Philadelphia Eagles Sign Four Draft Picks

With the multiple announcements around the league of 2013 NFL draftees reaching agreements for their rookie contracts, the Philadelphia Eagles decided to join the mix with the signing of four members of their 2013 draft class.

The Eagles announced the official signings of Stanford tight end Zach Ertz (second-round), North Carolina State safety Earl Wolff (fifth-round), Utah Utes defensive end Joe Kruger (seventh-round), Oregon State cornerback Jordan Poyer (seventh-round) and Oklahoma defensive end David King (seventh-round).

That leaves the Eagles with just three unsigned draft picks — Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson (first-round), LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan (third-round) and USC quarterback Matt Barkley (fourth-round).

Out of the four players who were signed, Ertz is the most likely to make an immediate impact.

Wolff and Poyer will focus their attention on special teams during their rookie seasons, while defensive linemen Kruger and King look to work their way in to the defensive rotation, which will be no easy task. Third-rounder Bennie Logan is much more likely to find his way in to the lineup in his first NFL season.
