The Eagles have certainly taken some looks at return men so far in this pre draft process which hopefully means they're looking to fill the hole they had at the spot last year. The latest to visit is Florida International WR T.Y. Hilton.

Hilton returned both kicks and punts at Florida International, bring back 6 for TDs in his career (4 kickoffs, 2 punts). So he could not only take over as the primary kick return man right away, but also spell DeSean Jackson on punt returns when needed.

He was also a good WR at FIU catching 72 passes for 1038 yards and 7 TDs. At 5-10, 183 he's small, but ran a 4.34 at his pro day and has been a pretty consistent producer throughout his career. FIU wasn't exactly playing elite competition, but it is an emerging program and he's had some big games in big spots. He is projected to go as high as the 4th round.

We've got a highlight video of Hilton after the jump.
