By Allen Roriguez — Follow this blog on Twitter The Eagles made the purely pick-for-picks trades (no players involved) on draft day. Using Football Perspective’s draft pick value calculator (FP) and the classic Jimmy Johnson value calculator (JJ), let’s see how the Eagles did. Trade #1: PHI trades #22 to CLE for #26 and #83 […]
