Sidney Jones IV, the player the Eagles drafted with their second pick (43rd overall), is from the West Coast, but he's going to fit in just fine in Philly.
Almost immediately after he was drafted, Eagles fans started looking through his old tweets, and somebody found (and retweeted) one from October 2, 2012 in which he said "Tony Romo sucks!"
Within moments of that being discovered, it disappeared from his timeline. No word on why he deleted it, especially since he was drafted to the city who most appreciate that old tweet. But don't worry; I screen-grabbed it for proof:

He also tweeted this in 2015:
