Philadelphia Eagles attend pro day featuring massive defensive lineman LaKendrick Ross

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles were reportedly one of many teams to attend LaKendrick Ross's pro day.

According to a report from Damond Talbot, the Philadelphia Eagles were one of 12 NFL teams that attended the pro day of massive defensive lineman and potential NFL Supplemental Draft prospect LaKendrick Ross. Ross, who measures in at a whopping 6-4, 366 lbs, attended college at Virginia University of Lynchburg (USCAA).

Ross reportedly performed well at his pro day. Talbot reports that Ross measured in with a 83.5" wingspan, ran a 1.81 unofficial 10 yard split, and was unofficially timed at a 5.4 - 5.5 40 yard dash time. Ross is entering the 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft because he has been declared ineligible for the 2014 season. If he goes undrafted, Ross will be free to sign with any NFL team that offers him a contract.

The Eagles already have a few big project defensive lineman on their roster. Kelly's affinity for "big people" is hardly a secret. One of those players is U.S. Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva (6-9, 277). The other is undrafted free agent rookie Frances Mays (6-9, 291). Both players are listed at defensive end and have an uphill battle to make the roster. Ross projects to be more of a 4-3 defensive tackle or 3-4 nose tackle. The Eagles also already have a few nose tackles on their roster in the form of starter Bennie Logan along with backups Beau Allen and Damion Square.

Suffice to say, this is probably just a case of the Eagles doing due diligence. Philadelphia hasn't utilized a pick in the NFL Supplemental Draft since 1987 when they drafted Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter. At the least, it's something to keep an eye when the NFL Supplemental Draft rolls around on July 11.
