#22 Philadelphia Eagles: Dee Ford, OLB/DE AU
Rory’s Take: I simply cannot understand a different pick. The Eagles added defensive backs in free agency and have a serious lack of pass rushers. Dee Ford to me is not a Round One talent, but why not the Seahawks made a similar selection in Irvin.
Chase’s Take: Dee Ford loves speed rushing and Chip Kelly loves physically fast prospects, if the Eagles want to keep on emphasizing athletic talent this pick seems like a match made in heaven.
