According to Andrew Greif of, the Eagles are set to bring in former Oregon Ducks defensive end Taylor Hart for a pre-draft visit. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and defensive line coach Jerry Azzinaro are obviously familiar with Hart from their time together at Oregon. Hart noted that he spoke with Kelly and Azzinaro at the 2014 NFL Combine:

"It was obviously cool to see (Philadelphia coaches Chip Kelly and Jerry Azzinaro) again at the combine, it had been a while but it will be nice to go out and see them again. It's nice to always know the head coach and the defensive line coach pretty well, so I don't know if it makes it easier but it's nice to see them again. It's meeting a lot of other coaches, too, so it's just nice to have them be the first one.

Hart, a senior, has played for Oregon since 2010. In that time he's racked up 173 total tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 16 sacks, and 5 forced fumbles. CBS Sports currently projects Hart as a 6th or 7th round pick. Here's Hart's spider graph. He has nice size at 6-6, 281 lbs.
