Preparations for the 2019 NFL Draft are officially underway for Philadelphia, as Eagles scouts are down in Florida watching East-West Shrine Bowl practices and interviewing players after practice is over. On Monday, the Eagles spoke to three players. Today, Eagles scouts were seen interviewing six players.
Ole Miss: Zedrick Woods | S | 5'11, 203 lbs | Sr.
Woods appears to be a guy that can fit into the Jenkins mold as an in the box safety, who fills run gaps and tackles around the line of scrimmage.
Morgan State: Joshua Miles | G | 6'6, 310 lbs | Sr.
Long arms and athletic - two phrases you want to hear for an offensive lineman. Miles had played Left Tackle at Morgan State and was academically ineligible in 2017. After getting his GPA up to a 3.3 he was able to play in 2018, and he attributes that set back to allowing him to work on himself and become a better overall football player in the head and with technique. An underdog.
Akron: Ulysees Gilbert | LB | 6'1, 230 lbs | Sr.
Currently projected to be a 7th rounder, Gilbert has good size at 6'1 230lbs. In his sophomore and Junior campaigns Gilbert put up 121 and 140 tackles respectively. Returning for his senior season, he put up a mere 85 tackles.
Texas A&M: Daylon Mack | DT | 6'1, 320 lbs | Sr.
Mack is not the pass-rusher that Khalil Mack is, and there's no real family ties there. However, Mack has the ability to reset lines on running downs to allow others around him to clean up. Seems to be a good fit with Fletcher Cox.
Rice: Jack Fox | P | 6'2, 224 lbs | Sr.
Maybe the Eagles will want to bring in some competition for Cameron Johnston during Training Camp, but Johnston had an amazing year so its doubtful Fox would even come close to winning a camp battle in Philadelphia.
Kansas: Daniel Wise | DT | 6'3, 290 lbs | Sr.
Currently projected to be a 7th rounder, a guy who can get off the ball quickly and uses leverage to hold his ground in the middle.
