The Eagles didn’t get quite as many compensatory picks this offseason that we had hoped for, but the team still has seven total picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. Howie Roseman has talked about how he uses free agency to make sure there aren’t any “must gets” once they reach the draft, and can instead add depth throughout the roster.
1st - No. 25
There’s been plenty of speculation as to whether the team will trade up or down, but for right now, the team will start off Thursday night’s Round 1 at the No. 25 overall spot. The event will kick-off at 8 p.m. ET, and will be aired on ABC, ESPN, and NFL Network.
Each team gets 10 minutes on the clock for their first round picks, so should the Eagles not get involved in any kind of first round trades — and with teams (hopefully) having less names to rearrange on their big boards in Round 1 — Philadelphia’s pick should come in around 10-10:30 p.m. ET.
Last 5 No. 25 picks:
- 2018: Hayden Hurst (TE), Ravens
- 2017: Jabrill Peppers (S), Browns
- 2016: Artie Burns (CB), Steelers
- 2015: Shaw Thompson (OLB), Panthers
- 2014: Jason Verrett (DB), Chargers
2nd - No. 53 (from Ravens)
Round 2 and 3 will get underway on Friday evening, with the action beginning at 7 p.m. ET (again, airing on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network). The Eagles have 2 second round picks, but no third rounder — for now — so it could be an early night.
Teams have slightly less time on Friday, getting 7 minutes per pick to speed things up, meaning you can expect the Eagles to be on the clock twice around 8-8:30 p.m. ET.
Eagles’ legend Mike Quick is set to announce the Round 2 pick for Philadelphia, and I’m assuming he’ll handle the first of the two seconds.
Last 5 No. 53 picks:
- 2018: M.J. Stewart (CB), Buccaneers
- 2017: Teez Tabor (CB), Lions
- 2016: Su’a Cravens (OLB), Washington
- 2015: Jake Fisher (T), Bengals
- 2014: Davante Adams (WR), Packers
2nd - No. 57
The Eagles will be on the board just four picks later at No. 57, probably around 8:30 p.m. ET.
Brent Celek was scheduled to make the Round 3 pick for the team, but since they currently don’t have one, my bet is that he makes the second Round 2 pick for Philadelphia on Friday.
Last 5 No. 57 picks:
- 2018: Isaiah Oliver (CB), Falcons
- 2017: Zach Cunningham (LB), Texans
- 2016: T.J. Green (S), Colts
- 2015: Rob Havenstein (T), Rams
- 2014: Carlos Hyde (RB), 49ers
4th - No. 127
The final day of the draft will see teams push through Rounds 4-7 on Saturday beginning at Noon p.m. ET, getting 5 minutes per pick in Rounds 4-6 and 4 minutes per pick in Round 7.
The Eagles will have to wait until later in the fourth round to add another rookie to their roster, probably around 1:30 p.m. ET.
The NFL announced several of the Day 3 picks will be made on location at sites chosen by teams around the country and world. Last year, Jason Avant made a pick in front of Independence Hall, so you can imagine what kind of spot the Eagles might have in mind.
Last 5 No. 127 picks:
- 2018: Rick Leonard (T), Saints
- 2017: Michael Roberts (TE), Lions
- 2016: Deiondre Hall (CB), Bears
- 2015: Damien Wilson (ILB), Cowboys
- 2014: Pierre Desir (DB), Browns
4th - No. 138 (compensatory)
The Eagles have the final pick of Round 4, and should be back on the clock closer to 2 p.m. ET to finish it out.
Last 5 No. 138 picks:
- 2018: Cole Madison (G), Packers
- 2017: Ryan Glassgow (DT), Bengals
- 2016: Seth Devalve (TE), Browns
- 2015: David Cobb (RB), Titans
- 2014: Lorenzo Taliaferro (RB), Ravens
5th - No. 163
Philly won’t be back on the clock until late in the fifth round giving you the perfect chance to do any random chores around the house — or take a quick nap. The Eagles should be ready to make their 6th selection of 2019 around 3-3:30 p.m. ET.
Last 5 No. 163 picks:
- 2018: Time Settle (DT), Washington
- 2017: Matt Milano (LB), Bills
- 2016: Trevor Davis (WR), Packers
- 2015: Ryan Russell (DE), Cowboys
- 2014: Aaron Murray (QB), Chiefs
6th - No. 197
As we get deeper in the rounds, they tend to get a little longer despite each pick going a little quicker. Teams don’t quite use the full clock, and there’s fewer trade options at this point. The Eagles final (scheduled) pick of the 2019 NFL Draft will come mid-way through Round 6 and should happen around 4:30-5 p.m. ET.
Last 5 No. 198 picks:
- 2018: Kahlil McKenzie (DT), Chiefs
- 2017: D.J. Jones (DT), 49ers
- 2016: Derek Watt (FB), Chargers
- 2015: Randall Telfer (TE), Browns
- 2014: Zach Moore (DE), Patriots
