So I know all you draft junkies will appreciate this list that Walterfootball.com has put together (with the help of a Charlie Campbell). I was personally intrigued by a couple of names on there, so here's the full list of the players that the Eagles have met with so far and in what venue/capacity:

Here is the link if you want to check out any other teams. Eagles along with the Ravens seem to have met with the most players so far. I personally don't know much about college players but intrigued to see Matt Barkley on there as well as Kenjon Barner (maybe the rest of the offensive staff was getting to know him). I've seen some of these names on some of the Mock Drafts you guys have made so I'm sure this list means more to some of you guys. What do you make of it ? What names on here interest you ? Do the names on here tell you anything about the type of players the Eagles might be targeting ? I understand that the actual picks might or might not come from this list, but it's a good starting point, and something to refer to and re-visit after the draft as well.
If you would have to do a Mock Draft for the Eagles based on these players only, who would you select ? Here are the Eagles picks, you can trade back if you chose to:
|1st Round - Own Selection (No. 4 Overall)|
|2nd Round - Own Selection (No. 35)|
|3rd Round - Own Selection (No. 67)|
|4th Round - Own Selection (No. 98)|
|5th Round - Own Selection (No. 129)|
|7th Round - Own Selection (No. 194)|
|7th Round - From Cleveland, (No. 196)
Acquired in David Sims Trade
|7th Round - From Tampa Bay, (No. 202)
Acquired in Arrelious Benn Trade
Have at it !!!
