Eagles Show Interest in yet Another TE

I think it is becoming obvious what the Eagles draft day priorities are.

 

Sleeper Tight End Nalbone Gaining NFL Interest

Posted by Aaron Wilson on March 28, 2009, 1:04 p.m. EDT

Small-school tight end John Nalbone is looking to follow in the footsteps of former Monmouth teammate and current Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin into the NFL.

Nalbone will visit the New York Jets on April 9. He has also scheduled a private workout with the Philadelphia Eagles and is in the process of setting up more visits and workouts.

At 6′4″, 256 pounds, Nalbone has intriguing 4.57 speed in the 40-yard dash and caught 101 career passes for 1,273 yards and nine touchdowns. He has bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times and registered a 33-inch vertical leap with a 9-10 broad jump.

“I think that he has all of the measurables NFL teams are looking for in terms of height, weight, speed, movement and athleticism,”  Monmouth coach Kevin Callahan told the Asbury Park Press. “They look at him as a guy with a tremendous amount of upside.

“You look back three years ago with Miles Austin, that’s what they saw. A big, physical receiver with great hands, who they thought still had room for development, so they’re similar in that regard.”

As a senior, Nalbone caught 42 passes for 491 yards and five touchdowns.

This guy seems to be a physical marvel.  He is massive, yet quick, and on top of that he has a well documented history of being a receiving weapon.
