With NFL draft coverage set to take over everything in the near future, I thought it would be worth checking in on a few smaller school prospects who the Eagles might be showing some interest in.
The Eagles have reportedly invited Middle Tennessee State DE/LB Chris McCoy in for a private workout. According to Scout.com he'll visit April 8th.
A two-year starter for the Blue, the 6-foot-3, 251-pound McCoy was named the Sun Belt Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year this past season, after he recorded 64 tackles, 20 for a loss and seven sacks. McCoy participated in the East-West Shrine Game this offseason and produced three tackles during the game. But as good as McCoy was as a senior, he didn’t receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine. McCoy will compete at Middle Tennessee State’s Pro Day on March 18th and will try to elevate his late round status.
