The Eagles got their man on Thursday night, snagging Mississippi St. defensive tackle Fletcher Cox after moving up three spots to the 12th overall pick. To be able to get the guy they wanted all along for the relatively meager price of a fourth-rounder and sixth-rounder, the team and their fans have to be immensely satisfied. But what about the reaction across the league? Overwhelmingly positive as well ...
Everything fell right into place for the Eagles on the first night of the draft.
The draft experts love the Eagles' selection.
The Eagles played the first round perfectly, according to Pro Football Weekly.
Defensive line coach Jim Washburn says Fletcher Cox was born to play in his system.
With three picks in their pocket over the next two rounds, the Eagles have a chance to add even more dynamic young talent to the roster. Who might be on their radar?
