And here’s a look back at Bleeding Green Nation’s coverage so far for each individual pick.
Immediate difference-maker at the wide receiver position. CANNOT WAIT to watch him play.

In the mix to start as a rookie due to the Eagles’ lack of cornerback depth. Someone for Jonathan Gannon to coach up.
NFL Draft Results: Eagles select Zech McPhearson at pick No. 123
Not likely to ever be a high-volume player but can be an effective role-player in the backfield. Pass-catching production and juice in the running game.
NFL Draft Results: Eagles select Kenneth Gainwell at pick No. 150
Figures to be a rotational interior defender in the NFL.
NFL Draft Results: Eagles select Marlon Tuipulotu at pick No. 189
Has the potential to be part of the defensive end rotation.
NFL Draft Results: Eagles select Tarron Jackson at pick No. 191
Interesting linebacker/safety hybrid.
NFL Draft Results: Eagles select JaCoby Stevens at pick No. 224
Edge rusher prospect converting to linebacker in the NFL.
NFL Draft Results: Eagles select Patrick Johnson at pick No. 234
As a reminder, the Eagles picked up the Miami Dolphins’ 2022 first-round pick in their trade down to No. 12.
The Eagles also own a conditional 2022 second-round pick from the Indianapolis Colts that can turn into a first-round pick thanks to the Carson Wentz trade.
The Eagles acquired Washington Football Team’s 2022 fifth-round pick in exchange for two of Philly’s Day 3 picks (No. 225 and No. 240) this year.
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, Nate Herbig, Sua Opeta, etc. The hope is that Howie Roseman can find more diamonds in the rough.
