This post will have constant updates regarding draft rumors, picks, trades, hot takes, and more, while also serving as an open thread for discussion in the comments. The Philadelphia Eagles have two picks Thursday night, first at No. 15 and then No. 18, but it wouldn’t be surprising for Howie Roseman and Co. to make a move (or two).

Stay tuned to Bleeding Green Nation for the latest updates regarding Eagles moves and others made around the league.
[10:58 PM]: Doug Pederson and the Jaguars just traded back into the first round.
The Bucs trade: Pick 27— Field Yates (@FieldYates) April 29, 2022
The Jaguars trade: 33, 106, 180
There have already been so many trades, including the Bills moving up to get CB Kaiir Elam (Florida) at No. 23. The Cowboys then took an offensive tackle, Tyler Smith out of Tulsa, at No. 24 followed by Tyler Linderbaum (C - Iowa) to Ravens. The Jets traded up to No. 26 to pick EDGE Jermaine Johnson II (Florida State).
[10:35 PM]: Well that was fun! After the Eagles made the trade for A.J. Brown, the Titans used the No. 18 pick on Treylon Burke (WR - Arkansas), followed by Trevor Penning (OT - Northern Iowa) to the Saints, Kenny Pickett (QB - Pitt) to the Steelers, Trent McDuffie (CB - Washington) to the Chiefs, and the first inside linebacker off the board, Quay Walker (Georgia) to the Packers at No. 22.
[10:01 PM]: THE EAGLES MADE ANOTHER TRADE! Howie Roseman pulled off a BIG move with the Titans, giving Tennessee the No. 18 and No. 101 picks and bringing wide receiver A.J. FREAKING BROWN to Philly. HE DID IT! Howie actually got the Eagles a big WR with experience and production!
[9:52 PM]: Things sure got interesting quickly — which seems appropriate from an offseason that has already been pretty crazy.
[9:50 PM] The Eagles moved up two spot to take incredibly athlete DT Jordan Davis out of Georgia.

[9:29]: THE EAGLES TRADE UP TO NO. 13! this is not a drill! AND they keep their second first round pick at No. 18.
There was a run on receivers prompting the Eagles move, with the Jets taking Garrett Wilson, the Saints trading up for Chris Olave, and the Lions trading up for Jameson Williams.
[9:04 PM]: The first wide receiver came off the board at No. 8, with the Atlanta Falcons drafting Drake London out of USC.
[8:57 PM]: The Giants had another Top 10 pick and added some much needed help along their offensive line, selecting OT Evan Neal out of Alabama at No. 7. Two good picks for New York to start the weekend... a good reminder that Dave Gettleman isn’t the GM anymore.
[8:52 PM]: The first offensive player finally gets picked at No. 6. NC State OT Ikem Ekwonu is headed to Carolina.
[8:41 PM]: Ugh, I hate when the Giants make good decisions. At No. 5, they didn’t overthink it, and took EDGE Kayvon Thibodeaux out of Oregon. Five defensive players to open the draft for the first time in over 30 years.
[8:37 PM]: The Jets took about eight minutes to make their pick at No. 4, selecting CB Sauce Gardner out of Cincinnati.
[8:29 pm]: The first cornerback comes off the board at No. 3, with the Houston Texans drafting Derek Stingley Jr. out of LSU.
[8:24 PM]: As expected, EDGE Aidan Hutchinson out of Michigan was the next man up as the Detroit Lions’ pick at No. 2.
[8:20 PM]: Georgia EDGE Travon Walker goes No. 1 overall and is headed to Jacksonville.
[8:10 PM]: HERE WE GOOOOOOOO! The Jaguars, Doug Pederson’s new team, are officially on the clock.
