Busy Day 3 ahead for Eagles

The Eagles are set to begin Day 3 of the NFL draft, and it should be a busy one. The Birds stockpiled picks in the fourth and fifth rounds by trading down three times last night.

The Eagles draft 105th, 121st, 122nd, and 125th in the fourth, 134th and 146th in the fifth, 200th in the sixth, and 243rd and 244th in the seventh. That’s nine picks, as many as the Eagles ended Thursday with, but not picks in places where one expects to find an immediate starter at corner, which remains a glaring issue.

Here is a look at the top players remaining on Paul Domowitch’s position-by-position draft board after the first two days of the draft. (Number before a player’s name is his rank overall at that position. The top 10 players were ranked at each position except fullback.)
