The first three rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft are over. Now the excitement shifts to Day 3, which features rounds four through seven.
The Philadelphia Eagles currently have just two picks remaining in this year’s draft: a fourth-round selection at No. 138 overall and a fifth-round selection at No. 163 overall.
If the Eagles don’t add any more picks today, they’ll finish the NFL Draft with just five total selections. That’s the same amount they had last year. It’s a pretty low figure, especially considering team owner Jeffrey Lurie was just talking about the importance of drafting in volume at the NFL’s league meetings in March.
The Eagles still have an opportunity to add more picks. They could also look to move down from one of their current spots. Alternatively, they could look to trade a player like Halapoulivaati Vaitai. The value has to be right, though, because the Eagles could always just hold on to Big V and count on getting a compensatory pick for him in the future. Speaking of comp picks, the Eagles are projected to receive at least two of those in the 2020 NFL Draft. Philadelphia could use a future pick to get themselves an extra selection today on Day 3.
Defensive line, safety, interior offensive line, and linebacker are the positions the Eagles will likely be targeting on the final day of this year’s draft. BGN’s Michael Kist notes that there are still plenty of talented players remaining on the board.
Here’s hoping the Eagles close things out strong before turning to undrafted free agency later this evening.
