The Eagles did not need to look far for their fourth-round pick, selecting Penn State defensive end Shareef Miller, a Philadelphia native and George Washington High School alumnus.
Miller, 22, is 6-foot-4 and 254 pounds and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.69 seconds at the combine. He was a standout for the Nittany Lions defense last season, totaling 7.5 sacks and earning third-team all-Big Ten honors. He started the past two years at Penn State before declaring early for the NFL draft.

Miller’s high school career began at Frankford before he transferred to George Washington for his senior year.
The Eagles have Derek Barnett, Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry and Josh Sweat atop their defensive end depth chart. (Chris Long is still on the roster, but not expected to return.) Miller will compete for a rotational spot this summer. He was the final pick of the fourth round and the fourth player the Eagles drafted. It’s the first time since 1979 the Eagles drafted two Penn State players.
