The Eagles have been scouting & scheduling workouts with a number of defensive ends in this pre-draft period. According to Chris Steuber, the latest is reportedly Kansas State DE/DT Jeffrey Fitzgerald.
Playing just one-year at Kansas State after transferring from Virginia - where he was a two-year starter - after the 2007 season, the 6-foot-4, 270-pound Fitzgerald had a strong senior campaign for the Wildcats and recorded 40 tackles, 10 for a loss and seven sacks. Fitzgerald participated in the East-West Shrine Game this offseason, but was one of the notable snubs from the Scouting Combine last month. At Kansas State’s Pro Day on March 3rd, Fitzgerald showcased his athleticism and strength to NFL scouts in attendance by running a 4.83 in the 40, generating a 35-inch vertical and benching 225 pounds 21 times.
