Eagles sign a pair of fourth-round picks
The Philadelphia Eagles reeled in a pair of fourth-round draft picks as quarterback Mike Kafka and tight end Clay Harbor both signed four-year contracts, the club announced.
Kafka, a Northwestern product, has an opportunity to become the Eagles’ No. 3 quarterback this season and work behind starter Kevin Kolb and backup Michael Vick. He was a second team All-Big Ten selection last season.
Harbor, from Missouri State, will look to fill in behind starter Brent Celek. He was wildly productive in college and the Eagles were looking for some depth as they are uncertain about the status of Cornelius Ingram, a draft pick from 2009 who has missed two straight years with separate ACL tears.
Now, the Eagles have nine of their 13 draft picks under contract. The Chicago Bears, who had only five selections, are the only team to have all picks signed.
