Eagles active on Draft Day

The Philadelphia Eagles traded their 1st round pick (19th overall) to the Carolina Panthers for their 2nd and 4th round picks in this year’s draft as well as the Panthers 1st round pick in next year’s draft. My opinion – I think that once the two offensive tackles went at 14 and 15, there were no more players left that the Birds wanted to spend a 1st round pick on. So, they now have twelve…TWELVE! picks remaining in this draft. The one thing that I find VERY interesting with this move is the 1st round pick from the Panthers in next year’s draft because let’s face it, the Panthers should, uh, SUCK this year!!!

The Eagles, as of now, will make the 43rd and 49th overall picks in the second round. I am absolutely GLUED to the TV!!

UPDATE (6:52 PM) – The Eagles have traded a 4th round pick (#115 overall) to the Miami Dolphins for RB Lorenzo Booker. The first thing that I thought of was, “Has there even been an Eagle with the first name Lorenzo?”

I do not know too much about Booker, but as Tommy Lawlor mentioned on our show last week, is this the end for Ryan Moats?

UPDATE (7:35 PM) – OK, are the Eagles going to make a frigging pick today? The Eagles traded their 2nd round pick obtained from the Panthers, as well as a 5th rounder, to the Vikings for their second round pick (47th overall) and an additional 4th round pick. It has been hard to keep up, but I think I finally figured it out. The Eagles currently have every single draft pick in the 4th round tomorrow!!!

UPDATE (7:45 PM) – Well, the pick is in. With the 47th pick, the Eagles have selected Trevor Laws, DT from Notre Dame.  Another year, another D-line pick from Andy Reid.  WHAT ABOUT OFFENSIVE TACKLE? WHAT ABOUT WIDE RECEIVER?  Well, at least we got a solid, high-character kid from Notre Dame.

UPDATE (7:50 PM) – With their original pick in the second round (49th overall), the Eagles have selected DeSean Jackson!!  HOT DAMN!!!  A speed WR!! A playmaker for McNabb!!  I cannot stop using exclamation points!!
