The Philadelphia Eagles didn’t have a long night on Day 2 of the NFL Draft, at least not from a fan’s perspective, but it was most certainly action-packed. The fireworks started with the announcement that the Birds were trading the 62nd selection to the Houston Texans. They landed the 65th selection and two more picks on Day 3 as a result.

Philly now owns the 188th choice in Round 6 and the 230th in Round 7 (they own three seventh-round picks as a result). With the 65th choice, they added offensive lineman Tyler Steen out of Alabama. Sydney Brown (Illinois) was the next choice at 66.

Check out the highlights:

Here’s some background info on the two newest Eagles.

Sydney Brown is a five-foot-ten, 211-pound defensive back that many NFL teams rank as one of the top three safeties in this class. He manned the strong safety duties for the Illinois Fighting Illini in 2022.

On the year, he collected 59 tackles, a sack, seven passes broken up, and six interceptions. He had racked up four interceptions during his previous four seasons. He also had 88 tackles in 2019.’s Lance Zierlein labels him as a good NFL backup that has the potential to become a starter.

Offensive lineman Tyler Steen is a six-foot-six, 321-pound monster. He was also a three-year starter at Vanderbilt before transferring to Alabama for his final season. He was a solid protector for Bryce Young. He was also a phenomenal run blocker and had a good week at the Senior Bowl.

He is also a nice backup that has the potential to start, but he may see some time in Philly if there are any unexpected injuries.
