NFL Draft first round results 2014: Philadelphia Eagles take Marcus Smith with No. 26 pick

The Philadelphia Eagles traded back twice in the 2014 NFL Draft. First they moved back one spot from their original No. 21 selection to No. 22 in a trade with the Green Bay Packers. They moved back a second time to No. 26 in a trade with the Cleveland Browns.

When their No. 26 pick came up they kept it and drafted Louisville Cardinals defensive end Marcus Smith. It was a somewhat surprising pick and the crowd in attendance let out a collective groan. You thought head coach Chip Kelly would’ve focused on the offense and gone with a wide receiver, but instead he made a less glamorous pick.
