Here's every 2016 NFL Draft prospect the Philadelphia Eagles have shown interest in

New, comments

Who do the Eagles have their eye on this year?

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 NFL Draft is mere days away. It's known the Philadelphia Eagles will draft one of two players at No. 2 overall: Jared Goff or Carson Wentz. The latter seems to be the favorite. After the Eagles get their quarterback, they still have six other picks to work with. Below is a list of every prospect from this year's draft that the Eagles are known to have shown interest in. The pre-draft buildup period often contains various reports of team interest in certain prospects. If you think I'm missing information, let me know in the comments and 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. Scroll down for chart legend.

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. Former Eagles GM Howie Roseman once admitted they're used to trick the media/fans. No workouts are involved. BGN is keeping track of the visits here. In years under Chip Kelly, the Eagles often didn't draft players that didn't visit.

Senior Bowl (SB) and Shrine Game (SG): These are the players the Eagles talked to at the college All-Star games.

Pro Day: 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.

Workout: Self-explanatory.

Other: Interest that doesn't fit into one of the aforementioned categories.

• Glenn Gronkowski - Grew up an Eagles fan.

• Cody Whitehair - Says the Eagles showed a lot of interest in him.
