UPDATE [9:25 p.m.] – Announced by the sack master Trent Cole, the Eagles went offensive line with pick No. 65, taking Tyler Steen out of Alabama.
Then without any pause, Cole went right to 66, revealing that Illinois safety Sydney Brown will also be coming to Philly.
More on Steen HERE.
And Brown HERE.
UPDATE [9:09 p.m.] – The Eagles are moving back from 62 to 65 after a trade with the Texans. They're also getting picks 188 and 230, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

After three months of speculating about what the Philadelphia Eagles would do with their first two picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, we have an answer. A pair of Dawgs are now Eagles, as DT Jalen Carter and edge rusher Nolan Smith were selected at ninth and 30th overall, respectively.
Looking ahead, the Eagles currently have a pair of Day 2 picks. One is at the back end of Round 2, and the other is at the front end of Round 3.
|1||9||From Saints||Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia|
|1||30||Eagles' own pick||Nolan Smith, Edge, Georgia|
|2||62||Eagles' own pick|
|7||219||From Vikings (via Texans)|
|7||248||Eagles' own pick|
What will Howie Roseman do on Day 2? Offensive line? Safety? Linebacker? Trade up? Trade out? It's probably all on the table.
Here's a place for you to discuss the Day 2 action as it unravels. If you haven't already bookmarked our 2022 Eagles draft board, it's not too late, as we'll be updating that throughout the entire draft. Here are some other helpful links if you're playing catchup on draft season:
