Eagles draft defensive end Derek Barnett from Tennessee

Frederick Owens | 29 April, 2017, 21:50

Barnett broke White's record at Tennessee, but White is an unfair standard for the 20-year old entering the NFL. He had 32 sacks in three seasons. The Eagles and their fans can only hope he compares to White, a Hall of Famer who was a dominant force on Buddy Ryan's defenses in the late 1980s.

That was the year spent recruiting Barnett out of Brentwood Academy in Brentwood, Tennessee. "It's insane how everything plays out". Bosa went on to win NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors with the Chargers. "He probably is the greatest defensive lineman to ever play the game".

"I'm just happy they didn't boo", Barnett said of Philly's notoriously harsh fans following the pick. Fletcher Cox led the team with 6½ sacks in 2016.

This was also even more evident when it came time for the Eagles to make their first-round selection on Thursday night.

"I am surprised", Davis said, alluding to the moment he got the call from Titans GM John Robinson. Or top off their high-powered offense and get McCaffrey. And then when he gets to the top of his rush, he's able to bend and close, and finish. I can honestly say that the best host is right here in our own backyard in Billy Schweim. He can use power. We fits the culture we're trying to build.

"He stands for what we want to be and I think everyone in this city will see what kind of person he is, what kind of player is".

Clemson's Deshaun Watson and Williams were chosen in the top 12 selections of the National Football League draft, marking the first time two Clemson players have been selected among the first 12 selections. After releasing former Pro Bowl defensive end Connor Barwin, the Eagles added veteran Chris Long.

"I think I'm a relentless ball player", Barnett said. "From the very first day I arrived on campus, he was on me to refine whatever physical talents I had so that I could become a well-rounded football player". I like Fabian Moreau from UCLA and Ahkello Witherspoon from Colorado, they are both big, fast and has long arms and big hands. I know how to get to the quarterback.

Oh, and the event will take place in a giant outdoor theater live from the "Rocky steps" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

"I appreciate the love I've been receiving already", he said. As an avid sports fan, I listen to a lot of Sports Talk Radio when commuting to work near Philadelphia.

Leading the way among the 2017 Wolverine draft prospects is do-it-all Jabrill Peppers, who played myriad positions in Ann Arbor but figures to settle at strong safety in the NFL.

The Eagles entered the draft desperate for defensive help, especially at cornerback.
