Eagles 2024 NFL Draft picks

With the initial wave of free agency in the rear-view mirror, the next tentpole event for the league is the NFL Draft, which will be held April 25-27 in Detroit.

While front offices around the league are evaluating the talent in the 2024 class, let's evaluate what picks the Eagles have, how they got those eight selections, and some of the history behind the first three picks.

On Friday, March 9, the NFL awarded 34 compensatory picks league-wide and unveiled the entire round-by-round order for the 2024 NFL Draft.

UPDATE: The NFL announced on March 11 that a recalculated formula awarded the Cincinnati Bengals a third-round compensatory selection and a sixth-round compensatory selection. Originally, it was two sixth-round draft choices. The draft selections below are reflective of the update.

Eagles 2024 Draft Picks

First Round – No. 22 overall

Second Round – No. 50 overall (from NO)

Second Round – No. 53 overall

Fourth Round – No. 120 overall (from PIT)

Fifth Round – No. 161 overall (from TB)

Fifth Round – No. 171 overall (Compensatory Pick)

Fifth Round – No. 172 overall (Compensatory Pick)

Sixth Round – No. 210 overall (Compensatory Pick)

Own Picks

First Round – Pick No. 22 overall

This pick is based on the order of the 2023 NFL standings and playoff outcomes. Will the Eagles stay at No. 22? Howie Roseman has moved out of the team's original first-round draft slot in five of the last six years, including each of the past three (WR DeVonta Smith in 2021, DT Jordan Davis in 2022, and DT Jalen Carter last year).

Second Round – Pick No. 53 overall

This pick is based on the order of the 2023 NFL standings and playoff outcomes. Safe to say, the Eagles have had major success with the 53rd overall pick. Some of their selections include two-time Pro Bowl quarterback and NFL MVP runner-up Jalen Hurts (2020), Pro Bowl running back Miles Sanders (2019), and the franchise's all-time leading rusher in LeSean McCoy (2009)

Acquired Picks

Second Round – Pick No. 50 overall

This pick was acquired from the New Orleans Saints before the 2022 NFL Draft in a deal that saw eight picks exchanged between the two teams. The last time the Eagles had the 50th overall pick was in 1995 when they selected defensive back Bobby Taylor. During his nine seasons in Philadelphia, Taylor started 109 games and was selected to two NFL All-Pro teams.

Fourth Round – No. 120 overall

This pick was acquired in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers (agreed to terms on Saturday, March 16, pending a physical). The Eagles received this pick and Kenny Pickett, the first quarterback selected in the 2022 NFL Draft at No. 20 overall, in exchange for a 2024 third-round pick (No. 98 overall, a compensatory pick) and a pair of 2025 seventh-round draft picks.

Fifth Round – Pick No. 161 overall

This pick was acquired in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Eagles sent the Bucs the 191st selection (used on WR Trey Palmer) in last year's draft in exchange for a 2024 fifth-round pick.

Compensatory Picks

The Eagles were one of three teams to receive the maximum allotment of four compensatory picks due to the loss of free agents following the 2023 season, including a third-round selection (the highest possible).

Fifth Round – Pick No. 171 overall

For the departure of T Andre Dillard, who signed a three-year, $29 million contract with the Titans.

Fifth Round – Pick No. 172 overall

For the departure of G Isaac Seumalo, who signed a three-year, $24 million contract with the Steelers.

Sixth Round – Pick No. 210 overall

For the departure of LB T.J. Edwards, who signed a three-year, $19.5 million contract with the Bears.
