The Eagles have traded out of the third round, sending the 91st overall pick to the Seattle Seahawks, continuing a chain of events that started with them dealing the 85th overall pick to the New York Giants earlier this morning.

In exchange for the 85th pick, they received the Giants' third-round pick -- 91st overall -- and a fifth-round selection, the 164th overall pick. The Seahawks gave the Eagles the first pick in the fifth round -- 137 overall -- and a seventh-round selection -- 213 overall -- in this year's draft and a third-round selection in next year's draft.

The Eagles now have six fifth-round picks in this year's draft. They do not have a fourth-round selection.

Don't be surprised if they use their extra third-round pick in next year's draft to make a trade with Denver for tight end Tony Scheffler. The teams have talked about a deal and the Eagles told the Broncos they would be interested depending on what they do in this draft.
