Why this pick is such a good fit
In the end, this is an excellent fit. Qualls brings a common sense, high IQ to a defense that requires both. His goals are lofty, but not fantasy. He already sounds like a veteran of the Philadelphia mindset.
"“I think I can be one of the best players coming out of this draft and be one of the best in the NFL,” Qualls said. “But, that’s going to be determined by how hard I work for it and what I pick up.”"
In the end, many teams fan bases coveted this guy. And for good reason. He delivers incredible football production and does so willingly. Wherever the coach needs him to line up, that’s where he goes.
