Written by Tony Ghaul

Philadelphia Phillies linebacker Nakobe Dean was at Nolan Smith’s draft party when the Eagles made him the No. 30 pick in the NFL draft.

Nolan Smith now joins three Georgia teammates as an Eagles Draft pick. They selected Smith’s teammate, defensive tackle Jalen Carter with the ninth overall pick.

The Eagles chose former Georgia teammates, defensive tackle Jordan Davis in the first-round pick last year at 13th overall and linebacker Nakobe Dean two rounds later with the 83rd pick.

Check out video below. Smith makes a beeline for Dean in a sea of friends and family.
