6:24 pm
season the biggest ones today the eagles traded with cleveland browns for second pick in the draft and that's next thursday. the only question is which quarterback of the top two will be there at number two? the thought now is carson wentz will be there number two after the rams make the first pick. right now belief is jared goff will go number one to rams and wentz would please the eagles. here is the trade. eagles get number two pick this year in the first draft and then fourth round pick next year. and then what they give up is spread out over three drafts. eagles give up eighth pick this year flip flop along with third and fourth round pick and next year eagles gave number one pick and in 2018 a second round pick. sam brad ford will be starter this season there is risk with first round picks and harry roseman broke it down for me. >> you look at first round picks historically 40% of first round picks found in every position and when you get to
