With the 243rd overall pick the Philadelphia Eagles select DT Jeff Owens

With the first of their two comp picks in the 7th round, the Eagles select Jeff Owens, DT Georgia.

Quick take on the 6-1 304 pounder

Owens is coming off a solid 2009 season after missing all but one game in 2008 with a knee injury. Owens is a short, squatty built but strong interior defender that is more of a run stopper than pass rusher. He can anchor well when he keeps his pads down but needs to improve his hand use to disengage quicker to the ball. Owens needs an expanded pass rush package to be effective at the next level but has the natural power to push the pocket. Owens is a tough hard-nosed lineman that has some athletic limitations but his intangibles (motor, leadership qualities) gives him a great chance to contribute in his rookie season.
