Eagles Get Their Rolle On in Round 6

By Luke Zimmermann on April 30, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Ohio State linebacker and emotional leader Brian Rolle has a new home. The Philadelphia Eagles selected Rolle with the 28th pick in the 6th round, the 193rd overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. 

Rolle joins former Buckeye Kurt Coleman in the City of Brotherly Love and looks to compete with Moises Foukou and Akeem Jordan at Will or with Jamar Chaney and Omar Gaither at Mike for the NFC East champions. On a team long known for their stout defenses, Rolle should have every bit the opportunity to make an impact immediately on special teams and down the road for a team that should continue to be in the mix amongst the NFC's best.
