Eagles agreed to terms with No. 212 overall pick DE Joe Kruger on a four-year contract.

Kruger is the younger brother of Browns OLB Paul Kruger. Joe is going to need some time to develop, but he already has a solid frame at 6-foot-6 and 269 pounds. He's expected to line up as a five-technique in Philly's 3-4 scheme.

Eagles selected Utah DE Joe Kruger with the No. 212 overall pick.

Kruger (6-foot-6 1/4, 269) is the younger brother of Browns $40 million linebacker Paul Kruger. Joe is more of a classic down lineman who played both end positions for the Utes, tallying nine career sacks, 14 tackles for loss, and three forced fumbles. Kruger ran 4.83 at the Combine with a 1.75 ten-yard split and 34-inch vertical. We expect him to line up at the five technique position in the Eagles new three man front.
