Now that the 2016 NFL Combine is over, here's a list of 2016 NFL Draft prospects the Philadelphia Eagles met with in Indianapolis. Keep in mind each team is allowed a total of 60 interviews. Not all the interviews leak out but these are some of the names that did.
Remember, just because the Eagles interviewed a player doesn't necessarily mean they're highly interested in that prospect. This is all just a part of the information-gathering process. With that said, here's what I tracked down. Don't forget to check out which prospects the Eagles spoke with at this year's Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Game.

We've already talked about Lynch, the offensive line prospects, and the wide receiver prospects a lot this offseason. One of the new names of interest here is Bell. The Ohio State safety measures in at 5-11, 199 pounds. He played 36 games for the Buckeyes over three seasons. During that span he recorded 115 tackles, one sack, nine interceptions, 15 passes defensed, and one defensive touchdown. Here's his spider graph:
Another new name is Alexander. The Clemson cornerback caught people's attention by saying he's the best at his position in the entire draft. It's hard not to like his confidence.
"I'm 22, but I'm ready to compete with anybody. There's nobody more dedicated than me, who's put more time in or is more of a competitor than me. ... I'm here prepared. I'm telling you I'm the best corner in this draft class," Alexander said.
"I speak facts only," he said.
It's funny because most of these players line up with Philadelphia's biggest offseason needs.
