With two sacks last week, Derek Barnett is already becoming a fan favorite in Philadelphia with the Eagles. On Thursday night, he picked up his third.

That’s vintage Barnett right there. Speed, rip through and a sack.
Draft analysts got caught up in his athletic testing during the process, but the guy just produces. He’s didn’t test like an elite pass rusher, but you can’t discredit the early returns. All he did at Tennessee was make big plays. That’s continuing in Philadelphia.
It should be fun watching him compete in the NFC East for the next several years.
