Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d The Eagles traded their original first-round selection (No. 22 overall) to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for the Browns' first- and third-round selections — Nos. 26 and 83 overall, respectively. The Eagles later traded the No. 83 overall selection to the Houston Texans in exchange for the Texans' fourth- and fifth-round selections (Nos. 101 and 141 overall, respectively).
  2. ^ a b The Eagles traded their original second- and fourth-round selections (Nos. 54 and 122 overall, respectively) to the Tennessee Titans in exchange for the Titans' second-round selection (No. 42 overall).
  3. ^ a b The Eagles traded their sixth-round selection (No. 198 overall) and defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga to the New England Patriots in exchange for the Patriots' fifth-round selection — No. 169 overall. The Eagles later traded the No. 169 selection to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for running back Darren Sproles.
  4. ^ The Eagles traded running back Bryce Brown and their original seventh-round selection (No. 237 overall) to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for the Bills' seventh-round selection (No. 224 overall). The trade also includes a conditional future draft selection, which the Eagles could receive from the Bills in either 2015 or 2016. If Brown hits undisclosed statistical rushing targets with the Bills in 2014, the Eagles will receive the Bills' 2016 third-round selection, otherwise, the Eagles could receive the Bills' 2015 fourth-round selection, which the Bills conditionally acquired in a trade that sent wide receiver Stevie Johnson to the San Francisco 49ers. However, if Johnson does not meet certain statistical receiving targets with the 49ers in 2014, the Bills' trade with the 49ers will be voided, and if Brown does not meet certain statistical rushing targets with the Bills in 2014, the Eagles will not receive a future draft selection from the Bills.
  5. ^ a b Simulcast on WPHL-TV.
