Eagles Sign Mychal Kendricks To Four-Year DealBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, Linebackers, News Tuesday, May 8th, 2012
The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a four-year deal with their second-round draft choice, linebacker Mychal Kendricks. The youngster was the fastest linebacker at this year’s NFL Combine. He’s the first Eagles draft pick to sign a deal with the Birds.
The young backer will be battling veteran Jamar Chaney for the starting strongside linebacker position. I think he would be an outstanding weakside backer because he can run, get to the ball and make tackles.
He’s got great instincts and a nose for the football. Kendricks makes plays all over the field and has the ability to put a serious pounding on ball carriers. He gets his hands on footballs and can make plays in the run and passing game.
I think he’s a very good player, but I don’t like the idea of matching him up against the league’s tight ends, who stand 6’4′, 6’5″, and 6’6″.
He was the 2011 Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year at University of California.
