Now that the 2019 NFL Combine is essentially over, let’s take a look at which draft prospects the Philadelphia Eagles reportedly met with.

Keep in mind that all 32 NFL teams are each allowed a total of 60 formal 15-minute interviews out of 338 prospects who attended. Not all meetings get reported but I’ve tracked down some that did leak out.

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

The Eagles did meet with at least two of their five 2018 draft picks (Dallas Goedert and Josh Sweat) at last year’s Combine.

QUICK THOUGHTS

  • The Eagles are really doing their homework on running back prospects, as they should. Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles are set to be free agents. Philly needs to make a serious effort to fix this position.
  • The Eagles also met with Sills and Howard at the Senior Bowl. They met with Brailford at the Shrine Game.
  • Wilkins is my guess for the Eagles’ first-round selection. He didn’t absolutely kill the Combine; maybe that allows him to fall to Philly’s pick.
