No. 12 Philadelphia Eagles: DT Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State –- At 6-4, 295, Cox is lighter than most elite defensive tackles and has very good range. He blocked five kicks in college. He has great feet, something that was evident in high school when he played power forward on the basketball team and was a member of the 4x100 relay team in track.

Comment: The Eagles have their ends, and now they’ve added a key piece to the interior of their defensive line. Philly had long targeted this pick.
