7-9, 4th in NFC East

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles made a trade with the Vikings to move up in the fourth round and select San Diego State running back Donnel Pumphrey. The leading rusher in FBS history, Pumphrey (5-foot-9, 176 pounds) has good vision and burst and is effective in the pass game as well.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Eleven running backs went before him, but none was more productive than Donnel Pumphery, the all-time FBS rushing leader. He is the only player in FBS history with at least 5,000 career rush yards and 1,000 career receiving yards.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles have traded up and look to be targeting a running back. Best available is Donnel Pumphrey of San Diego State followed by Matthew Dayes of NC State.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Mack Hollins had just 16 catches as a senior after missing several games to injury, but he tallied 20 touchdowns and averaged 20.6 yards per catch in his college career. He also racked up 24 special-teams tackles.

Eagles give Wentz a big target

Mack Hollins, who is coming off a season-ending broken collarbone injury, is a former walk-on with the frame, length and top-end speed to stretch the field. A special-teams captain throughout his college career, he projects as a core special-teams' player at the next level.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles give Carson Wentz North Carolina receiver Mack Hollins with their first pick in the fourth round. At 6-foot-4, 221 pounds, he has ideal size and possesses 4.53-40 speed. Good special teams player, too.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles, who have two picks in the fourth round, will be looking to take advantage of a running back class that GM Howie Roseman called "historic" for its depth. Donnel Pumphrey of San Diego State, BYU's Jamaal Williams and Marlon Mack of South Florida are ESPN's best available.

The Sidney Jones injury allowed the Eagles to walk away from the first three rounds with two top-15 talents.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Nobody got his hands on the football more often than Rasul Douglas in 2016, as he tied for the NCAA lead in interceptions (eight) and added eight more passes defensed.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Good value for the Eagles to draft CB Rasul Douglas in the third round. He has the frame (6-foot-2, 209 pounds) and the length to play press-man. Plus, he can can find the ball. Aggressive in coverage. Physical vs. the run game.

Eagles pick CB Rasul Douglas at No. 99

Philadelphia added its second straight cornerback, taking the West Virginia product, a longer press corner who shows excellent range and the physicality to defend the run.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles follow up the Sidney Jones pick with another corner, West Virginia's Rasul Douglas. At 6-foot-2 and 209 pounds, Douglas has good length and excels at winning 50-50 balls. He had eight interceptions last season.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

Eagles third-round pick fast approaching, and there are some quality options on the board including DB Desmond King, RB Samaje Perine, RB Donnel Pumphrey and CB Rasul Douglas.

Eagles draft Sidney Jones despite Achilles injury

The Eagles on Friday drafted Washington cornerback Sidney Jones with the 43rd overall pick even though he is recovering from a torn Achilles tendon and isn't expected to play until October.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Washington is the first school to have three defensive backs taken in the 2nd round of the same draft in the common draft era (Kevin King - Packers; Budda Baker - Cardinals; Sidney Jones - Eagles)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Sidney Jones was the third member of the Huskies' secondary to be drafted in Round 2, though he likely would have gone ahead of Kevin King and Budda Baker had he not torn his Achilles at his pro day in March.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

CB Sidney Jones, just drafted by the Eagles, told me recently that he would be back on the field in six months. Jones suffered an Achilles injury during his pro day workout, but he has first round talent. Press-man ability, ball skills and he is going to challenge wide receivers. Super competitive defensive back.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles select Washington cornerback Sidney Jones with their second-round pick. Jones was under consideration at 14 before rupturing his Achilles at his pro day. This is a gamble, but if Jones makes a full recovery he could be an absolute steal.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Sidney Jones for the Eagles is another first-round value in the second round. Should recover fully from Achilles injury and could be a long-term answer in the secondary. Fans may have to wait until 2018 to see him play, though. Philly fans good with that?

Eagles can count on Sidney Jones

Big plays may not be the hallmark of the Eagles' second-round pick, but according to Mel Kiper Jr., the Washington CB is a solid, steady performer.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles need to attack the corner position soon. Florida's Quincy Wilson is the top available CB, per ESPN, and the injured Sidney Jones could be a steal if he fully recovers from the ruptured Achilles. Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara is another value pick that would address a need.
