SHOCKER: Birds trade up 2 spots for WR Maclin

The Eagles traded up from 21 to 19 to select WR Jeremy Maclin of Missouri, the most explosive player in the draft.

The Eagles dealt their first-rounder, No. 21, and a sixth-rounder, 195th overall, to haul in Missouri product Maclin, who ran a 4.45 40-yard dash at the scouting combine.

Widely forecast to come off the board at the seventh pick with the Raiders, Maclin returns kicks in addition to playing WR.
