Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman, whose shrewd executive-of-the-year moves laid the groundwork for the team’s Super Bowl victory over the Patriots, was already talking Wednesday about all of the compensatory draft picks the Eagles are going to get next year for the free agents they aren’t going to re-sign this year.

“With the number of free agents’’ they could potentially lose, “I think it would be impossible for us not to have a bunch of compensatory picks’’ in 2019, Roseman said. “All of that is part of our plan going forward.”

That plan is to accumulate as many draft picks as possible the next few years so that they’ll be able to counter-balance the monster contracts they’re already paying many of their top veterans and the Godzilla deal they’re going to be giving Carson Wentz in either 2019 or 2020
.

Looks like we're going to be very active with trading down to add more picks. Limited scope to do that in 2018 so may need to wait until next year.

Who are the current players who will loose roster spots to the low round picks?

I don't expect them to do much trading down, except maybe Round 1. I won't be surprised if they trade up in the later rounds to get the guy they want. There are not many spots to fill.
