Tell Chris your opinion.

With the fourteenth pick in the NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles selected defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley of Florida State. The Eagles thought about taking a linebacker originally if Bunkley and Ngata were both gone already. Bunkley fell right into their hands though, and will be a solid presence on their defensive line.

Scouting Information on Wimbley: Brodrick Bunkley attended Florida State in college and did very well for them. Bunkley had a fairly quiet start to his career, and did not start for a full season until his senior year. However, that senior year was very impressive. Bunkley had 57 tackle, nine sacks, and one forced fumble during his final season.

Bunkley has the proper strength and athleticism needed to make an impact in the NFL. He does a good job making plays in the backfield by getting a quick step on an offensive lineman. Once a quarterback is in his sights, he is able to hunt him down often and record the sack, as he showed this past season. Although he's good at rushing on a pass play, he needs to work on his overall performance during a running play. He does not have the greatest size, so when the offensive line is set up for a run play, Bunkley gets pushed around. Bunkley has had some injury concerns in college .

Bunkley may need some experience in the NFL before he becomes a starter due to his size. However, he is considered the second best defensive tackle in the draft.
