Eagles take SS Earl Wolff in 5th round

Saturday - 4/27/2013, 3:31pm  ET

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia Eagles have selected North Carolina State safety Earl Wolff in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

Wolff, a 5-foot-11, 209-pound strong safety, was chosen Saturday with the 136th overall pick. Earlier, the Eagles traded up to take Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley in the fourth round.

Wolff was a first-team All-ACC player as a senior. He had 19 tackles, two interceptions, and eight passes broken up.

He's considered a physical tackler and was a two-way star in high school, running for almost 1,000 yards as a senior.
