- This report is nothing new, but there's even more rumors of top rated OT Eugene Monroe coming to Philadelphia for a private visit with the Eagles. For a shot at drafting Monroe, the Eagles would have to make a move into the top 10 of this year's draft.

- The same article mentions that Alabama OT Andre Smith is also scheduled to visit the Eagles. Smith was dominant in college and may have been a top 5 pick if not for his rather disastrous pre draft period. He flaked out on the combine and looked out of shape during a poor pro day workout. He seems like a major boom/bust proposition.

- PFT is reporting that the drafts' top rated punter, Kevin Huber from Cincinatti, has had a private workout with the Eagles. Sav Rocca was brilliant at times last year earning NFC special teams player of the month honors in September, but seemed to fade a bit at the end with some really poor performances specifically against the Redskins and Bengals. He is still probably learning the NFL game, but at the same time he is 35 years old. If the Eagles could grab a guy that would be a great punter for the next 10 years with a 6th round pick... It might be something worth doing.
