See what Andrew Salciuans found in the Audio Vault today. Every day Andrew dives into the Vault to play audio relevant to the day. And on the day after a great first round by the Eagles, he dedicated this Vault to the selection of Jalen Carter.
Everything seemed to break the Eagles’ way last night. We sat there and worried that each pick would be Carter. But team after team passed on him. Letting him fall all the way to 9. The Eagles then made the move, giving up just a future 4th round pick to jump up one spot and take the guy everyone knew they wanted all along.
Off-the-field issues aside, it is hard to be happier with how it turned out for the Eagles. Many draft experts and Scouts considered Jalen Carter to be the most talented player in the draft. Legal trouble stemming from a crash that took the lives of two other people in the Georgia program made him fall. But Eagles evidently felt comfortable that they could work with him and keep him out of future trouble. And if they are right about that, they may have gotten the steal of the draft.
So today, Andrew and Anthony relived how Jalen Carter came to be an Eagle. The reaction to the pick. A Cowboys player being upset by it, and more. Relive the pick with Anthony and Andrew below.
