Displeased with his team's decision to trade up for fellow quarterback Carson Wentz, the 28-year-old Bradford is skipping voluntary activities while reportedly asking for a trade. Denver was mentioned as a possible destination prior to the draft, but any deal could prove difficult after Bradford signed a two-year, $36 million extension during the offseason. Furthermore, the Broncos selected QB Paxton Lynch in the first round, significantly decreasing the odds that the team would have interest in Bradford. Though seemingly still viewed as the likely starter, Bradford finds himself facing significant pressure, with the Eagles having also signed Chase Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract in March. With such a crowd in the team's quarterback room, Bradford feels that he's merely biding time in Philadelphia while the team tries to replace him. Although he's correct, it's probably in his best interest to make peace with the unusual situation.
The Philadelphia Eagles selected Walker in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 251st overall.
Walker is a light and light-footed linebacker who stands out for his passing-down potential, thanks in particular to a pro day showing where he ran a 4.6 40 and showed strong jump and agility numbers. Such traits also translate well to special teams.
The Philadelphia Eagles selected Jalen Mills in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 233rd overall.
Mills is a corner/safety tweener who was generally expected to go in the third or fourth round. Assuming his health isn't too much of a red flag, this pick could yield a nice bargain for Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Eagles selected Countess in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 196th overall.
Countess began his career at Michigan before finishing out at Auburn as a graduate transfer. He's on the smaller side for a defensive back, but the Eagles needed to add depth at corner. Countess will likely have to earn his way onto the 53-man roster by producing on special teams.
The Philadelphia Eagles selected Wendell Smallwood in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 153rd overall.
This is why you wait to draft running backs. Halfway through the fifth round, the Eagles get themselves the Big 12's leading rusher from last year, yet Smallwood also possesses standout pass-catching ability. At 5-foot-10, 208 pounds, Smallwood might not be an obvious feature back candidate, but we suspect he'll force his way into a meaningful change-of-pace role within his first couple years in the league. There's no obvious distinction to make between Smallwood and NFL runners like Gio Bernard and James White. With 4.47 speed and a high-motor running style, Smallwood will be tough to keep off the field, especially if the Eagles get rid of one or both of Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles.
