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

JALEN REAGOR

Immediate contributor at wide receiver who can help the Eagles be more explosive. Could also be the primary punt returner.

JALEN HURTS

No. 2 quarterback behind Carson Wentz. And maybe he’ll immediately contribute in a Taysom Hill kind of role?

DAVION TAYLOR

K’VON WALLACE

Versatile defensive back who has the chance to contribute as a role player but might just be a backup at first.

K’Von Wallace already loves Eagles fans

JACK DRISCOLL

Listed at offensive tackle by the Eagles but played guard and spent effort learning the center position. Versatile backup.

JOHN HIGHTOWER

Not a pure burner but he’s fast and will have a chance to compete for a fifth or sixth receiver spot.

SHAUN BRADLEY

Could earn a roster spot by standing out on special teams and providing linebacker depth.

Speedy deep threat who, like Hightower, will compete for a fifth or sixth receiver spot.

PRINCE TEGA WANOGHO

Has the potential to be the Eagles’ backup left tackle if he can stay healthy. Plus, Andre Dillard bust insurance.

CASEY TOOHILL

Tweener who might be able to develop into a backup.

NFL Draft Results: Eagles pick Casey Toohill at No. 233

TRADE CONSIDERATIONS

The Eagles ultimately traded picks No. 146 and No. 190 into ... No. 196, No. 200, No. 210, No. 233, a 2021 fifth-round pick from the Dallas Cowboys, and Marquise Goodwin.

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 such as T.J. Edwards, Anthony Rush, Josh Adams, Corey Clement, etc. The hope is that Howie Roseman can find more diamonds in the rough.
