Open Thread: NFL Draft, Day 3
Last day of the draft. How quickly it goes.
The Eagles have four picks in rounds 4-7:
Round 4 (101)
Round 5 (141)
Round 5 (162)
Round 7 (224)
We’ll drop in with comments all day long. The fun begins at noon.
1:09 – Apologies for the lack of updates. It’s been a busy day here! The Eagles took DB Jaylen Watkins in the fourth round. Chip Kelly raved about Watkins’ football IQ. He could see time at cornerback or safety, although the guess here is safety is more likely. Watkins ran a 4.41 at the combine. If he were healthy, he said he would have had the fastest time of any cornerback.
Meanwhile, the Eagles have traded RB Bryce Brown to the Bills. They move up in the seventh round this year and get a conditional third or fourth round pick. That’s the pick the Bills acquired from the 49ers in the Stevie Johnson trade.
