The Eagles Pick Quintin Demps With The 117th Pick

This was the extra pick the Eagles got for trading down with the Vikings, and they used it very wisely in my opinion.

Quintin Demps is a free safety from UTEP who has a great understanding of the game. He is not the fastest guy, but he is very smart, and is able to cover his ground well.

This pick fills a huge need, because Brian Dawkins can not play football forever. Demps has a year or two to develop behind Dawkins, and then hopefully he will be ready to take over then.
