With the 2019 NFL Draft less than two weeks away, we put the Philadelphia Eagles on the clock:

2018 Record: 9-7; Finished: 2nd In the NFC East

General Manager/Executive VP: Howie Roseman (10th Year/20th with team), Head Coach: Doug Pederson (4th Year), Offensive Coordinator: Mike Groh (2nd Year/3rd Year with team), Defensive Coordinator: Jim Schwartz (4th Year)

Offense Rankings: No. 14 Overall, No. 18 Scoring, No. 7 Passing, No. 28 Rushing

In their Super Bowl season, the Philadelphia Eagles had one of the league’s best offenses, third in the NFL in scoring at 28.6 points per game, so 2018 was a clear step back. While the passing game took a jump from 13th overall, the rushing attack took a major tumble. A season after they finished third overall and averaged 4.5 yards per carry with 19 big runs, they averaged just 3.9 yards a pop with only seven big runs in 2018.  

Defense Rankings: No. 23 Overall, No. 12 Scoring, No. 30 Passing, No. 7 Rushing

After finishing fourth in total and scoring defense in 2017, there was an even bigger regression on this side of the ball. Even the run D, which was seventh, dropped six slot from first in the NFL. So, they went from the best at stopping the run to just really good, while the pass defense went from average (17th) to among the worst in the league.

2019 Picks: The Eagles gave up their 2018 first-round pick and traded it along with a fourth-round pick to the Baltimore Ravens for their second- and fourth-round selections in last year’s draft, as well as Baltimore’s second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, which gives the Eagles two picks in round number two. It’s the first time that Philadelphia has three picks in the top 60 since 2012. They still only have two Day 2 selections, as Philly shipped their third rounder to the Detroit Lions for wide out Golden Tate during the 2018 season. They were awarded a compensatory pick in the fourth round, giving them two picks in the opening round of Day 3. The Eagles also received a compensatory sixth rounder, which they used to acquire DeSean Jackson. In addition, they gave up their seventh-round pick to the New England Patriots in order to move up 17 slots in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft to select offensive tackle Jordan Mailata.

Round 1, Selection 25

Round 2, Selection 53 (from Baltimore)

Round 2, Selection 57

Round 4, Selection 127

Round 4, Selection 138

Round 5, Selection 163

Round 6, Selection 197
