With the No. 101 overall pick — and first on day three of the NFL Draft — the Philadelphia Eagles selected Florida CB Jaylen Watkins. Watkins has long arms, a trait that Chip Kelly covets. He has also played safety as well.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the selection:
Jaylen Watkins is the first eagles pick I don't cringe at

Solid pick in Jaylen Watkins from the Eagles. He's a great CB that could even fill in at S for us. Florida's start Corner, hopefully help us

Awesome selection for The Eagles. Jaylen Watkins will be a difference-maker for Philly. He's fast, and covers very well. Great pick.
