Eagles Draft Picks 2015: Do you approve of the Jordan Hicks selection in the third round?

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

With the No. 84 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Texas linebacker Jordan Hicks.

The selection came as a surprise. The Eagles hadn't shown a ton of pre-draft interest in him and the team already has a logjam at linebacker. Many expected Philadelphia to address the offensive line or the safety position late on Day 2. Instead, Hicks is the pick.

The linebacker fits the Eagles' offseason pattern of acquiring players with injury issues. Hicks played in all 13 games in 2014, but he dealt with a hip injury and an Achilles injury early on at Texas.

It seems like Hicks could be an eventual replacement to DeMeco Ryans (AKA Mufasa) based on this sentiment:

In the meantime, he will likely serve as depth and contribute on special teams.

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.
