Eagles Sign 2nd Round Picks Mychal Kendricks, Vinny Curry

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed two more of their nine 2012 NFL Draft picks, locking up both of their second rounders in linebacker Mychal Kendricks and defensive end Vinny Curry. Kendricks reportedly signed a four-year deal with the team. Terms of Curry's contract were not immediately disclosed.

The Eagles also signed fifth round draft choice offensive tackle Dennis Kelly and sixth round wide receiver Marvin McNutt. The team is still working out terms for their Round 1 draft pick, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox out of Mississippi State.

Kendricks won Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2011 with 103 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions at Cal, and he is expected to compete immediately for the starting spot at strongside linebacker. Curry also won 2011 DPOY honors in Conference USA after recording 11 sacks among his 22 tackles for loss.
