Countdown To The Draft: 7 Days


The clock is ticking, Eagles fans.

On April 30th, the NFL Draft will kick off from Chicago, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announces the latest class of NFL talent. To make sure that you're all set for when the Eagles are on the clock for the first time, we're counting down each day with look at each number from 100-1 and the significance that the number holds in Eagles history.

Without further ado, let's continue the countdown…


The last time the Eagles held the seventh overall pick was the 1995 NFL Draft.

With the pick, the Eagles selected Boston College defensive end Mike Mamula. That same draft, the Eagles selected Bobby Taylor and Barrett Brooks in the second and third round.


First Eagle To Wear No. 7: WB-T Dick Frahm (1935)

Current Eagle To Wear No. 7: QB Sam Bradford (2015-present)

QB Ron Jaworski



A second-round pick of the Los Angeles Rams in 1973 out of Youngstown State, Jaworski  was traded to the Eagles in 1977. After Dick Vermeil named him the starter, "Jaws" led the Eagles to 20 wins during his second and third seasons in an Eagles uniform. In 1980, he made his first Pro B owl, passing for 3,529 yards, 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Of course, the Eagles made their first ever Super Bowl appearance that year, falling to the Oakland Raiders. In that game, Jaworski threw a touchdown pass to tight end Keith Krepfle

Jaworski remained the starting quarterback through 1986 and ranks second all-time in franchise history in wins (69), passing yards (26,963) and touchdowns (175). Inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame in 1992, Jaworski has had a very successful career as an analyst for both ESPN and NFL Films.
