The 2017 NFL Combine is over and free agency is here. But before we close the book on the Combine completely, here's a list of 2017 NFL Draft prospects the Philadelphia Eagles met with in Indianapolis. Keep in mind all 32 NFL teams are each allowed a total of 60 formal interviews (out of 330 prospects who attended). Not all the interviews leak out but I’ve found 29 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.

Probably not a coincidence that the Eagles interviewed a lot of players at major positions of need: wide receiver, cornerback, running back. This year’s draft class also happens to have a lot of talent and depth at those positions (especially the latter two) so that’s a big factor as well.

A number of these players could be in play when the Eagles pick at No. 14.

Davis, Williams, Ross are the three names Mike Mayock suggested Philadelphia should take a long look at in the first round. Ross’ record-breaking 40-yard dash may have really boosted his stock.

Lattimore might not make it to No. 14, but Jones and Tabor could be options there. Howie Roseman loves Florida players and Jim Schwartz loves hyper competitive attitudes at corner. Tabor would seem to fit the bill there, though his 4.6 40-yard time isn’t ideal. King is a player who had a really strong Combine.

There are no shortage of intriguing options at running back. Cook is the only player getting hype in the Eagles’ range but he didn’t have the greatest Combine. He’s still an awesome player on tape.
