Here’s a breakdown of their Saturday moves:
In Round 4, the Eagles first selected Clemson safety K'Von Wallace with the 127th selection. For more on that pick and how he could be a solution for the Eagles at safety, check our our draft grade.
The Eagles originally held the final two picks of the 4th round, 145th and 146th. They selected Auburn tackle Jack Driscoll with the 145th pick ... and then traded the 146th to grab the 164th pick in this year's draft and a 2021 fifth rounder.
That's not the weird part. It's that they traded with, um, the Dallas Cowboys, that makes it weird. Dallas took Wisconsin center Tyler Biadasz with the pick.
In Round 5, the Eagles traded the 164th pick to Miami in exchange for the 173rd pick and the 227th pick.
With the 168th pick, the Eagles selected wide receiver John Hightower from Boise State.
They then traded the 173rd and 227th picks to Chicago in exchange for the 196th, 200th and 233rd picks.
The big move of the day came during the fifth round, when the Eagles acquired WR Marquise Goodwin from the 49ers while also flipping 6th round picks. That means the Eagles sent the 190th overall selection to San Francisco in exchange for the 210th selection.
With the 196th pick, the Eagles selected Temple linebacker Shaun Bradley.
With the 200th pick, the Eagles selected Southern Mississippi wide receiver Quez Watkins.
With the 210th pick, the Eagles selected Prince Tega Wanogho, a tackle from Auburn. He has quite the interesting backstory.
With the 233rd pick, their final selection, the Eagles selected Casey Toohill, a linebacker from Stanford.
