Twitter reacts to Eagles selecting DE Derek Barnett with 14th-overall pick

The Eagles selected Tennessee defensive end Derek Barnett with the 14th-overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, and since the draft was in Philly, the city's newest pro athlete immediately learned what fans thought of him. 

Honestly, it could've been much worse.

The reactions on Twitter, however, were less lukewarm. There, it was more a mixture of hot and cold – but that's to be expected.
