Athlete that can rush or drop back and cover all the bigger faster TEs becoming more popular

2-03 (35): Philadelphia (Arkie)- Matt Elam, SS, Florida
Ferocious hard hitting safety that can blitz and play the run, but also has the awareness to play deep and read the QB. The Eagles have been looking for a safety since Brian Dawkins left.

3-05 (67): Philadelphia (Arkie)- Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern
Big, strong and agile lineman that can play anywhere from nose to 5 tech

4-04 (101): Philadelphia (Arkie)- Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
Tyler is a tough gunslinger, a great football player

Pretty good draft in terms of value. Maybe Williams went a little bit earlier than he likely will, but I think the 3rd Round is right. Wilson probably went later than he likely will, not sure about his fit in this system though. Matt Scott would have been better to me. Philly has been all over him in real life as well.

Still, for draft value, I'd give it an A.
