NFL Draft 2014: Philadelphia Eagles Prospect Interests Tracker

Who do the Eagles have their eye on?

Jeffrey G. Pittenger-USA TODAY S

The 2014 NFL Draft is officially less than a week away. While we sure don't know who the Eagles will draft, we do have an idea of who they're interested in. The pre-draft buildup period often contains various reports of team interest in certain prospects. What I've done here is compiled all of those reports into one location. I've also cross-referenced them with what I think is some fairly useful data. If you think I'm missing information, let me know in the comments. Please include your source.

Keep in mind that misinformation is a large part of the draft process. Teams will purposely not show interest in players they like because they don't want to tip their hand. At the same time, just because the Eagles are showing a lot of interest in a player doesn't mean it's just a smokescreen. It's all a guessing game. But here's what we do know.

Visits: The Eagles are allowed 30 pre-draft visits. These are the players who have come in to the team's facility for an official visit. Visits are often used for medical testing and interview time. Eagles GM Howie Roseman even admitted they're used to trick the media/fans. No workouts are involved. BGN is keeping track of the visits here.

Senior Bowl: These are the players the Eagles talked to at the Senior Bowl.

Combine: Each team is allowed 60 interviews at the NFL combine.

Pro Day/Workouts: These categories are lumped together. Pro day interest is a little hard to gauge because it's hard to know who exactly the coaches are there to see. I did my best to mention the big names. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly attended a total of 12 pro days.

Chip Opponent: Last year Chip Kelly showed interest in drafting players who performed well against him in college. See: Zach Ertz, Matt Barkley, Jordan Poyer. It's possible Kelly could go that route again this year. These are some of the players that performed well against Kelly. Subjectivity comes into play here. Using Dave Mangels' three-tiered system, I gave players either X (Everyone gets a star), XX (Solid but unspectacular), or XXX (Stud performances).

Chip Recruit: These are the players Chip Kelly personally recruited coming out of high school, via Dave Mangels.

Top HS Recruits: Eagles scouts have confirmed they do consider high school success when evaluating players. I marked down which players the Eagles have shown interest in who were also top high school football recruits (via Jimmy Kempski).

Other: Unspecified interest that doesn't fit into one of the aforementioned major categories.

• Kyle Fuller: Specifically introduced to Chip Kelly by Bill Davis.

• Telvin Smith: Said in a podcast that the Eagles are showing interest in him.

Marcus Smith: Seen talking to Chip Kelly and Rick Minter at Louisville Pro Day.

• Brett Smith: Seen talking to Bill Musgrave.

• Devon Kennard: Eagles talked to him at East-West Shrine Game.

• Storm Johnson: Reported interest.

• Ronald Powell: Reported interest.

• Gerald Ford: Reported interest.

• Jordan Matthews: Picture of him with Chip Kelly.

• Wilson Van Hooser: Has been in contact with Eagles.

• Daniel Sorenson: Phone interview with Eagles.

• Seantrel Henderson: The Eagles reportedly don't have him on their board.

Pro Day Column Key:

CK = Chip Kelly (Head coach)
BD = Bill Davis (Defensive coordinator)
PS = Pat Shurmur (Offensive coordinator)
JA = Jerry Azzinaro (DL coach / Asst. head coach)
JS = Jeff Stoutland (OL coach)
BB = Bob Bicknell (WR coach)
TW = Ted Williams (TE coach)
JP = Justin Peelle (Asst. TE coach)
JL = John Lovett (DB coach)
BM = Bill McGovern (OLB coach)
RM = Rick Minter (ILB coach)
MUS = Bill Musgrave (QB coach)
DS = Duuuuuuuuce Staley (RB coach)

(w) = Attached to a coach's name. Signifies that coach worked out the player.
