Top NFL Draft Prospect is a Big Eagles and Donovan McNabb Fan
It appears that the Eagles will have three first-round picks in the upcoming April NFL Draft.
The biggest question as the draft approaches will be, will they take a quarterback with one of those three selections.
The top quarterback might be Pittsburgh signal-caller, Kenny Pickett, who grew up in nearby Oakhurst, NJ and attended Ocean Twp, high school.
The senior has won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, the ACC player of the year and the ACC Offensive Player of the Year, throwing for 4,066 yards, 40 touchdowns and just seven interceptions.
Pickett was one of the quarterbacks that Howie Roseman went to see earlier this season when he went to Pittsburgh to see the Panthers play against North Carolina and Sam Howell.
Well apparently growing up, he was a big Donovan McNabb and Eagles fan.
Appearing on the Dan Patrick radio show, Pickett was asked who his favorite quarterback was growing up.
"Donovan McNabb," Pickett answered. "I was a big Eagles fan."
Pickett said he met McNabb back when he was six or seven years old and that he used to go to the games with his dad.
Patrick reminded Pickett that the Eagles have three first-round picks.
"They do. They do," Pickett smiled.
