NFL Draft

Eagles Bolster Run D

With the 12th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Philadelphia Eagles trade up to take Defensive Tackle Fletcher Cox from Mississippi State. In a normal trade up for the Eagles they draft a lineman. This pick really fills a big hole on the defense. The Eagles were soft against the run in 2011. So Philly goes and gets maybe the best run stopper in the draft.

  • Great defensive lineman body at 6-4 300 pounds
  • Good core strength and lower body strength
  •  lowers his butt to eat up blockers
  • Very explosive for a big man
  • Can block kicks had 5 in collage

Weaknesses

  • Forgets fundamentals at times
  • Must work to fire off the ball at the snap better
  • Has had some off the field trouble in the past was suspension for one game in 2011
