Eagles draft picks 2014: Do you approve of the Beau Allen selection in the seventh round?

We know who the Eagles picked. Now it's time to overreact.


The Philadelphia Eagles finished up their 2014 NFL Draft class by selecting defensive lineman Beau Allen from Wisconsin. Allen is a really big player. He measures in at a whopping 6-3, 333 pounds.

I'll be honest, I can't tell you that I'm very familiar with Allen. It seems like he's the large nose tackle the Eagles wanted to add as a backup for projected starter Bennie Logan. Allen will likely compete with Damion Square for the backup nose tackle job.
