He was drafted by the Eagles in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He played college football at North Carolina State, but becoming a Philadelphia Eagle is a dream for safety Earl Wolff.
Wolff grew up idolizing former Eagles great Brian Dawkins, the crushing hard hitting leader for the then vaunted Philadelphia defense.
The team is in the middle of restructuring their secondary bringing in new players and Wolff would love the opportunity to imitate his hero.
"Before I even started playing safety, I watched Brian Dawkins," said Wolff, via Zach Berman of Philly.com.
"Once I made that move to safety, that's when I fell in love with him. Honestly, my first couple of years, that's what I watched before the games. I'd put on a Brian Dawkins highlight film, and now I'm here."
"I feel I can come and contribute," Wolff said. "If it's special teams, then special teams. I feel I can come and help out in the safety position. I feel I'm pretty versatile."
"I play the game with passion, and I kind of took that from him," Wolff said. "And he flies around and makes plays. That's what I'm all about. That's what I want to be."
