PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Utah defensive end Joe Kruger with the first of their three seventh-round picks.

Kruger was chosen Saturday with the 212th overall pick. He’s listed at 6-foot-6 and 269 pounds.

Kruger is the youngest of three brothers. Paul Kruger is a linebacker for Cleveland. Dave Kruger was a defensive tackle at Utah.

Scouts say Joe Kruger has plenty of upside in a 3-4 defense, which Philadelphia plans to use.
