Philadelphia native Shareef Miller stays home.

The Eagles selected the former Penn State defensive end with the 138th overall pick to close out the fourth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday afternoon.

The 6-4, 254-pound Miller was a third-team All-Big Ten selection in 2018 after posting 41 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, and 7.5 sacks in 13 games. He was also Penn State's Co-Most Valuable Defensive Player this past season. In 40 games over his three-year career, the 22-year-old had 100 tackles, 31.5 tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.

Miller is the first defensive player selected by the Eagles in the 2019 NFL Draft. He played his final year of high school football at George Washington High School after starting his prep career at Frankford. A two-time, first-team All-Southeastern Pennsylvania honoree, Miller was ranked by all of the major recruiting services as a top 15 player in the entire state.
