The Philadelphia Eagles worked out four free agents on Monday, per Howard Blazer. All four players were offensive linemen: Kofi Amichia, Spencer Drango, Kaleb Johnson and Rees Odhiambo.

Amichia was a sixth-round pick by the Packers in the 2017 NFL Draft. The 24-year-old guard spent his rookie season on Green Bay’s practice squad. Here’s a scouting report via NFL.com:

Amichia slipped through the draft cracks due to his weight being in the low 280s at his pro day last spring. The tape shows an athletic lineman with decent length who is able to get to tough angles on the move, drop and anchor when challenged with power. He lacks desired mass but has a shot to make the roster if he can keep his weight up and prove he can play multiple positions.

Drango is a guard/tackle type who was selected in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The Browns drafted him with one of the picks they received from the Carson Wentz trade. Drango made 19 starts in two years with Cleveland before being waived in final cuts this summer.

Johnson, 25, is a guard who originally went undrafted out of Rutgers in 2015. He’s spent time with six NFL teams since entering the league. He’s been on some practice squads and offseason rosters but never a 53-man roster.

Odhiambo was selected by the Seahawks in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft at No. 97 overall. He started in just seven games for Seattle during his two years with the team. Odhiambo has guard/tackle versatility.

I wouldn’t read too much into these workouts as far as what it means for the Eagles. Jason Peters said he expects to play in Week 3 despite having to leave the Buccaneers game early. Philly’s pro personnel department could just be looking into backup offensive linemen so they’re prepared with a list of guys in the event of an emergency.
