson will once again be keeping this post fresh with updates above this one you’re currently reading. I'll be busy writing about the Eagles’ new draft picks. Follow me for updates on Twitter: @BrandonGowton. Here's to a final day.
