Eagles Tab DT Beau Allen in Seventh Round of the 2014 NFL Draft


The Philadelphia Eagles are officially done making selections in the 2014 NFL Draft after selecting Wisconsin DT Beau Allen with the 224th pick overall in the seventh round. Allen played in 54 games during his career, a Wisconsin school record, and didn’t miss a single contest along the way. At 6’2, 332, he projects best as a reserve NT to compete with Damion Square, an undrafted free agent from 2013.

Now that Chip Kelly, Howie Roseman, and the rest of the Philadelphia Eagles brass has completed the pick-making process, here’s the first look at the complete 2014 Philadelphia Eagles rookie class:


Round 1, Pick 26 – Marcus Smith, Louisville OLB

Round 2, Pick 42 – Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt WR

Round 3, Pick 86 – Josh Huff, Oregon WR

Round 4, Pick 101 – Jaylen Watkins, Florida CB/S

Round 5, Pick 141 – Taylor Hart, Oregon DE

Round 5, Pick 162 – Ed Reynolds, Stanford S

Round 7, Pick 224 – Beau Allen, Wisconsin DT


The action isn’t over, though, as the Eagles should be quite active in obtaining the rights to some sought-after talent in the undrafted period. I know, how can they be sought-after if they weren’t drafted, right? It makes sense though, as teams are more likely to take risks on players with character issues or injury concerns when they can negotiate with the player on their own terms, allowing the opportunity to release them with minimal penalty should an issue arise.
