The Eagles currently have eight picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.

We're far away from the 2018 NFL Draft, but the Eagles have now made six trades that affect their picks next year. The first was the trade to move up to the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, where the Eagles selected Carson Wentz. The Eagles will be without their second-round pick in 2018, as that is owned by the Cleveland Browns.

The next trade was, of course, the deal that sent Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings, netting the Eagles a fourth-round pick, followed by the trade of Eric Rowe to the Patriots, which will become either a third- or fourth round pick.

The Eagles will also be without their third round pick, which they traded along with Jordan Matthews for cornerback Ronald Darby.

In a smaller deal, the Eagles traded Matt Tobin along with a 2018 seventh-round pick to Seattle for the Seahawks' fifth-round pick in 2018.

And finally, the Eagles traded a fourth round pick to the Dolphins for RB Jay Ajayi.

Here is a look at the Eagles' 2018 draft picks, which we'll update anytime it changes:

Prior to the trade with the Dolphins for Jay Ajayi, the Eagles owned three fourth round picks. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the fourth round pick that will go to the Dolphins will be the second in order of those three picks, however it plays out.

To recap, the three fourth round picks the Eagles hold are:

  1. Their own fourth round pick.
  2. The fourth round pick acquired from the Patriots for Eric Rowe. To note, that pick will become a third-round pick if Rowe plays in at least 50 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps either in 2017. The Eagles will keep this pick if indeed it becomes a third round pick, which is unlikely.
  3. The fourth round pick acquired from the Vikings for Sam Bradford.
