Iggles Blitz does a great job of listing all of the prospects that the Eagles brought in for visits or attended their Pro Day or private workout. By looking at the positions that they have concentrated their efforts on, you get a quick feel for where we will be concentrating our draft picks. Here is a summary by position of where they've been devoting their time. The first number in parentheses is the count of official visits, the second number is the count of proday/private workout attendees:
DE - 15, (4,11) RB - 14, (5,9) DT - 10, (4,6) OG - 10, (3,7) OT - 8, (3,5) WR - 5, (4,1) CB - 5, (3,2) LB- 4, (0,4) S - 3, (3,0) TE - 3, (0,3) OC - 2 (0,2) QB - 1, (0,1)
slightly surprised at only looking at 2 C. Also only 4 LB with none coming into Nova Care. Only 3.S, but all three came in for visits.
not surprised by WR and CB. I think most fans and people covering the team think we are better in those spots than we actually are.
one other thing. Shouldn't the team demand an answer from C Long prior to the draft? That could have an impact.
To me, we go Best player at a loosely defined position of need. To me, all but QB and TE are fair game.
