2012 NFL Draft: Eagles Host OL Jeff Allen, LB Bobby Wagner

New, comments

We're getting near daily news about prospect visits to the Eagles now. The latest are Illinois OL Jeff Allen and Utah State linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Wagner is in many ways, everything the Eagles have looked for in a prospect. He was his team captain, was voted MVP of the Senior Bowl and has that "high motor" tag. He started four years at Utah State, is an exceptional tackler and just flat out produced in senior season to the tune of 147 tackles, 4 sacks and 2 INTs. He's somewhat short at 6-0, but he weighed in at 240 and has impressed scouts with his strength and physique.

CBS Sports NFL writer Rob Rang actually has the Eagles taking him with their 51st overall pick.

Jeff Allen (6-4, 307) played RT for Illinois and started all four years there. He was another team captain and also was named to the All Big-10 academic team. Some scouts say he projects as more of a guard at the NFL level, but others say he could he could even have potential to play LT. So there's a bit of debate over him, but overall scouts do all seem to like him. He's projected as second round pick.
