What a Thursday night for the Eagles! Howie Roseman had a near flawless draft as he took who many think is the best player in the draft, Jalen Carter. Roseman was able to trade up 1 pick, giving up a 4th rounder for next season, to acquire the Georgia Bulldog. But Howie wasnt done. The Eagles also owned the #30 pick in the draft, their own, and Howie grabbed ANOTHER Georgia Bulldog as edge rusher Nolan Smith fell to them.
So how will Howie Roseman and the Eagles front office follow up their incredible first round? The Eagles will have two picks on Friday. Their first will come with the 62nd overall pick in round 2. Their next pick will be just a few picks later when they draft at 66 after an NFL investigation deemed that the Arizona Cardinals tampered in the hiring of Jonathan Gannon.
