It could’ve been worse.

The Baltimore Ravens have been officially eliminated from the 2019 NFL Payoffs after losing to the Los Angeles Chargers in the Wild Card round, 23 to 17.

This outcome is good news for the Philadelphia Eagles, who own Baltimore’s second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Ravens traded their 2019 second-rounder to Philly in order to move up and draft Lamar Jackson at No. 32 overall in 2018.

Obviously, it would’ve been more ideal if the Ravens didn’t make the playoffs at all and instead had a really bad season. But at least Baltimore won’t be advancing past Wild Card weekend. The pick the Eagles will receive will be higher than the final eight selections in the second round.

The Eagles are currently projected to own nine selections in 2019. They’re missing their third-round pick due to the Golden Tate trade. Their seventh-round picks are gone due to the trades for Jordan Mailata and Deiondre’ Hall. The Eagles were originally scheduled to get a compensatory pick for LeGarrette Blount signing with the Lions but the Chargers cutting Caleb Strugis negated that possibility.

Full list of projected picks below. Note that comp picks will likely be officially announced in late February.
