After a phenomenal first round, the Philadelphia Eagles continue to add great talent on day three in the draft This time via trade. The Detroit Lions have traded running back D’Andre Swift to Philly in exchange for a 2025 fourth-round pick and a seventh-round pick swap in this year’s draft. Swift has been on the trade block since the Lions drafted Jahmyr Gibbs in the first round. Swift was the odd man in Detroit with Gibbs and newly acquired David Montgomery in the backfield. General Manager Brad Holmes was asked about Swift’s future in Detroit and responded, “Yeah, I mean, D’Andre, he’s still on our roster,” Holmes said via Colton Pouncey of The Athletic. “He’s still part of our team. He’s still under contract with us. He’s a dynamic football player. So, (the Gibbs pick) hasn’t really changed the math there yet, but, you know, it is early.”

Swift has failed to have a 1,000-yard season in his career. Though he had to take a backseat through Jamal Willams the past two seasons. His career totals accumulated to 1,680 yards and 18 TDs on 364 carries. He also added 1,198 receiving yards and seven additional scores on 156 catches. Swift adds to the Georgia Bulldogs collection in Philadelphia with Jalen Carter, Jordan Davis, Nakobe Dean, and Nolan Smith.
