#22 Philadelphia Eagles: Dee Ford, OLB/DE AU

Rory’s Take: To me Dee Ford is not a first round talent. Yes he is fast off the edge and can bend it, but he lacks pass rush moves, gets buried on run downs, and has limited linebacker experience. However, I heard at the Senior Bowl first practice Chip Kelly went to the field to watch Dee Ford. After five minutes he smiled and walked away commenting on Dee Ford’s explosiveness.

Chase’s Take: We have had Ford landing in Philly for awhile and I think that is even more likely now that he didn’t participate fully in workouts at the Combine. He is a first round talent, but unless a team reaches for him I don’t think he is a Top 20 talent.
