IN 2ND, EAGLE TOOK A LINEBACKER (GASP!) AND FUTURE CENTER

By Max Harper

The second round of the NFL draft is in the books, and the Eagles took a center and a linebacker (gasp):

51. C Cam Jurgens, Nebraska

A highly athletic 6-3, 303-pound pivot who probably apprentices for a year behind Jason Kelce before taking over in the middle.

83. LB Nakobe Dean, Georgia (above)

A pec injury caused a slide for the 5-11, 229-pound Butkus Award winner.

Dean is a smart, instinctive, first-rate leader whose tape should trump perceived physical limitations.

Also a good blitzer, he had six sacks for the national champs in 2021.

Dean reunites with DT Jordan Davis in Philly.
