Everything can change here for the Philadelphia Eagles in three days, well at least from an emotional standpoint. This isn’t a team that appears to be ready for a run at the Vince Lombardi Trophy, but we didn’t think the 2017 Birds were ready to do so either.

Though this isn’t true in any of our worlds outside of this game that we all love, the NFL might be the best example that we can use to tell stories of ‘get-rich-quick’ schemes and ‘overnight success stories’.

There’s a glimmer of hope if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan!

In professional football, last-placed teams can move from the cellar to the penthouse in an offseason or less. That probably isn’t happening in the City of Brotherly Love, but who knows? Stranger things have happened. This is a team that has a nucleus of young talent and veterans who are Pro Bowlers. The journey towards crafting the 2021 NFL roster continues tonight.

Fingers are crossed. Philly has 11 draft picks. Below, you’ll find information on every single one of them and how to stream, but say two or three prayers and find that lucky rabbit’s foot. If anyone can screw this up, it’s Howie Roseman and Jeffrey Lurie.

Here are the Philadelphia Eagles 2021 NFL Draft picks.

Thursday, April 29th (First Round), Time: 8 PM EST: 

Round 1, Pick 10: (via trade with Dallas Cowboys): DeVonta Smith, wide receiver, Alabama Crimson Tide… Dallas and Philly swap picks. Dallas gets one of the Eagles’ third-round choices as well (the 84th).

Ladies and gentlemen, many of you have gotten your wish! The Slim Reaper is a Philadelphia Eagle!

Friday, April 30th (2nd and 3rd Round), 7 PM EST:

Round 2, Pick 37: Landon Dickerson, G/C, Alabama Crimson Tide

The Philadelphia Eagles land the best interior lineman in the draft (if he’s healthy).

Round 3, Pick 73 (via trade): Milton Williams, DT, Louisiana Tech

With more talented players on the board like LSU’s Jabril Cox and Oklahoma’s Ronnie Perkins on board, the Eagles trade back from 70 to the 73rd pick and select DT Milton Williams. They pick up another sixth-rounder in the process. They’ll regret this one.

Saturday, May 1st (Rounds 4-7), 12 PM EST:

Round 4, Pick 123: The Philadelphia Eagles select cornerback Zech McPhearson. They ignore Ohio State’s Shaun Wade by doing so.

Round 5, Pick 150: With the 150th pick in Round 5 of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Eagles select running back Kenneth Gainwell. He’s from the running back factory at Memphis.

Trade alert: Prior to the 189th selection, the Eagles announced a trade:

Round 6, Pick 189: The Eagles select a defensive tackle out of USC, Marlon Tuipulotu, at the 189th-overall selection.

Round 6, Pick 191: Tarron Jackson is the selection at pick 191. This is a stud from Coastal Carolina.

Round 6, Pick 224: JaCoby Stevens, a safety from LSU is the pick at 224. This one’s a little puzzling as there were better prospects available at the position.

Round 7, Pick 234: The Philadelphia Eagles’ final selection is the first linebacker that they have taken. It’s about time, right? The choice is Patrick Johnson out of Tulane.

Here’s how Philadelphia Eagles fans can stream the three-day event.

The 2021 NFL Draft will be televised on ESPN, ABC, and the NFL Network. If you’ve ever tried to stream Monday Night Football on your ESPN app, you know that it can be an exercise in futility. The same thing will happen tonight if you try to use your ESPN app to stream the selection meeting.

Instead, go to Fubo TV. They have a free trial if you’re interested. You can also stream on the NFL app to see the show there.
