Eagles Draft Thread: Day 3
The NFL draft is over. Below is what happened on Saturday.
6:04: Here’s who the Eagles ended up with:
Round 1 (20): WR Nelson Agholor
Round 2 (47): CB Eric Rowe
Round 3 (84): LB Jordan Hicks
Round 6 (191): CB JaCorey Shepherd
Round 6 (196): CB Randall Evans
Round 7 (237): DE Brian Mihalik
6:02: The Eagles use their final pick on Boston College defensive end Brian Mihalik. He’s 6-9/302 and had 3.5 sacks last season.
4:26: The Eagles took Kansas State DB Randall Evans with the 196th pick. More on both the DBs here.
4:05: Eagles take Kansas CB JaCorey Shepherd (5-11/199). First-team All-Big 12 last season. Started college career as WR. Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network called him a smooth athlete and an instinctive player.
3:30: Interesting note on talented Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu.
Doubtful, been told he needed multiple surgeries to fix the knee. Might go Undrafted https://t.co/Lf5yMzgeZS

Wonder if Chip Kelly tries to grab him as an undrafted free agent if so.
2:27: Brett Hundley lasted until pick 147. The Packers traded up in the fifth round to select the UCLA quarterback.
12:42: The Eagles have made a trade. They gave the Lions a fourth-round pick (No. 113) for Detroit’s third-round pick in 2016. The Birds are not scheduled to pick again until the sixth round (No. 191). We’ll see if the Eagles trade any players to get an earlier pick.
12:36: Pittsburgh offensive tackle T.J. Clemmings finally goes off the board to the Vikings.
12:34: Three picks until the Eagles are up. My guess (Sheil) is Penn State safety Adrian Amos.
12:22 p.m.: There’s a quarterback off the board. Bryce Petty goes to the Jets.
12:16 p.m.: One potential Eagles target off the board. The Panthers moved up to take Oklahoma offensive tackle Daryl Williams.
