    DTN will be a DE, not SLB, those reports were wrong.

      That makes that pick even worse!

      Why would we make one of our deepest positions even deeper? Especially when Austen Lane, Corey Wootton, and Everson Griffen, all superior prospects, are still available.

        And DTN isn't a freak athlete? He ran a 4.73 40 time, he is 6'4" and 265 pounds, he has a 37" vertical (second highest at the combine), a 10'01" broad jump, a 4.18 shuttle time which is off the charts and third best at the combine (only notable higher was Jerry Hughes) and if I remember his 10 yard split was really good as well.

          Because DTN fits the Eagles scheme better. I see DTN ultimately ending up at RE due to his style of play. Wootton may end up going to a 3-4 team due to his size, and even if he stays the same, will end up a LE, which the Eagles don't need. Not to mention Wootton's style of play doesn't fit with the defense at all. Griffen, IDK, something is up with him that we don't know about yet, and he is a LE anyway. And Lane is not a superior prospect to DTN. DTN was talked about possibly going in the second round, did you see anyone saying the same for Lane?

            I'm not going to defend it blindly like a homer, but, outside of Ansah and Norwood, DTN may have been the best value for the Eagles there.

              Plus his core strength is great, he has a strong base and he is actually really strong. He was arguably the best DE at the combine in terms of workout numbers.

                  I like how that pic shows the O-linemen giving us the textbook example for holding, lol. As a former linemen, not his proudest moment, I can tell you that.

                    Fact of the matter is that DTN will have a TREMENDOUSLY hard time finding ANY playing time, outside of special teams, if he does make the roster. I also remember Bryan Smith being an "excellent fit" to our system. He, like DTN, was also a 3rd pick.

                    While I'm on the subject though, I would put Everson Griffen at RDE in a heartbeat. His speed coming off the edge would make him a great fit. Lane is also pretty versatile, but I agree on Wootton.

                    I just have a hard time understanding why DE is getting so much attention this offseason. We've added three players to our DE rotation, and only took one away. Our DE's weren't even the weakness of this dline.

                      DTN is about 30 pounds heavier than Smith was, is coming from a D-I school where he played against the top talent in the Pac-10. He is also infinitely stronger. He is nothing like Smith, not even close.

                        We also have no business having 9 more draft picks (two of which are compensatory) when we wont be using most of them (probably 5) and they're all late round picks. Sometimes I feel like the Eagles try too hard to find that diamond in the rough, a la Trent Cole, Brian Westbrook, etc.

                          SO is he playing RDE or SLB? Cause if he is a Lb fail, if the Eagles ran a 3-4 then it would be fine to play him at olb.

                          According to SackSEER, he won't be a bust. Well actually sackSEER predicts bust better than non bust.

                            DTN is rated as a late rounder/FA on almost every web site Mayock hated the pick and gave us a 2.0 grade on it. I cant understand why he is rated so low he has the production he has the combine numbers it doesn't make sense to me.

                            Thanks Eaglez.Fan

                              Trevard Lindley.

                              Dont know how I feel about that pick. I dont want to hate on every Eagles pick, but I definitely wanted AOA.

                                It's ok to hate one this one. He has regressed each of the past two years and was demolished at the Senior Bowl. Some people thought he was a 6th-7th rounder at best.

                                He has speed and confidence issues.

                                Hey, what a surprise. Another terrible pick.

                                Keenan Clayton OLB Oklahoma. Projected 7th round pick to FA. Small Linebacker.

                                Could have gotten Cam Thomas or Eric Norwood.
