Eagles Select Bunkley
NEW YORK -- With the 14th pick in the first round, the Eagles have selected Brodrick Bunkley, the defensive tackle from Florida State.
Bunkley had been projected to be picked much higher, but he slipped to the Birds and could make an immediate impact.
At 6-foot-2 and 300 pounds, Bunkley had 66 tackles and nine sacks as a senior. He is much more than a run-stuffer.
It's the fourth straight year that the Eagles have drafted either an offensive or defensive lineman first and Bunkley will no doubt be a popular choice and a good value at No. 14.
