A Busy Weekend, A Busy Week.

The Eagles Are Adding Depth at All Positions from Everywhere.

In the NFL, March is your time to spend money on talent. April is your time to draft it. You are filling positions of need not just for this season but for seasons to come, building for your future, especially when the season didn’t end the way that you wanted.


Last weekend, the Eagles earned one of the best grades in the NFL at the Draft by adding key talent. In the first round, they drafted Toledo cornerback Quinyon Mitchell. In the second round, they added another defensive back, Cooper DeJean. In the third round, they drafted Jalyx Hunt, an outside linebacker from Houston Christian. In the fourth round, they drafted Will Shipley from Clemson. In the fifth round, the Eagles added wide receiver Ainais Smith from Texas A&M, Jeremiah Trotter, Jr. from Clemson, and Guard Trevor Keegan from Michigan. Philadelphia’s draft selections ended in the sixth round, with wide receiver Johnny Wilson from Florida State and Guard/Center Dylan McMahon from NC State.

Right after the Draft, the Eagles added the lowest amount of UDFAs in recent memory. Still, they walked away signing Gottlieb Ayedze, OL, Maryland, Anim Dankwah, OT, Howard, Andre’ Sam, S, LSU, Kendall Milton, RB, Georgia, Gabe Hall, DT, Baylor, McCallen Castles, TE, Tennessee.

The week wasn’t done—it was time for some additional competition.


The Eagles rookie minicamp will also have ten additional invites Princeton QB Blake Stenstrom, Ohio State/IPP WR Praise Olatoke, Georgia Southern TE Jjay Mcafee, Wake Forest LB Jacob Roberts, Grambling State CB Cedric Anderson, Ferris State CB Shon Stephens, Clemson CB Sheridan Jones, Mercer CB Tavion McCarthy, UCLA S Kenny Churchwell III, IPP P Harry Mallinder.

The Eagles also invited veteran players for tryouts: WR Jakeem Grant, WR John Ross, DB Terrell Burgess, LB Shaq Quarterman, LB David Anenih, and TE Griffin Hebert.

The Eagles also signed Mekhi Becton from the Jets, adding depth to the offensive line. To accommodate these moves, the Eagles parted ways with DT Noah Elliss, WR Griffin Hebert, DB Tiawan Mullen, and C Lecitus Smith.

The Eagles have created competition at every position, which is precisely the way that they want it.
