NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with 11 undrafted rookie free agents following the 2017 NFL Draft. Here's what you should know about them. Click on the links to read more if you're interested in reading more.

C Tyler Orlosky

“Has the natural power to face off and compete against NFL nose guards, but lack of length and leverage could put a cap on where teams are willing to draft him. Functional in space. Lack of lateral quickness isn't a big enough weakness to prevent him from making a living as an NFL starter. Though limited, he has average starter's potential.” —- NFL.com

RB Corey Clement

“Clement's lack of durability combined with a lack of value as a third down option could hurt his draft stock, but negative feedback from inside the program could be just as big at this point. Clement has the size and athletic ability that will help him land on a depth chart, but he appears to lack the fluidity, decisiveness, and vision needed to become a dependable, productive starting running back. His best fit might be as a "committee back" in a one-cut running scheme.” —- NFL.com

DT Charles Walker

“Disruptive defensive tackle with the initial quickness and power to become a factor for a one-gapping, upfield front if he can ever put it all together. Despite his flashes, Walker's career starts can be counted on one hand and 2016 was a complete loss of a season. NFL personnel men are likely to get harsh reviews from the Sooners coaching staff and teams will need to do their work on Walker's concussion situation, but his athleticism and potential give him a chance to become an NFL starter.” — NFL.com

TE Billy Brown

“The two years of production look good, but his level of competition is far from what he will see on the next level. Brown will struggle to separate as an NFL receiver and teams may consider trying him as a move tight end.” — NFL.com

DT Winston Craig

No scouting report available. CBS Sports ranked Craig as their 324th overall prospect and 29th defensive tackle. Craig, 21, measures in at 6-4, 290 pounds.

P Cameron Johnston

“Rugby style kickers simply don't translate well to the NFL because the league doesn't employ that system, but Johnston has a shot. As a placement kicker, he has displayed decent hang time and a functional operational time to get rid of the kick. The combine gives him a shot to show he's more than just a rubgy punter.” — NFL.com

S Randall Goforth

“Goforth is a heady competitor with adequate foot quickness and an ability to handle coverage responsibilities from off-man and zone. Goforth's lack of size, plus-speed, and consistent tackling create a challenge in making a roster and he will likely have to take the undrafted free agent route into a camp.” —- NFL.com

OT Victor Salako

“Two-year starter at left tackle who utilizes his size and frame to compensate for his athletic deficiencies. Stiffness in lower half prevents him from playing with good balance and leverage in both running and pass blocking. While he has the size that will intrigue teams, his lack of functional athleticism could make it tough to find a long-term fit on the next level.” — NFL.com

WR Greg Ward

“Dual-threat quarterback who consistently found ways to make plays and win. Came into college as a wide receiver and won't have to step blindly into new position. Good speed and has the fluid hips to shake defenders in space after the catch. Coaches praise him for his toughness and football intelligence. Background as quarterback allows him to identify coverages quickly as a wideout. Has some punt return experience at Houston.” — NFL.com

CB Jomal Wiltz

“Wiltz is a terrific athlete with size limitations that will hamper him at the next level. He offers potential as a nickel or dime back and can play over the slot receiver, but Wiltz is a prospect who must produce on special teams this summer.” — Draft Analyst

S Tre’ Sullivan

No scouting report available. Sullivan is unranked on the list of CBS Sports draft prospects. The 23-year-old rookie is listed at 6-0, 200 pounds.
