The Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up their rookie minicamp on Monday and there clearly seem to be some players winning early favor from the Eagles organization and head coach Andy Reid. One of those players is 2nd-round draft pick LB Mychal Kendricks.
Reid praised what he saw from Kendricks, saying he “looked good out here.” The 5’11, 239 linebacker out of California and the other camp participants on defense worked a lot on blitzing, something Kendricks did well in college. The coach liked what he saw there from the young linebacker there as well, saying
“[General Manager] Howie [Roseman] and I told you when we took Mychal that it’s one of his strengths. He was really good at that in college. You can get a guy coming off the tight end side or the strong side and you feel comfortable with speed, agility, and the ability to adjust to make the tackle when he’s moving fast and furious to go forward.”
Another impressive move from Kendricks at the rookie camp? Aception from QB Nick Foles....
