The Philadelphia Eagles endured one of the most memorable late-season collapses in the NFL, rife with locker room drama, coaching concerns, and a remarkable early season 10-1 run that fell apart to finish 11-7 with a blowout loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.
The Eagles’ roster has plenty of holes to fill if they want to turn their situation around. How many picks do the Eagles have in the 2024 NFL Draft to do so?

How Many Picks Do the Eagles Have in 2024?
The Eagles are projected to have five picks in the 2024 NFL Draft before any compensatory selections are announced. However, those additional picks are expected to impact the Eagles’ capital significantly, giving them a likely total of nine picks to play with come April.
Of their confirmed picks, the Eagles acquired the Saints’ second-rounder via a draft-day trade in 2022. Philadelphia and New Orleans swapped eight picks, with the final being the Saints’ second-rounder. New Orleans ended up taking Chris Olave and Trevor Penning.
Philadelphia has traded all of its original picks from Rounds 3 through 7 in various deals.
Their third-round pick was used to trade up for Georgia CB Kelee Ringo last year. Moving up one spot for Georgia DT Jalen Carter in 2023 cost their fourth-round pick. Various deals involving Kevin Byard, Kentavius Street, Jalen Reagor, Ugo Amadi, and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson have affected their picks.
Who Did the Eagles Draft in 2023?
The Eagles’ first-round pick, defensive tackle Jalen Carter out of Georgia, enjoyed a strong rookie year. Many thought he was on the fast track to winning Defensive Rookie of the Year after his hot start to the season, but his production tallied off as the Eagles’ defense plummeted, and Texans DE Will Anderson Jr. won the award in the end.
The Eagles’ second first-round pick went to another Georgia player — edge rusher Nolan Smith. Smith was buried behind Haason Reddick, Josh Sweat, and Brandon Graham as an edge rusher. He took snaps as an inside linebacker toward the end of the season due to poor depth at linebacker.
Keeping it in the SEC again, the Eagles’ third-round pick was used to draft Alabama OT Tyler Steen. Steen saw action in four games, though not at tackle, spending most of his time at right guard.
Philadelphia drafted Illinois safety Sydney Brown with their other third-round pick, acquired from the Cardinals.
Brown was the third safety on the depth chart, especially after the Eagles’ mid-season trade for Kevin Byard, but put together some solid moments at the end of the year. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL in Philadelphia’s last regular season game against the New York Giants.
The Eagles made a trade to move up for Georgia cornerback Ringo in the fourth round. Ringo rotated on the outside with several other Eagles players and recorded his first interception against the Giants in Week 16.
Philadelphia’s last two picks went to Stanford QB Tanner McKee and Texas DT Moro Ojomo. McKee did not take a snap in the regular season, and Ojomo played sparingly as a rookie.
