RB Charles Scott is the first draft pick to sign

Today the Philadelphia Eagles announced that they've agreed to a four year deal with their sixth round pick, RB Charles Scott from LSU. The 6-0 238lb power back is the first of the Eagles 13 draft picks to sign. He was taken with the 200th overall pick.

One down, twelve to go!

Oh and this is a great chance to repeat the best stat I heard about any Eagles draft pick... Charles Scott never fumbled in college.

A three-time all-district honoree from Jonesboro-Hodge HS, Scott was tagged as the state’s Gatorade Player of the Year, in addition to being named Louisiana’s “Mr. Football” after rushing for 2,039 yards and adding 28 touchdowns as a senior.

"Mr Football?" I like it.
