NFL Draft 2018: Shaquem Griffin among 63 players Eagles met with at the Combine

See who the Eagles are checking out.

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The 2018 NFL Combine has been over and free agency is about to begin. But before we close the book on this year’s “underwear Olympics” entirely, here’s a list of 2018 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 15-minute interviews (out of 336 prospects who attended). Not all meetings leak out but I’ve tracked down some — both formal and informal — that did.

Remember, just because the Eagles interviewed a player doesn’t necessarily mean they’re automatically going to draft that process. This is all just a part of the information-gathering process.

QUICK THOUGHTS

  • Positions the Eagles showed the most interest in: offensive tackle (12), tight end (10), running back (10), wide receiver (10), linebacker (7), safety (5). Unsurprisingly, those are positions where Philadelphia can especially afford to add more young talent.
  • I still think OT is the favorite for the Eagles’ first.
  • It’s cool to see the Eagles met with Shaq Griffin. That dude killed the Combine. Only having one hand obviously hurts his stock but he’s not the kind of kid I would bet against. It’d be interesting to see the Eagles take him on Day 3. At the very least, he should be able to help out on special teams.
