With the NFL holding its draft Thursday night in Kansas City, speculation and rumors are running rampant.
The Eagles have gone after disgruntled players and acquired them.
Arizona Cardinal safety Budda Baker has been linked to getting traded to the Birds, and draft day is when those deals have been made.
Defense will also be key when the Eagles start picking Thursday night.
Eagles pick 10th, 30th in the 1st round, 62nd overall in the 2nd round, 94th pick overall in 3rd round, 219th in the 7th round and 248th in the 7th round.
Fans are still clamoring for the Eagles to pick Texas running back Bijan Robinson with the 10th selection, if he’s still on the table.
The Eagles have been the top option for Baker since it was announced that he requested a trade.
And the Birds have a need for Baker after losing CJ Gardner-Johnson to the Detroit Lions in free agency.
