Eagles trade five picks, move to No. 2

Doug Pedersen

Another big shakeup has happened. It was only a few days ago that the Los Angeles Rams sent a boatload of pick to Tennesse for the No. 1 overall pick. Now the Cleveland Browns have traded out of the No. 2 spot, acquiring five picks, from the Philadelphia Eagles for it. The Browns get the No. 8 pick in the draft, their third and fourth round picks this year as well as a first rounder next year and a second round pick in 2018.

Even with the free agent addition of Robert Griffin III earlier in the offseason the Browns were still said to be interested in drafting a quarterback with the second overall pick. The beauty is with the eighth overall pick, San Diego, Dallas, Jacksonville and Baltimore unlikely to draft quarterbacks, the Browns could still get a quarterback they want with the 8th pick. The 49ers could go for a quarterback, but are still very unlikely too.

The Rams seem set to take a quarterback with the first overall pick. The Eagles perhaps are looking to draft the other — either Jared Goff or Carson Wentz. But they could also be looking to draft the very explosive Ezekiel Elliott. Doug Pedersen ran an effective offense with Jamaal Charles leading the way in Kansas City prior to taking the head coaching job in Philadelphia.

The following two tabs change content below.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
