Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Matt Tobin had something of an uphill climb to just to make the roster this season, and somehow the Eagles were able to trade him along with a seventh-round pick in 2018 to Seattle for the Seahawks' fifth-round pick in 2018.
Tobin spent four seasons in Philadelphia, playing in 42 games (and starting 21) at both guard and tackle during his tenure here. This trade is likely in response to the Seahawks losing starting left tackle George Fant for the season with a torn ACL.
The Eagles have now made five trades that affect their draft picks in 2018. Here's an updated look at their 2018 picks:
