Eagles Draft 2022
A complete list of Philadelphia Eagles picks in the 2022 NFL Draft can be found below.
The Eagles didn’t give up too much in later draft capital to move up a little and ensure the Ravens didn’t snipe them for Davis. Philadelphia was in the market for defensive line reinforcements with Howie Roseman and needed a powerful run stopper to complement Fletcher Cox, who’s also 31. Davis had a late boost up the board as he got more attention for his sometimes explosive interior pass rush.
The Eagles do address a need with retiring Brandon Brooks and aging Jason Kelce with a potential future interior starter, but Jurgens is backup material first. He is a compact well-rounded blocker, but with his athleticism needing to be developed more, he just was a more comfortable Day 3 pick.
Despite some rumblings of medical concerns, the Eagles had to stop Dean’s fall given how good of a fit he was for their defense. The active playmaking leader of the Bulldogs' national championship unit can make plays anywhere they want with his speed, quickness and coverage skills. His impact just might come inside in 2023 as he is eased in rotationally behind T.J. Edwards, Kyzir White and newcomer pass rusher Haason Reddick.
