Philadelphia Eagles: Draft weekend running commentary


For all things NFL draft as they pertain to the Philadelphia Eagles, keep it locked to cover32’s running commentary of the three-day event. We’ll be posting tweets, pictures and everything in between to keep you up to speed on everything Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman are up to this weekend.

Day 3

8:05 p.m.: Add another wideout to the list. LSU’s Kadron Boone.

8:00 p.m.: Add another running back to the list. Missouri’s Henry Josey.

7:59 p.m.: Versatility is key for Chip. Oregon State G/C Josh Andrews has it.

7:56 p.m.: The Eagles continue to add defensive players, this time adding Alabama corner John Fulton.

7:43 p.m.: The Eagles have brought in competition for Alex Henery.

Nothing like the kicking competition!

7:37 p.m.: Eagles continue to add depth, this time at tight end with Florida’s Trey Burton.

7:27 p.m.: The Eagles have signed their first batch of undrafted free agents

More to come, for sure.

5:54 p.m.: The Eagles took Wisconsin NT Beau Allen with the No. 224 pick in the NFL Draft. Philadelphia is now done with their selections.

4:44 p.m.: Florida State ILB Christian Jones is still on the board. Some had him pegged as a second or third round pick. Would be excellent value for the Eagles at No. 224.

3:20 p.m.: See how Twitter reacted to the selection of Stanford S Ed Reynolds.

3:06 p.m.: The Eagles selected Stanford S Ed Reynolds with the No. 162 pick in the draft.

2:50 p.m.: Twitter reacts to the Eagles’ selection of Taylor Hart.

2:12 p.m.: The Eagles took Oregon DE Taylor Hart to kick off the fifth round (No. 141 overall). That’s the second Duck (Josh Huff is the other) that Kelly has drafted this year.

1:09 p.m.: Here’s the official compensation for the Bryce Brown trade.

I’d say the Eagles win this one.

12:56 p.m.: Of course the guy who works for the Eagles got the trade details wrong. Here they are though.

Brown now has the shot he didn’t in Philadelphia.

12:52 p.m.: It’s two picks from the Bills, apparently.

Good value for Brown, who wasn’t as versatile as Kelly would have liked.

12:50 p.m.: According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (on TV), the Eagles will be getting a conditional fourth round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, which could turn in to a third rounder.

12:48 p.m.: The Eagles have traded running back Bryce Brown to the Bills.

More as it develops.

12:34 p.m.: Jaylen Watkins played high school ball with current Eagles’ safety Nate Allen. Pretty cool, and here’s to hoping they can rekindle that chemistry in the secondary.

12:09 p.m.: The Eagles take Florida CB Jaylen Watkins at pick No. 101. Had met with him, as previous experience at safety too.

11:57 a.m.: The Eagles will have the first pick of the 4th round. They’ll have their pick of the litter, but some names to keep an eye on are Lindenwood CB Pierre Desir, Stanford ILB Shane Skov and Montana OLB Jordan Trip..
