Eagles sign Rowe, two other picks

PHILADELPHIA - The Eagles got to work on their 2015 draft class Wednesday, signing their second-round pick, defensive back Eric Rowe, as well as late-rounders Randall Evans and Brian Mihalik.

The 6-foot-1 Rowe is expected to push for a starting cornerback job opposite free-agent signee Byron Maxwell. He appeared in 47 games (45 starts) during his four-year career at Utah, playing both corner and safety, and accumulated 261 tackles, three interceptions and 34 passes defensed in his career.

Rowe earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors as a senior in 2014 after starting 10 games at cornerback and totaling 59 tackles, one interception and a team-leading 13 pass breakups.

A former walk-on at Kansas State, Evans, one of the team's sixth-round selections, started 31 games for Kansas State as corner, recording 210 tackles, seven interceptions and 35 passes defensed in his career. As a senior, he earned first-team All-Big 12 accolades, while leading the Wildcats with four interceptions and 14 passes defensed in 13 games.

A seventh-round draft choice, the 6-9 Mihalik started all 13 games as a senior at Boston College in 2014 and set career highs in tackles (31) and sacks (4 1/2). He appeared in 44 career games at BC, finishing his collegiate tenure with 86 tackles, 16 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks.
