2017 NFL Draft: Temple quarterback among prospects who attend Eagles local pro day

The Eagles worked out some local guys.

NCAA Football: Mid-American Conference-Temple at Houston Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

As they do every year, the Eagles hosted a local pro day for players from the Philadelphia area along with players who attend nearby schools (Villanova, Temple, etc.). Note that these local visits do not count against the team's 30 official pre-draft visit limit. This year the list of local players the Eagles hosted includes some of (but not limited to) the following 2017 NFL Draft prospects.

QB P.J. Walker, Temple

The 22-year-old Walker completed 56.9% of his attempts at Temple for 10,668 yards (7.3 average), 74 touchdowns, and 44 interceptions. He also ran for 771 yards and nine scores in college. Walker projects to be undrafted. The Eagles could look to sign him as a camp arm who can push for a practice squad spot.

WR Chris Godwin, Penn State

We wrote about Godwin recently.

This isn’t the first time the Eagles have shown interest in Godwin. Philadelphia also put him through a private workout earlier this offseason.

The 21-year-old Godwin measures in at 6-1, 209 pounds. In three years at Penn State, he posted 154 receptions for 2,421 yards (15.7 average) and 18 touchdowns.

Godwin projects to be a Day 2 pick. It’s expected he’ll be selected as early as the second round.

LB Brandon Bell, Penn State

We wrote about Bell earlier this offseason.

CBS Sports projects Bell to be a late Day 3 pick or a priority undrafted rookie free agent signing. The Eagles could be looking at him as a depth player who can also contribute on special teams.

Our friends over at Penn State SB Nation blog Black Shoe Diairies wrote about why Bell was arguably the team’s defensive MVP last year.

CB Taylor Reynolds, James Madison

A native of Newark, Delaware, Reynolds measures in at 6-1, 190 pounds. He had 55 tackles (5 for loss), 14 passes defensed, and two interceptions in his redshirt senior season. He projects to be undrafted.

LB Anthony Williams, Utah State

Williams is from Philadelphia which is why he attended this workout despite playing for Utah State. He measures in at 6-1, 245 pounds. Williams put up 96 tackles (6.5 for loss), two sacks, and a forced fumble during his senior season. He projects to be undrafted.

LB Austin Calitro, Villanova

Calitro measures in at 6-0, 239 pounds. In four years with the Wildcats, he had 219 tackles (26 for loss), three forced fumbles, and two interceptions. He projects to be undrafted.

S Anthony Cioffi, Rutgers

The Scarlet Knights safety reportedly runs a 4.3 40-yard dash so he has some speed. Also worked out as a wide receiver at Rutgers’ pro day. He projects to be undrafted.

LB Najee Harris, Wagner

The 6-1, 224 pound linebacker is a native of Norristown, Pennsylvania. He projects to be undrafted.

DE Praise Martin-Oguike

Lost two years of his college football career after being accused of rape. The charges were ultimately dropped and he was reinstated to the team. Finished with 123 tackles (27.5 for loss), 17.5 sacks, 10 forced fumbles, and one interception. Projects to be undrafted.
