You like the headline? I thought it was clever.

The Eagles are getting two comp picks in next month’s draft:

Two sixth-rounders. Better than nothing. Jason Kelce was a sixth-rounder, so sometimes you stumble into a Pro Bowler in a random kind of way.

One of these comp picks is a result of Jordan Howard hitting free agency, and the other is via Kamu Grugier-Hill. (edit- I think this was Ronald Darby)

With these selections added, their draft list now looks like this:

  • first round: 6th overall
  • second round: 38th overall
  • third round: 70th overall, 84th overall (from the Wentz trade)
  • fourth round: none (shipped to Cleveland in the Genard Avery trade)
  • fifth round: natural pick, another pick from Cowboys (for last year’s trade)
  • sixth round: natural pick, 224th overall, 225th overall (the comp picks)
  • seventh round: natural pick

That’s not bad. Ten picks. They might be able to package one or more of those and move around the board. Could also trade back out of #6 to add another selection.

The Eagles have some options here, let’s just hope Howie doesn’t screw it up.
