The Philadelphia Eagles have just selected Auburn Tigers cornerback Blake Countess in the 2016 NFL Draft!

The Eagles used their No. 196 overall pick on Countess, who spent a majority of his college career at The University of Michigan. After four years with the Michigan Wolverines, Countess used a grad transfer to head to Auburn and played well, picking up 70 tackles, 10 passes defended and two picks as a member of the Tigers defense.

Countess is the third Auburn Tiger to be picked in this year's draft, joining Shon Coleman and Ricardo Louis.

Best of luck to Countess with the Eagles!
