Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman are among members of the Philadelphia Eagles down at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama this week evaluating some of college football's best prospects that will be available in the 2016 NFL Draft. Here's an updated list of names the Eagles have shown interest in so far, starting with new additions.

• Kansas State guard Cody Whitehair (Second interview) - [Source]
• Baylor defensive end Shawn Oakman - [Source]
• Maryland defensive back Sean Davis - [Source]
• Boise State safety Darian Thompson - [Source]
• Indiana offensive tackle Jason Spriggs - [Source]
• Utah state outside linebacker Kyler Fackrell - [Source]
• LSU offensive tackle Vadal Alexander - [Source]
Interesting to see the Eagles interview Wentz (and Whitehair) twice. It's worth noting Jeffrey Lurie is one of the few owners down at the Senior Bowl this year. He supposedly didn't attend last year. Does Lurie want to get a close look at potential new franchise quarterbacks? Or maybe he's there seeking the new player personnel executive he's been talking about?
Speaking of quarterbacks, new Eagles head coach Doug Pederson thinks QBs, offensive line, and defensive backs make up the strength of this year's draft class.
Oakman is that big dude you may have seen before as a meme. The Baylor defensive end measures in at 6-9, 280 pounds. He's from Philadelphia. He's projected to go in the third round by CBS Sports.
Thompson has really impressed NFL scouts, according to Ian Rapoport.
BGN's Ben Natan wrote about Spriggs in November. Read his scouting report.
Ohio State's Braxton Miller reportedly impressed those in attendance at practice. He hasn't been linked to the Eagles (yet). Read more about him here.
