Three Draft Picks Locked Up

Training camp is still more than a month away and the Eagles are taking the necessary steps to ensure that the newest Eagles are in camp on time.

On Saturday, the team agreed to terms on four-year contracts with three of their 2009 draft class selections -- defensive back Macho Harris, offensive tackle Fenuki Tupou and receiver Brandon Gibson. Harris and Tupou were selected in the fifth round, while Gibson was drafted in the sixth round.

A 2008 first-team All-America selection and a two-time first-team All-ACC honoree, Harris was a consistent playmaker at cornerback during his four-year career at Virginia Tech. He posted 15 interceptions for the Hokies, returning four for touchdowns, and also saw action as a returner and wide receiver.

Tupou twice garnered All-Mid Empire Conference honors at Sierra College from 2004-05, before transferring to Oregon in 2006. He was a two-time All-Pac 10 selection as a left tackle at Oregon.

Gibson finished his four-year career at Washington State as the school's all-time leading receiver after registering 2,756 yards and 17 touchdowns on 182 receptions.

Five draft picks remain to be signed, including first-day picks Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy. Rookies and selected veterans are expected to report to training camp at Lehigh University on July 26.
