The Philadelphia Eagles entered the 2019 NFL Draft with seven picks and left with only five new rookies (for the second year in a row). Here’s a complete recap of this year’s draft class.

1st - No. 22 - Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State

2nd - No. 53 - Miles Sanders, RB, Penn State

2nd - No. 57 - J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford

4th - No. 138 - Shareef Miller, DE, Penn State

5th - No. 167 - Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern

And here’s a look back at Bleeding Green Nation’s coverage so far for each individual pick.

ANDRE DILLARD

MILES SANDERS

Figures to be an immediate contributor to the Eagles’ running back rotation. Could potentially be the Eagles’ leading rusher in the future, if not this season.

TRADE CONSIDERATIONS

The Eagles used No. 25, No. 127, and No. 197 to move up to No. 21 to select Dillard.

The Eagles gave up their 2019 third-round pick for Golden Tate. Tate signing with the Giants will potentially earn the Eagles a fourth-round compensatory pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Eagles traded their 2019 sixth-round pick to the Buccaneers for DeSean Jackson and Tampa Bay’s 2020 seventh-round pick.

The Eagles traded No. 246 overall to the Colts in exchange for Indianapolis defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway.

UDFA

The Eagles obviously aren’t done adding to their roster; they’ll be signing more players in undrafted free agency. Philadelphia has been able to find some UDFA contributors in recent years; look no further than Corey Clement and Josh Adams. The hope is that Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas can find more diamonds in the rough.
