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.
