With the 22nd pick in the NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select…

Dee Ford, DE, Auburn

Selection made by Todd Duvall, Inside the Iggles

Here is the analysis on the selection:

I have always been high on Ford. He is a student of the game and plays smart football. He is small for a defensive end but he makes up for it with his speed and agility. He also compensates for his smallish size with really long arms, (32.875″). His speed off the line and tenacity to finishing a play is a great plus. That explosion off the line will make it hard for the Eagles to overlook with their 3-4 defense. Ford became a force in 2013. He ended the regular season with 12.5 tackles for a loss including 8.5 sacks.
