The Eagles traded a few spots back on Friday night, from No. 62 to No. 65, and picked up two more selections on Saturday.
- Round 6 - No. 188 (from Texans
- Round 7 - No. 211 (from Vikings - via Texans)
- Round 7 - No. 230 (from Texans)
- Round 7 - No. 250
Howie Roseman said they relied on some luck to trade back and still get the two guys they wanted, but it worked out, and they nabbed OL Tyler Steen at No. 65 and safety Sydney Brown at No. 66.
Stay tuned to Bleeding Green Nation for the latest updates regarding Eagles moves and others made around the league.
[1:08 PM]: The teams of former Eagles coaches picked back-to-back, with Doug Pederson’s Dolphins taking Florida LB Ventrell Miller at No. 121, and Jonathan Gannon’s Cardinals picking UCLA guard Jon Gaines II at No. 122.
[12:50 PM]: The Eagles traded up to pick ANOTHER player out of Georgia, CB Kelee Ringo, at No. 105. It’s a funny pick, because of course Howie got another Bulldog, but it’s also a really good pick.
The only other NFC East to pick so far in Round 4, was the Commanders at No. 118, and they selected Utah, guard Braeden Daniels.
[11:57 AM]: THE CLOCK HASN’T EVEN STARTED YET! There have already been three trades to set up for the first few picks of Round 4, including THE EAGLES TRADING UP TO NO. 105!
Round will go: Saints (via Bears) at No. 103, Raiders (via Texans) at No. 104 , and then the Eagles at No. 105 (via Texans).
