Eagles Trade To #2 Overall in 2016 Draft
The NFL draft order has changed once again in the run up to the NFL draft set to take place a little over a week from now. ESPN is reporting that the Cleveland Browns have traded the #2 pick in this years draft to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles send their first round pick (#8 overall), third and fourth round picks in 2016 as well as their 2017 1st round pick and their 2018 2nd round selection to the Browns. The Eagles also received the Browns 4th rounder in 2017.
After the Los Angeles Rams moved up to #1 overall by virtue of trading with the Tennessee Titans, many thought the "other" quarterback between high profile choices Carson Wentz (NDSU) and Jared Goff (Cal) would be selected by Cleveland. Now it appears that won't be the case.
NFLDraftScout.com reports that the Eagles biggest needs are offensive linemen, defensive end, and cornerback. The report actually specifically mentions how despite Chase Daniel's extension, Sam Bradford is the quarterback of choice in Philly.
"Sam Bradford is No. 1, Chase Daniel is No. 2 and we are working on No. 3," Head Coach Doug Pederson said.
Highly doubtful that a "third" quarterback would be taken at #2 overall in this years draft.
The NFL draft starts up on April 28th and runs through the 30th at Chicago's Auditorium Theatre.
