For the past four days, Eagles fans spent plenty of time critiquing the team for taking a quarterback in round two.

Many, including Donovan McNabb, have claimed to know how Carson Wentz felt about the news.

Surely, the situation is not among the things he is concerned about right now as he and his wife, Madison Oberg, had their first child on Monday night.

In a bit of a housekeeping move, the Eagles are exercised the fifth-year option on defensive end Derek Barnett's rookie contract, per Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski.

The move would keep the young defensive end with Philadelphia through the 2021 season.

In his first three seasons with the Eagles, Barnett has dealt with some injuries and has yet to have the huge stat line that many thought he would.

Across 35 games, the end has totaled 14 sacks, 67 tackles, 49 QB hits, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Of course, he also added a forced fumble and sack in the 2017 NFC Championship game and the key fumble recovery in Super Bowl LII.

In the midst of a hectic day, the Eagles acquired one veteran receiver.

The 49ers, looking to shed some cap space, agreed to send Marquise Goodwin to Philly for a swap of sixth-round picks.

Goodwin has speed with a 4.27 40-yard dash at his combine.

His production doesn't match that, however, eclipsing 500 yards just once in his career.

In seven seasons, the wideout has just over 2,200 receiving yards total.

The Eagles decided to address their most glaring need in round one, taking speedy receiver Jalen Reagor out of TCU.

On day two, the Eagles took back-up QB and a linebacker with speed and burst.

The team took the final day of the draft to get an additional 2021 pick, a veteran and seven rookies.

With the draft itself over, teams began signing the players left on the board, and the Eagles are no exception.

The Eagles decided to address their most glaring need in round one, taking speedy receiver Jalen Reagor out of TCU.

It was a decision that many fans took issue with, perhaps unjustifiably so.

On day two, the Eagles decided to ignore a glut of starting talent on the board to take a back-up QB, justifiably enraging fans, and a linebacker with less football experience than anyone other than Jordan Mailata.

The Birds are in danger of leaving this draft with one player who could make an impact in year one or possibly throughout their careers, making the later rounds critical.

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles took receiver Jalen Reagor out of TCU with their first-round pick on Thursday and were set to begin day two of the draft on Friday night.

The team had plenty of impact players available in the second-round after talent that had been available at the start of the round slid right into their laps.

Among those available were defensive linemen AJ Epenesa and Justin Madubuike, receiver Denzel Mims, offensive linemen Ezra Cleveland, Josh Jones and Lloyd Cushenberry, corner Kristian Fulton linebackers Logan Wilson and Zack Baun and safety Jeremy Chinn.

An absolute glut of players that could impact the Eagles roster.

So who do they choose?
