The Philadelphia Eagles were on the clock first in the second round with the 37th overall selection that was acquired from the Washington Redskins in the Donovan McNabb trade.
They stayed put and selected safety Nate Allen out of South Florida.
Allen has good balance, quickness, and foot agility, while displaying good range in pursuit of the ball carrier. With his long arms, Allen has the ability to re-route his receivers and is technically sound in combination man and zone coverages.
He also displays a mental toughness that is needed for an impact safety in the NFL.
Allen does need to work on a few things in training camp like being more consistent in the angles he takes to the ball. He also must work on his open-field tackling.
Then entering the end of the third round the Eagles once again selected a defensive end named Daniel Te'o-Nesheim out of Washington.
Te'o-Nesheim is another non prototypical DE but has an extremely high motor and comes off the edge with good instincts. He has a knack for being a disruptive player in the backfield but is a raw talent coming into the league.
He is still inconsistent in multiple aspects of his game but defensive line coach Rory Segrest should be able to get him NFL ready with a full training camp coming up. Te'o-Nesheim is not coming in as a starting DE but rather a situational edge rusher.
Starting all four years for the Huskies', he ended his college career with 191 total tackles (113 solo), 27 sacks, and one forced fumble.
The Eagles are entering the final day with a total of nine draft picks so this draft is far from over for them and that is why I gave them a B-.
Dubrow grade: B-
