After their third round pick, the Eagles continue to focus on offense to bring in weapons for Carson Wentz.

The Eagles traded the 139th overall pick and their seventh-round pick at 230th overall to the Minnesota Vikings to acquire the 132nd pick. With that pick, they selected running back Donnel Pumphrey from San Diego State University.

Pumphrey recorded 6,405 yards, setting an FBS rushing record. He also recorded 62 touchdowns in four years with the school. He is a 5'8" back, very similar to Darren Sproles, who is reaching the end of his career.

The Eagles will pick next in the fifth round with the 155th overall pick.
