Eagles Add a Pass Rusher

Enough with the pretty boys on offense.

Miller is 6-4, 254. He had 14.5 sacks in his three seasons at Penn State.

Miller isn’t an explosive rusher, but he is quick off the ball. He plays with good leverage and uses a shoulder dip to get by blockers. Miller has good agility, which helps him to round the edge and close to the QB. Miller played both LDE and RDE in college. He rushed from 2-pt, 3-pt and even a 4-point stance. Solid run defender.

I had Miller rated as a 5th round pick, but taking him at the end of the 4th is fine with me. The Eagles brought him to Philly for a visit recently and obviously were impressed with the meeting.

Miller does need work, but he is talented enough to contribute as a rookie.

Unfortunately, this means Chris Long is done as an Eagle. Check out these tweets from earlier today.

So DE was more of a need than some thought.

Brandon Graham
Derek Barnett
Vinny Curry
Josh Sweat
Shareef Miller

Daeshon Hall
Joe Ostman

Solid pick by the Eagles to add a pass rusher who can help in 2019 and possibly develop into a starter down the road.
