Eagles draft DT Jordan Davis at No. 13 overall
The Philadelphia Eagles have traded up in the draft, jumping ahead of Baltimore and obtaining the #13 overall pick from Houston.
The Eagles then selected Georgia DT Jordan Davis with the #13 overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft.
The trenches have always been a priority to Howie Roseman. It was almost a given that he’d use one of his first-round picks to bolster the defensive front.
You’ve heard it before, but Davis is an absolute freak of nature at 6-foot-6, 341 pounds, with 33″ arms and a 6-8 wingspan. Due to his size, Jordan Davis demands double-teams every time he’s on the field and, surprisingly, has missed zero tackles over the past two seasons.
His every-down consistency is a significant concern, but Jordan Davis has all of the physical traits to be one of the more dominant players at his position. Drafting Davis solidifies an already imposing defensive line and sets the Eagles up for future success.
Davis’ mom is also a big Eagles fan, a win for the entire family.
