With two first round picks, the Philadelphia Eagles have the potential to continue remaking their offense in Thursday’s NFL Draft.
It would not surprise to see the Eagles opt for a third wide receiver first round selection in three seasons to pair with DeVonta Smith. With four picks in the first 83 selections, Philadelphia has plenty of options.
Here’s the Eagles’ picks, selections and grades for the 2022 NFL Draft.

1st Round, No. 13 overall (from Houston) | Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia
Instant grade: B-minus
Analysis: The Eagles trade up to grab Georgia’s disruptive defensive lineman. His athletic numbers are out of this world, and his first three steps were untouchable at times last year. He wasn’t a great pass rusher, though, and showed fatigue a little too easy at times.
TRADE: The Eagles traded the No. 15, No. 124, No. 162 and No. 166 picks to Houston for the No. 13 pick.
2nd Round, No. 51 overall Cameron Jurgens, C, Nebraska
Instant grade: B
Analysis: A mobile and long-armed center who is the prototypical modern center. Will he be able to block heavier, explosive defensive lineman?
3rd Round, No. 83 overall | Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia
Instant grade: A-plus
Analysis: Dean’s slide, according to reports, were due to a pectoral injury on his medical report. That aside, he was one of the top playmakers in this draft. Sideline-to-sideline player who loves to play physical and can cover backs and tight ends. Medicals aside, a top 15 player.
5th Round, No. 154 overall (from Washington) |
7th Round, No. 237 overall (from New Orleans) |
