Caravel-alum Darnell Savage is heading to Green Bay after the Packers selected him with the 21st pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Maryland safety had been steadily moving up draft boards in recent weeks, with a few first round grades, but the Packers liked him enough to trade back into the first round and take him as the first selected safety.

Savage intercepted 8 passes at Maryland, bringing one back for a touchdown in both his junior and senior seasons. He also returned a punt return for a score on his only return as a junior.

Darnell won a state championship at Caravel, and overcame a broken leg to get back on the field as a senior, where he rewarded Maryland's persistence by going to College Park.

One pick later, the Eagles went for Washington State offensive lineman Andre Dillard.

Despite being 6'5", 315 lbs., Dillard ran a 4.96 40-yard dash at the NFL combine.

He was selected as a Third Team Associated Press All-American as a senior, with Pro Football Focus College calling him the top pass-blocking tackle and second best screen-blocking tackle in the country.

Washington State says he allowed just one sack on 677 pass attempts as a senior.

The Eagles moved up 3 slots to trade with Baltimore for the selection, giving up their No. 25 pick, along with No. 125 and No. 197 later in the draft.
