Nakobe Dean went to Las Vegas expecting to be a first-round pick and ended up waiting until the third round for the Philadelphia Eagles to call him.
“Made my chip grow,” Dean said.
Dean was an All-American and Butkus Award winner as the top linebacker in the country last season, helping Georgia win the national championship.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Associated Press 2021 NFL All-Pro team selected by a national panel of 50 media members:
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jalen Hurts was inactive for Philadelphia in the regular-season finale against the Dallas Cowboys, and the Eagles will start Gardner Minshew on Saturday night.
The Eagles are locked into the sixth or seventh seed in the NFC, making the game essentially meaningless.
The Philadelphia Eagles have placed defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and tight end Dallas Goedert along with 10 others on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday ahead of Saturday's regular-season finale against Dallas.
The first Pro Bowl for NFL interceptions leader Trevon Diggs of the Dallas Cowboys means the league now has three sets of brothers with invitations to the all-star game.
Diggs joins Buffalo wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who made his second in a row and also was a 2020 All-Pro selection.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jason Kelce may have been yelling for all of Philadelphia when he shouted “don’t do this!” at an official after a flag was thrown that wiped out an Eagles’ touchdown.
Travis Kelce and Jason Kelce are both three-time All-Pro picks and each has won a Super Bowl. The big advantage: Travis is 2-0 against his older brother.
The Kelce brothers face off one more time when the Philadelphia Eagles (1-2) host the Kansas City Chiefs (1-2) on Sunday.

Tight end Vernon Davis, defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis, linebacker Ryan Anderson and tackle Ty Nsekhe are all inactive for the Washington Redskins in their season finale Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
