The Eagles will trade out of their No. 70 overall selection, dealing the choice to the Panthers. Carolina possessed three third-round choices; the team will begin that itinerary a bit early.
Carolina will climb from No. 73 to 70 and give Philadelphia a sixth-round pick (No. 191) to do so. With the pick, the Panthers are taking BYU tackle Brady Christensen.
The 24-year-old blocker played three seasons with the Cougars, blocking for No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson. This marks the Panthers’ second straight offensive pick, after the franchise began its Matt Rhule era with a slew of defensive selections. Christensen will follow Terrace Marshall Jr. to Charlotte.
Russell Okung remains a free agent, but this marks the Panthers’ second Day 2 tackle pick in three years. In 2019, the franchise selected Greg Little. Carolina used its franchise tag on Taylor Moton but will throw Christensen into its tackle mix alongside Little. Interestingly, Scouts Inc. viewed Christensen as a seventh-round-level talent. Rhule and GM Scott Fitterer clearly disagree.

Why are the Eagles still accumulating late round picks ? They now have 4 @ 6th Round picks and 3 @ 7th round picks. Hopefully they have someone who will trade them for 2022 picks .
Correction 2 @7th round picks
They’re in a rebuild, so having extra camp bodies couldn’t hurt.
When you have 11 picks you trade UP not down. Donohoe clearly was pissed about it.
Hopefully packages some of those late picks up and grabs one of the CBs at the top of the fourth. Also, no talk iof Ertz in a while, maybe there’s a deal being kicked around that brings a CB back.
Howie has clearly reverted to form by reaching for an oft-injured player and trading down for a project instead of taking the safer logical choice.
Lmao did you see the run on DB in the end of the 3rd? Howie clearly not concerned about adding a corner.
Nice job Howie don’t go get the guy that’s ranked 13th at his position go get the guy that’s ranked 38th and 300 and some plus overall. Get the guy that you could sign as a is it post draft free agent
