The Philadelphia Eagles announced the signing of three of their 2012 NFL Draft picks on Friday. As with some of their early draft signings, Brandon Boykin, Brandon Washington and Bryce Brown were signed to four-year deals.
Brandon Boykin, a cornerback from the University of Georgia, was taken in the fourth round. Brandon Washington, a guard from the University of Miami, was selected in the sixth round. Bryce Brown, a running back from Kansas State University, was picked in the seventh round.
Boykin was effective as a cornerback, especially at stopping the run, as well as being a dangerous return man for the Bulldogs. Washington didn't miss a start as a junior and senior at tackle and guard for the Hurricanes. Brown was a highly-recruited running back out of high school who played for Tennessee for one season before transferring to Kansas State where his brother played. His 2011 season was ended the opening game with an ankle injury.
