Fletcher Cox named to PFW All Rookie team

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Pro Football Weekly/Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team was released today and Eagles first round pick Fletcher Cox has made the team.

In a year to forget for the Eagles’ defense, Fletcher Cox was a bright spot with 5? sacks and four passes defensed. Rams DT Michael Brockers came on strong late in the season and tallied four sacks.

Cox led all rookie DTs with 5.5 sacks and led the Eagles defensive line with 65 total tackles.

Redskins rookies Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris also made the team. No Cowboys were on the list, but Giants RB David Wilson did make it as a kick returner.

PFW/PFWA also released their All Pro NFL team, but no Eagles made that.

Also, Bruce Arians was named coach of the year & assistant of the year.
