The Eagles selected Heisman Trophy winner Devonta Smith with the 10th overall selection. They returned a day — and 27 choices — later to select Alabama center Landon Dickerson in the second round.

Dickerson likely would have been a first-rounder if not for his torn anterior cruciate ligament in the SEC title game in December.

Starting center Jason Kelce, 34, has two years left on his deal. Dickerson could play guard to start his career but projects as Kelce’s future replacement.

Dickerson reunites with Jalen Hurts, who started his college career at Alabama.

  1. As good as Rnd1 pick was, Rnd 2 got us Eagles fans scratching our heads..
    Howie Strikes Back.

  2. Good player, but brace yourself. He gets hurt a lot. He basically played half a season for FSU despite being there three years and ended his career injured again at Alabama.

  3. The injuries are a worry, but come on, man…this kid’s a Rimington Award winner (award for the best center in the country), who is a mauler, especially when he gets to the second level, just an outright beast.

    And Jason Kelce’s not gettin’ younger, folks.

  4. Best part of the Landon Dickerson highlights was one of the highlights was devontae smith going over the middle, getting hit,and dropping the ball….neither one of the eagles top 2 picks will stay healthy in the nfl.
