Eagles Have Added Potentially Two Compensatory Picks This Week

The Eagles were able to plan part of their future this week, as the team has potentially added two compensatory draft picks thanks to two different moves: one made by the Eagles and the other by the San Francisco 49ers.

First, the Eagles decided to release linebacker L.J. Fort last Friday. In doing so, the Eagles have now added a 4th-round compensatory pick that they will receive for the 2020 draft.

The other pending move that will help the Eagles happened today, as the 49ers are planning to sign Jordan Matthews. So if Matthews is on San Francisco's roster for 10 weeks this season, the Eagles will now receive a 5th-round compensatory pick for 2020.

Before this week the Eagles were only projected to have one compensatory draft pick - a 3rd rounder in compensation for losing Nick Foles. Here's a visual chart provided by Philly Voice which will show the current projections for the 2020 Compensatory Picks.

So now if the Eagles wanted to potentially add one more compensatory pick, they would have to release Andrew Sendejo before he spends 10 weeks on the roster. With these other moves this week helping the Eagles gain two picks, Roseman might be reluctant to get rid of Sendejo if he feels the team still needs him.

If everything stays exactly how it is right now, the Eagles are set to have 10 draft picks in 2020,
