Eagles Draft Speedy Cal Linebacker, Mychal Kendricks, In 2nd Round,BREAKING NEWS, Eagles Draft, News, NFLDraft Friday, April 27th, 2012
The Eagles selected Cal linebacker Mychal Kendricks with their 46th pick in this year’s draft, which was a second round pick. Kendricks was the Defensive Player of the Year in the Pac-12 and will be battling for a starting linebacker job on this year’s Eagles squad.
Kendricks has tremendous speed for a linebacker and he’s an explosive hitter. I expect the Eagles linebackers will force more fumbles with Kendricks on the squad. He ran a 4.41 forty-yard dash. I love the way he attacks the line of scrimmage. He has great instincts for finding the football.
I see this defensive football team playing the game on the other side of the line of scrimmage.
The addition of Kendricks and DeMeco Ryans makes the Eagles a much more physical defensive football team. They’re going to punishing ball carriers which is a big change from the past few years.
Last year’s linebackers are going to have their work cut out for them when it comes to getting on the football field.
