This post will host constant updates regarding draft rumors, surprising picks, trade updates, hot takes, and more, while also serving as an open thread for discussion in the comments. The Philadelphia Eagles are currently set to pick at No. 53 and No. 57. It’s also possible they could trade up or down, though.
Stay tuned to Bleeding Green Nation for the latest updates regarding Eagles moves and others made around the league. Also make sure to listen to our BGN Radio podcasts that’ll be posted shortly after the Eagles make their picks.

[UPDATE: 11:28 PM ET] That’s it folks, we have survived Rounds 2 and 3. I’d say that Round 3 was boring without any Eagles picks, but the evening was still way more fun than last year when they didn’t pick at all on Day 2. Howie was sure to keep both of Philly’s picks on Saturday, and are set to get back on the clock at No. 138 (Round 4) and 163 (Round 5).
[UPDATE: 11:07 PM ET] The New Giants picked Oshane Ximines, DE from Old Dominion at No. 95. Not a super exciting pick, but one that should spare Dave Gettleman being the butt of a few dozen more jokes for his incredibly bad draft choices.
[UPDATE: 10:56 PM ET] The Cowboys took their own Penn State alumnus at No. 90 with center Connor McGovern.
And then the Vikings were on the board, and one again made a trade. That means they’ve traded picks No. 81 (Lions), 88 (Seahawks), 92 (Jets) and 93 (Ravens). So, they’ve added picks No. 102, 159, 191, 193, 204, and 217 and will be extra busy now on Saturday.
[UPDATE: 10:50 PM ET] The Seahawks traded up to the No. 88 pick to take linebacker Cody Barton, sending their No. 92 and 159 picks to the Vikings.
[UPDATE: 10:17 PM ET] Washington added another Buckeye at No. 78, picking wide receiver Terry McLaurin. His familiarity with Dwayne Haskins should help them both transition to the NFL a bit easier, but we’re still talking about Jay Gruden, so who knows...
[UPDATE: 9:46 PM ET] Ok, so a lot has happened since the last Eagles pick: The Cowboys made their first pick of this year’s draft (Trysten Hill, DT, UCF), the Dolphins traded the Cardinals for Josh Rosen, and D.K. Metcalfe came off the board with the final pick of Round 2 and is heading to Seattle.
[UPDATE: 9:00 PM ET] Brent Celek led the crowd in an E-A-G-L-E-S chant and announced that Philly added ANOTHER skill player, picking JJ Arcega-Whiteside, wide receiver out of Stanford. Oooohhhh I love Howie Roseman.
[UPDATE: 8:45 PM ET] EAGLES ARE FINALLY ON THE CLOCK! (About time) Mike Quick made the pick for Philly and they landed running back Miles Sanders out of Penn State. This was a really, really good pick for the team who still doesn’t know whether Darren Sproles will return.
Sanders had a really good combine and doesn’t have a ton of miles on his legs having played behind Saquan Barkley for a few seasons.
Although, I asked him his thoughts about Wawa at the Combine and he said, being from Pittsburgh, he was a Sheetz guy...
[UPDATE: 8:20 PM ET] We are now almost 1.5 hours into Round 2 and I am ALL the way over these NFL legends making picks, and also over them holding onto the picks for minutes after they are in. There are a lot of picks left, so let’s get this show on the road. Puh-lease.
[UPDATE: 8:15 PM ET] The Patriots traded up for the Rams’ No. 45 pick to take Joejuan Williams, CB out of Vanderbilt, giving up the No. 56 and 101 picks in the move. And right after that, the Browns traded for the No. 46 pick from the Colts — giving up No. 49 and 144 — to get Greedy Williams...another cornerback off the board.
[UPDATE: 7:55 PM ET] Eagles look good having moved up to take Andre Dillard, the first round was DL heavy, but there’s been a run on offensive tackles/guards through the first 10 picks of Round 2. There’s also already been three trades, so Friday night is at least staying interesting. (Although, I could do without all the legends goading the crowd with every pick, but whatever.)
[UPDATE: 7:23 PM ET] The Oakland Raiders traded the No. 35 pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars who went with Jawaan Taylor, offensive tackle out of Florida.
Oakland trades: 35, 140, 235.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) April 26, 2019
Jaguars trade: 38, 109.
[UPDATE: 7:19 PM ET] Round 2 starts off with a pair of CBs coming off the board. The Cardinals — who have yet to trade Josh Rosen to the Dolphins as of now — took Byron Murphy, and the Colts at No. 34 took Rock Ya-Sin. Indianapolis reportedly had a lot of trade offers, but didn’t budge and got their guy.
[UPDATE: 6:58 PM ET] Hey Team! Alexis, here, and I am ready for Day 2! We’ll get to see Mike Quick and Brent Celek announce the Eagles picks, and the Giants and probably Cowboys make some (more) bad decisions. Let’s goooooo!
[UPDATE: 6:25 PM ET] Thread’s up! BLG here. The amazing Alexis Chassen will once again be keeping this post fresh with updates above this one you’re currently reading.
