Eagles Draft by the Numbers: Wheelin' and Dealin'
You have to feel for linebacker Keenan Clayton, the Eagles’ fourth-round pick from Oklahoma. When he reports to minicamp Thursday, he’ll be an outcast. A leper. An outsider.

But a few personnel types I spoke with over the weekend though Philly overpicked in a few spots, especially safety Nate Allen of South Florida at 37.
