Eagles Draft Picks 2015: Do you approve of the Eric Rowe selection in the second round?

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

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

With the No. 47 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Utah defensive back Eric Rowe.

The Eagles were originally set to pick at No. 52 in the second round but they decided trading up five spots was worth it. According to the draft pick value chart, Philadelphia made a deal that was slightly in their favor. The Eagles gave up both of their fifth round selections (No. 145 and No. 156) in order to move up. The Eagles also received a sixth round selection in return (No. 191). Put another way, the Eagles received 445 points and gave up 442.5.

Even better for the Eagles is that they addressed a position of need with a player who fits what they like. Rowe has no character concerns, has good size, and can play multiple positions. Though the Eagles have a big need at safety, it appears Rowe might start out at cornerback.

Now we turn it over to you: how are you feeling about this selection?

Remember, overreacting isn't just fun; it's mandatory. It's time for you to weigh in on why is this the best/worst pick of all time. Tell us how you really feel and vote in the poll below.
