The New England Patriots select Sylvester Williams DT North Carolina.
Ideally, the Patriots would like to trade back and recover more picks (the Pats only have 5 this year), but in the interest of expediency they stand pat and take a big, quick penetrating DT with upside to pair with Wilfork in the middle.
After missing out on EJ Manuel, the Eagles decide to go with their second choice and continue to strengthen their defense with another Alabama star Jesse Williams. He has versatility and experience in a 3-4 and still has untapped potential as the Australia native has relatively little experience playing football.
