Day 1 – Eagles Get Bigger and Better

The Eagles went into the first round with picks 15 and 18. They didn’t select at either spot, something a few people correctly predicted. However, no one saw tonight’s moves coming.

The Eagles didn’t shock anyone when they jumped up to pick 13 and took Georgia DT Jordan Davis. They’ve made no secret about how much they like him.

The shocker came at pick 18. The Eagles dealt that and a third rounder to the Titans…for WR A.J. Brown. Wow. Instead of adding a talented rookie, they went and got a proven stud. I love this move. Brown is one of my favorite NFL players and is a perfect complement to the Eagles smallish set of receivers.

Brown was set to become a free agent after the year. The Eagles just signed him to a 4-year extension so he and DeVonta Smith will form the best duo of receivers that the Eagles have had in a while. Or maybe ever.

What a night.

Much more to come…
