By Max Harper

The Eagles took Sydney Brown, a first-team All-Big Ten safety from the University of Illinois, in the third round, No. 66 overall, of the 2023 NFL Draft.

“I’m excited to work with the veteran players in the organization and help this team in games,” Brown said shortly after being selected on Friday night.

A native of London, Ontario, Canada, he arrives in Philadelphia with a proven nose for the ball. During his senior season, Brown led the Big Ten with six interceptions.

In the November 26 game against Northwestern, Brown recorded two picks, one which he returned 39 yards for a touchdown. He also scored in the same quarter on a 53-yard fumble return, helping the Illini snap a three-game losing streak with the 41-3 victory.

Brown’s effort was recognized by being named as the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week, Bednarik Award National Player of the Week, Senior Bowl Player of the Week, and Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.
