Round 4, Pick 138 (Compensatory pick):
Philly likes Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, and everyone likes the fact that he can play in the slot, as a high safety, and, also, as a down safety. His versatility has him on a few radars. NFL.com believes he can become a starter fairly quickly.
Here’s someone who can come off of the board on the NFL Draft’s third day. That’s good value for a player of his caliber.

Round 5, pick 163:
Kyle Shurmur, QB, Vanderbilt Commodores
The talk of Philly taking a quarterback has come up recently, and quietly, Kyle Shurmur’s name is coming up.
The younger Shurmer threw for 8,865 yards and 64 touchdowns during his four-year (44 games) career in the mighty SEC with Vanderbilt. That’s not an easy task on any SEC roster, let alone at a school that will never be confused as a football powerhouse.
Round 6, Pick197:
Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama State Hornets
The Eagles, no doubt, need to address their offensive line in the 2019 NFL Draft, but with so many pressing needs, there may be a possibility that they’ll do so late. Howard didn’t come into the draft process with a ton of fanfare, but hard work has gotten him to a point where everybody who’s anybody knows exactly who he is.
NFL.com compares him to Desmond Harrison and believes he has a chance to become a starter at the pro level. Might he become one of the newest Eagles? Time will tell.
