List of Philadelphia Eagles 2014 NFL Draft Picks

The Philadelphia Eagles were rather successful, to the surprise of many, in 2013 under first-year head coach Chip Kelly. With a lot of folks doubting that the former Oregon coach’s offensive system could work in the NFL, he and the team proved everyone wrong by winning the NFC East and making a trip to the playoffs.

Coming into the 2014 NFL Draft, there were still some needs that had to be addressed throughout the weekend and the team may have done exactly that.

They started off in the first round on Thursday night by selecting DE Marcus Smith out of Louisville, getting the pass rushing help they desperately needed.

Here’s a look at the entire list of draft picks from the event made by Kelly and the Eagles organization via ESPN.

Rd 1 – #26(26) Marcus Smith (DE) Louisville
Rd 2 – #10(42) Jordan Matthews (WR) Vanderbilt
Rd 3 – #22(86) Josh Huff (WR) Oregon
Rd 4 – #1(101) Jaylen Watkins (CB) Florida
Rd 5 – #1(141) Taylor Hart (DE) Oregon
Rd 5 – #22(162) Ed Reynolds (S) Stanford
Rd 7 – #9(224) Beau Allen (DT) Wisconsin

The team also had a need with a wide receiver and they addressed that with the selection of Jordan Matthews in the second round to aid with the departure of DeSean Jackson.
