The birds have swapped first round picks with the Browns as well as giving them this years’ third and fourth round pick, 2017’s first round pick and 2018’s second round pick in return for the second overall pick and the Browns fourth-round pick next year.
#Eagles were the most aggressive team trying to move up to No. 2 after trying to move up to No. 1. A week before the draft, fireworks.

The Eagles have put all the chips on the table and it seems an awful lot to trade away for a player who isn’t a Quarterback..but the Eagles now be guaranteed to have a shot at two of the three top QB prospects in this years draft as well as players like Jalen Ramsey and Laremy Tunsil. The rollercoaster ride starts now!
