The 1993 Philadelphia Eagles season was their 61st in the league. The team failed to improve upon their previous output of 11–5, winning only eight games[1] and failed to qualify for the playoffs for only the second time in six seasons. Ten of their sixteen games were decided by a touchdown or less. The team was without future hall of fame defensive end Reggie White, who had signed via free agency with the Green Bay Packers.

The downturn was directly related to the twin losses of QB Randall Cunningham (broken leg) and WR Fred Barnett (ACL tear) to season-ending injuries in a 35–30 win against the New York Jets on October 3. Though the Eagles won their first four, following that game, lost six straight to fall out of playoff contention. Bubby Brister was only able to do so much in a starting role, but the club rallied to win their final three games, including their first road win in San Francisco in 10 years.

One notable feat by an opponent came on Halloween in Philadelphia, when Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith sloshed his way to 237 yards and one TD at a rainy Veterans Stadium in a 23–10 victory.

Off Season[edit]

The Eagles held training camp at West Chester University of Pennsylvania for the 14th consecutive year.

NFL Draft[edit]

The 1993 NFL Draft was held April 25–26, 1993. The draft is reduced to 8 rounds, down from 12 Because the Eagles tied with 5 other teams at 11–5 in 1992, they rotated in picking 20th to 25th in the 8 rounds. There were 224 players taken in this draft by the NFL.

The number 1 pick in the draft was made by the New England Patriots who picked Drew Bledsoe a Quarterback out of Washington State.

The Eagles had 2 first round picks number 19 and 24. They chose Lester Holmes a Tackle out of Jackson State and Leonard Renfro a Defensive Tackle out of Colorado with those picks

Player Selections[edit]

The table shows the Eagles selections and what picks they had that were traded away and the team that ended up with that pick. It is possible the Eagles' pick ended up with this team via another team that the Eagles made a trade with. Not shown are acquired picks that the Eagles traded away.
