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
I'm loving your entire draft so far -- I've already told you how much I like Williams as a prospect, and adding Jordan, Elam, and Williams to each level of the Eagles defense would be a pretty amazing upgrade.
Your 4th round selection is also very solid -- picking up Wilson in the 4th round is great value, and he's got a real chance to stick in the league for several years.
You, sir, get an A- (would have been higher, but I think you could have waited another round to pick a safety just as good as Elam).
