Nakobe Dean dropped to pick No. 83 overall in the third round because of predraft injury concerns, but the newest Philadelphia Eagles linebacker will be on the field next week for rookie camp.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and Dan Graziano, A group of independent doctors has already cleared Dean, with letters sent to all 32 teams classifying the injury as a pectoral strain, a source told Fowler.
