We’re in the sixth round of the NFL Draft and the Eagles continue to wheel and deal for value picks.

With the 188th overall selection, the Eagles drafted Stanford quarterback Tanner McKee. Two picks later, the team traded the 191st to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 2024 5th-round selection.

Get to know Tanner McKee

For McKee, many draft analysts had McKee going as high as the second round thanks to throwing for over 2,000 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. At 6’6″ McKee has the right size to be a big pocket passer quarterback. His velocity is solid and is a smart player but will need some seasoning before he sees an NFL field.

With trading their sixth-round pick, the Eagles have nine picks in the 2024 draft with three picks in the top 64 overall selections.

Following the McKee draft pick, the Eagles have just the 249th pick remaining in the draft.
