Among the group of players visiting the #Eagles today: LB Jordan Tripp, WR Kelvin Benjamin, and CB Aaron Colvin, per sources.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) April 7, 2014
It was first reported on Sunday that Tripp would be visiting. Benjamin and Colvin are entirely new names to be mentioned amongst the Eagles' pre-draft visits. Wide receiver Cody Latimer also confirmed a visit with the Eagles via his Twitter/Instagram.
Benjamin, 23, is a bit of a polarizing prospect. BGN's Mike Kaye is a fan. Tommy Lawlor of Iggles Blitz is not. In two seasons at Florida State, Benjamin recorded a total of 84 receptions for 1506 yards (17.9 avg), and 19 TD. Benjamin has great size at 6-5, 240 lbs, but he's hardly a great athlete.

Colvin is a player who seems to make a lot of sense for the Eagles depending on where he is available in the draft. An ACL injury suffered at the 2014 Senior Bowl will likely cause Colvin to fall in the draft. He was originally viewed as a second round prospect. Mel Kiper Junior recently mocked Colvin to the Eagles in the third round of his latest mock draft. Colvin won't be able to make an immediate impact for the team that drafts him. The Eagles are likely bringing him in to gauge the progress on his injury.
