Eagles Scouts Attend Washington's Pro Day

With college pro days wrapping up this week, the Eagles are making sure they are getting their final look at some prospects. Early in the week they were seen at the University of Washington's pro day.

Here's a few of the prospects they likely had their eyes on.

Greg Gaines | DT | 6’2 316lbs | Sr.

Gaines was the winner of the 2018 Morris Trophy as the top defensive lineman in the Pac-12 (voted by opposing team players). The stocky defensive lineman collected 55 tackles (6.5 for loss) and sacked quarterbacks 3.5 times. The Eagles want depth among their defensive line, and Gaines could be a prime candidate for the team to draft as a run stuffer. The team previously met with him at the Senior Bowl, so the interest is there.

Current Projection: 4th-5th Round

Myles Gaskin | RB | 5’10 193lbs | Sr.

Gaskin was the first player in Pac-12 history (and only the 10th in FBS) to rush for 1,000 in four seasons and just the second NCAA-FBS player ever to reach 1,200 yards in four straight. He leaves the program as their all-time leader in career rushing yards (5,323) and career touchdowns, both by rushing (57) and total (62). Even after adding Jordan Howard, the Eagles might be adding another running back before training camp. With Gaskin being projected to be a mid-round pick, he could be a potential target for the Birds.

Current Projection: 4th-5th Round

Taylor Rapp | S | 6’0 200lbs | Jr.

Rapp made the All-Pac-12 First Team in his final season, racking up 59 tackles (6 for loss) along with 5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and 2 interceptions. Rapp will be one of the highest drafted safeties in this year's draft. With Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod getting a bit older, the Birds might be ready to draft their eventual successor - Rapp could be the guy.

Current Projection: 2nd Round

Kaleb McGary | OL | 6’8 324lbs | Sr.

A two-time All-Pac-12 First Team member, McGary excelled in the college game. He was also the winner of the 2018 Morris Trophy (voted by opposing team players) as the top offensive lineman in the Pac-12. He spent all of his time at right tackle, but some believe he could make a transition to the guard position in the pros. Obviously that transition would mean he needs time to adjust, so McGary might not contribute right away to the Eagles if Howie Roseman selected him.

Current Projection: 2nd-3rd Round

Ben Burr-Kirven | LB | 6’0 221lbs | Sr.

The reigning Pat Tillman Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year finished 2018 with 176 total tackles, which are the seventh-most in Washington's history and was the most in NCAA-FBS. He'll likely becoming a great special teamer in the NFL, and could see some time on the field if he transitions to being a box safety.

Current Projection: 7th Round
