The Philadelphia Eagles acquired the No. 2 overall pick from the Cleveland Brown on Wednesday afternoon, shaking up the top of the 2016 NFL draft.

It was the second trade this week involving the top two picks of this month’s draft, after the Los Angeles Rams grabbed the No. 1 overall slot in a deal with the Tennessee Titans.

The Rams and Eagles are expected to select quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz with the two top spots, although it is uncertain which team will take which quarterback.

The two deals open things up for the San Diego Chargers, who hold the No. 3 overall pick in the draft.

They will likely have their choice of every non-quarterback prospect on the board.

In his latest mock draft, released Thursday morning, ESPN analyst Todd McShay projects the Bolts to select Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey, who is rated by many as the most talented prospect.

Ramsey would be a big help in the secondary after the loss of veteran safety Eric Weddle this offseason.

It is not guaranteed that the Chargers will keep the pick, however, as they are receiving interest from teams outside of the top 10 for the top slot, according to NFL insider Marc Sessler.
