With the 237th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select DE of Boston College. Here are five facts about one the newest Eagles defensive end ...
The Eagles concluded their 2015 NFL Draft with the selection of 6-9, 295-pound defensive end Brian Mihalik out of Boston College as the 237th overall pick in the seventh round.
Head coach Chip Kelly said that Mihalik is the prototype for the team's "big people beat up little people" mantra. The Avon Lake, Ohio native played in 43 games during his Eagles career and had 82 tackles, 7.5 sacks, 15 tackles for loss and an interception for good measure.
In 2014, Mihalik started all 12 games and tied a career high with 27 tackles and posted a career-high 7.5 sacks. Mihalik has a lot of ties to the Eagles through assistant coaches Bill McGovern, Mike Dawson and Ryan Day.
Mihalik was a 4-3 defensive end at Boston College, but will become a 3-4 end with the Eagles.
