Philadelphia Eagles Day 3 2014 NFL Draft Primer

The Philadelphia Eagles are about to enter the home stretch in the 2014 NFL draft, and they’re doing it in style. Thanks to a trade, the Birds will kick off Day 3 with the first pick, No. 101 overall—assuming they keep it, that is.

General manager Howie Roseman has been putting in work, moving the team up and down the board with three trades already.

On Day 1, it was adding a third-round pick from the Cleveland Browns to move down four spots, where the Eagles selected outside linebacker Marcus Smith. On Day 2, it was sending a fourth-round pick to the Tennessee Titans to move up 12 spots and grab wide receiver Jordan Matthews. Roseman then traded the spare third from Cleveland to the Houston Texans for their Round 4 and 5 selections.

Now it’s time for Chip Kelly to round out his second draft class as head coach of the Eagles. He’s already filled two needs convincingly—pass-rusher with Smith and wide receiver with Matthews and third-round pick Josh Huff.

Ahead, we explore Philadelphia’s remaining needs and potential targets. I look at what the experts are saying, make a few predictions of my own and conclude with one last mock draft.
