That is more than 20 players. The Eagles are going to have good choices. Not all of those guys will be on the Eagles board, but then again there will be other players picked who aren’t on the list above. The Eagles will have good options. Here are the guys who I think have a chance to be on the board at 52 and make some sense for the Eagles.DE Kemoko Turay, RB Kerryon Johnson, WR Christian Kirk, DE Uchenna Nwosu, CB Donte Jackson, OL Austin Corbett, LB Darius Leonard.

Eagles Make Move For Now, And The Future -
At 11:30 p.m., exactly as planned, the Eagles went on the clock with the 32nd pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft and … did pretty much was everyone expected: Keeping in mind the present and the future, the Eagles dealt the 32nd pick and a fourth-round pick (No. 132 overall) and received from Baltimore the 52nd pick and the No. 125 pick this year and, this is the big add, a second-round pick from the Ravens in 2019. Welcome to the present. And the future. Anyway, as the football administration team gathered outside the brand-spanking-new draft room with the Eagles on the clock and, a few minutes before the announcement came on television, a loud cheer came from the decision-makers inside the room, and Howie Roseman emerged to explain the deal.

Rubbing it in: Eagles fans enjoy basking in Super success at Dallas draft - Daily News
Though Philadelphia had an option on a second draft year, and the first-ever outdoor draft was incredibly well received, the second year option depended on the NFL, and the league opted to take its event to Dallas. “They had to go ahead and buy the draft from us – [Dallas owner] Jerry Jones bought the draft out of Philly, even though we put on the best show the draft has ever seen,” Jardine said. “So we came down here for a couple of reasons: To remind them that Philly still put on the best draft, and also, that we are world champions.” Gray, 30, said: “Overall, it’s been much, much fun … What better way to seal off the Super Bowl than coming down to Dallas and showing who we are, showing support for our team?”

Keeping up with Eagles’ 2018 opponents in draft - NBC Sports Philadelphia
The first day of the 2018 NFL draft finally arrived, but thanks to their Super Bowl victory, the Eagles had the last pick of the first round. And they ended up never making the selection. The first round is where teams can find stars who come in and take the NFL by storm in their rookie seasons, so the following guys might get in the Eagles’ way in 2018. Of the Eagles’ 13 opponents this season, two didn’t have first-round picks: the Rams and Texans. But the other 11 were scheduled to take players, so here’s an updated list of who they took:

18. Connor Williams, Texas – tackle. Scrap Williams’ injury-riddled 2017 tape and go back to his sophomore year. That season he was utterly dominant and allowed only four pressures all season. Not many true sophomores are capable of the level of play we saw from Williams in 2016, as he flashed all the tools necessary to be a high-level tackle in the NFL.

The Winners and Losers From Round 1 of the NFL Draft - The Ringer
Loser: Sam Bradford (and Everybody Else in Josh Rosen’s Way). Two years ago, Sam Bradford signed a $36 million contract with the Eagles—two months before the Eagles selected Carson Wentz with the second pick in the 2016 draft. A month and a half ago, Bradford signed a $20 million contract with the Cardinals—and Thursday night, Arizona traded up to take Josh Rosen, who surprisingly dropped all the way to the 10th pick in the draft. Rosen provided the quote of the night about his fall.

How each team can win or lose with their first picks in the 2018 NFL Draft - SB Nation
There isn’t much to complain about in Philadelphia this offseason. The Eagles managed their way around a tricky salary cap situation to keep the bulk of an NFL championship team intact. Losses on the defensive side of the depth chart — most notably Patrick Robinson, Beau Allen, and Vinny Curry — present a need for some additional bulk in the trenches, but that’s more of a depth issue than a need for star power. That’s good, because the Eagles have the last pick of the draft’s first round, which should provide plenty of opportunities to draft capable contributors on the defensive end.
