No, you weren’t dreaming. The Eagles landed athletic specimen Jordan Davis and star WR A.J. Brown yesterday. With both being the result of trades, the Eagles are now strapped for picks going into day two. With only two picks (maybe) tonight, where do they go?

Pick 51 – Tariq Woolen – CB – UTSA

The Eagles have left CB2 vacant all offseason, unless they want Tay Gowan or Zech McPhearson to battle for that spot. Woolen is yet another athletic specimen that has all the tools to be a successful boundary corner and would have the perfect mentor in Darius Slay.

TRADE: Eagles trade Andre Dillard. Jaguars trade #70. Jags go defense in first three picks, get their tackle with their fourth in the mold of a former Doug Pederson LT.

Pick 70 – Troy Andersen – LB – Montana State

Furthering the solidification of the defense, the Eagles pounce on a LB who can run some plays on offense if needed. Andersen can roam all over the field for the Eagles and help defend every skill position.

Pick 83 – Cameron Jergens – IOL – Nebraska

The first offensive pick (if you don’t count #18 being traded for offense) is in the trenches. Jergens is heavily favored to be selected by the Eagles at 51, so Philadelphia gets lucky and still gets their guy after passing on him twice. Jergens is extremely athletic and can be the eventual Jason Kelce replacement.
