12th Overall Pick: Philadelphia Eagles Select Fletcher Cox
The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Fletcher Cox with the 12th overall pick. They traded up to get Cox, so clearly they think high of this guy. I had him as the best DT in the draft, so I think it’s going to be a good fit in Philadelphia.
The Eagles really struggled with their defensive interior so I figured Andy Reid was going to go lineman. I think they were a little surprised to see Cox fall as far as they did, which allowed them to move up pretty easily. I expect Fox to be outstanding for the Eagles.
