With the fourth overall pick in Thursday night’s first round of the NFL draft, the Eagles could be poised to take promising pass rusher Dion Jordan, interior defensive line force Sharrif Floyd or one of the three top-flight offensive tackles that several NFL folks believe are the safest selections this year.

Or, the Eagles could execute a familiar move and deal the pick for the chance to move down and stockpile picks to capitalize on this year’s well-documented depth.

Based on their history, the Eagles don’t seem to have any problems picking outside of their original slot. They’ve moved out of their initial position in five of the past six drafts and seven times since the 2003 draft.

Last week, general manager Howie Roseman said there was “a lot of communication” regarding the fourth pick, conversations that he said would intensify as the first round creeps closer.

Last year’s draft, rife with franchise quarterbacks and cornerstone pass rushers, featured one of the most fluid first rounds ever, with six of the first seven teams working deals and 16 of the 32 total first-round picks going to teams that selected after moving up or down.

Roseman said the Eagles are “open to anything,” and based on his track record, it’s probably closer to the truth than typical GM-speak.

“If we were sitting here last year and you would have said to me that the first five picks [after No. 1] get moved, I would have said that’’s pretty aggressive,” Roseman said. “So I think once you get into the moment and teams understand what they need to get out of the draft or what they want to get out of the draft, I think things change.””

It’s been easier for the Eagles to make deals in past years, given their place on the board: usually in the 20s, occasionally in the late teens but not top-five since Andy Reid’s first draft in 1999, when he used the second overall pick to select quarterback Donovan McNabb.
