2012 NFL Draft: CB Omar Bolden To Visit Eagles

The Eagles have set up a pre-draft visit with Arizona State CB Omar Bolden, according to Scout.com. Bolden was a physical corner and a productive kick returner... when he actually played. He tore his ACL and missed all of 2011. He also missed a big chunk of his 2009 season.

As Sheil Kapadia points out, Bolden did more bench press reps than any other CB at the combine and ran a 4.5 40 at his pro day. His NFL.com scouting report says he's got second second round talent.

Bolden was a productive three-year starter at left corner for Arizona State. He missed the final eight games of the 2009 season due to injury and sat out in 2011 with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, so his recovery and return are integral to his value. When healthy, he is a big, athletic cover corner with second-round value and the ability to start immediately.

It's not likely that any team takes him that high, but some team probably will take a shot him in the later rounds. Certainly the health of his knee will be a major factor there, so I would expect that the Eagles will give that a good look on his visit.
