Eagles trade up to pick 12, draft Fletcher Cox.

The Philadelphia Eagles traded their 15th pick to the Seattle Seahawks for their 12th overall pick. Philadelphia gave up their 15th overall, a 4th and 6th round pick to move up.

First off, I just want to thank the Kansas City Chiefs for drafting Dontari Poe (who was just a combine hero and had below average film out there in a below average conference) and leaving the best overall DT on the board for the Birds. With that 12th overall pick the Eagles drafted Fletcher Cox from Mississippi State. Fletcher Cox is an animal who produced in the most dominant conference in college, the SEC. Fletcher Cox adds depth the Eagles defensive line and is absolutely a player to be excited about. This isn’t like the pick where we traded up to take Brandon Graham, and had a lot of us asking questions. Fletcher Cox was the right pick. I see him being an impacted and causing havoc right away. Andy, your next cheesesteak is on me.
