The Philadelphia Eagles drafted a player in the seventh round at No. 233 that many did not expect to be available. LSU safety Jalen Mills was rated as high as a second round talent by some. CBS Sports lists him as a third round pick. Character concerns and injury issues caused Mills to fall. The Eagles took a gamble and it might pay off. It remains to be seen if Mills will compete for playing time at cornerback or safety. He could be a nice backup to have with starting potential down the line. Here are some more reactions to the pick.
