List of Known Prospects Eagles Are Hosting for Local Pro Day

On April 17th, the Eagles will host a local pro day, which is for draft eligible players who attend high school or college in the  "designated local region" of the team. These local visits do not count against the team's 30 official pre-draft visit limit. Here's a look at the known players who will be attending the Eagles' local pro day and some quick facts about them:

Temple: Ventell Bryant | WR | 6’3, 200 lbs| Sr. (source)

Bryant was named Player of the Game three times in 2018 (six times total in his college career). He was awarded a coveted single-digit jersey his senior season (Temple awards single-digits to the nine toughest players on the team). He finished his time career at Temple as the college's all-time receiving yards leader and all-time receptions leader.

Current Projection: UDFA

Rutgers: Trevor Morris | LB | 6’1, 228 lbs| Sr. (source)

The King of Prussia native attended Malvern Prep before staying nearby to head to Rutgers. Morris was voted honorable mention All-Big Ten by media members. He finished career ranked ninth in Rutgers history with 335 career tackles, and became the third player in the college's history to register three seasons of 100 or more tackles.

Current Projection: UDFA

Delaware: Vinny Papale | WR | 6’1, 205 lbs| Sr. (source)

The son of "Mr. Invincible" will get a chance to wear an Eagles uniform for at least one day and show off his abilities. Papale recorded 36 receptions for 618 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns in 2018. Papale will need to have an incredible showing at the local pro day to earn himself a chance to sign as an undrafted free agent after next month's draft.

Current Projection: UDFA

Delaware: Troy Reeder | LB | 6’1, 235 lbs| Sr. (source)

Reeder is attracted to wherever the ball is on the field, racking up 131 tackles his senior season, 13.5 of them were for losses. He also added 2.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 interception in 2018. He'll need the local pro day to show the Eagles he's worth bringing in for training camp once the draft concludes.

Current Projection: UDFA

Temple: Michael Dogbe | DT | 6’3, 280 lbs| Sr. (source)

Like the aforementioned Ventell Bryant, Dogbe was awarded a coveted single-digit jersey his senior season (Temple awards single-digits to the nine toughest players on the team). He was named Defensive Player of the Game by the team four times in 2018, and the overall Player of the Game five times. He was recognized as ACC Player of the Week for his game against Maryland, where he recorded 5 tackles (3.5 tackles for loss)along with 2.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. Although the team has Fletcher Cox and Malik Jackson, the depth at the defensive tackle position falls after that (although the team might have found a keeper in Trayvon Hester). If Howie Roseman doesn't address the position early in April's draft, Dogbe has a chance to earn himself the opportunity to fight for a roster spot in Philadelphia.

Current Projection: 7th Round/UDFA

Villanova: Brandon Hitner | OT | 6’6, 300 lbs| Sr. (source)

Hitner appeared in 28 games over four seasons for the Wildcats, primarily at the right tackle position. He participated in the College Gridiron Showcase this year, and is considered one of the top-100 small school prospects in this year's draft. Hitner is expected to be a priority undrafted free agent, and with the Eagles having limited depth at the offensive line at the moment, Hitner has a chance to prove at the local pro day he deserves a shot to make the training camp roster.

Current Projection: UDFA

Toldeo: Ka’dar Hollman | CB | 6’0, 190 lbs| Sr. (source)

The Burlington, New Jersey native tied for first in the MAC with 12 breakups, and finished the 2018 season with 43 tackles and 1 interception. Hollman was a three-year starter at cornerback at Toldeo, and has experience on special teams as well.

Current Projection: 7th Round/UDFA

Villanova: Rob Rolle | DB | 6’0, 190 lbs| Sr. (source)

Rolle was named a STATS FCS Preseason All-American second team selection, and was also named to the CAA Football Preseason All-Conference Team. The Newfield, New Jersey native served as a captain for 2018, and recorded 53 tackles, 2 pass breakups and 1 forced fumble during the season.

Current Projection: UDFA

Princeton: Jesper Horsted | WR | 6’4, 225 lbs| Sr. (source)

Horsted is considered one of the best wide receivers in Princeton's history (and their football program has been around since 1869), finishing his career with the most receptions (196) and touchdown catches (28) in program history. He earned All-America honors and was named a finalist for the Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year Award. Horsted also received first-team All-Ivy League honors 2018 after catching 72 passes for 1,047 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns, helping the Tigers become the highest scoring offense in Ivy League history. Even though he isn't likely to be drafted, Horsted did enough in his college career to at least earn a chance at playing in training camp, and if he performs well at the local pro day the Eagles might be inclined to have him in their camp this summer

Current Projection: UDFA

Delaware: Charles Scarff | TE | 6’6, 270 lbs| Sr. (source)

Scarff finished the 2018 season with 43 receptions for 498 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns. The Lancaster, Pennsylvania native didn't do enough in his college career to be drafted, so he will use this local pro day as his one shot to potentially make a training camp roster.

Current Projection: UDFA

Virginia: Olamide Zaccheaus| WR | 5’8, 190 lbs| Sr. (source)

The Saint Joe's Prep alum will return back to the city he called home for four years when he arrives for the local pro day. Zaccheaus is Virginia's all-time leader in receptions (250), passing Billy McMullen's 210 receptions (McMullen became an Eagle himself). He is also 2nd in school history with 2,753 receiving yards. He received tons of recognition during the 2018 season:

  • Belk Bowl MVP

  • All-ACC (1st)

  • Associated Press All-ACC (1st)

  • Touchdown Club of Richmond’s Offensive End of the Year

  • Pro Football Focus All-ACC (2nd)

  • Athlon Sports All-ACC (2nd)

  • Biletnikoff Award Watch List

  • Athlon Sports preseason All-ACC 2nd-team

  • one of three team captains

His size limits him to being just a slot receiver in the pros, but with Nelson Agholor's future unknown it's better the team start looking for possible replacements now.

Current Projection: 6th-7th Round

Rutgers: Isaiah Wharton | DB | 6’1, 203 lbs| Sr. (source)

Wharton started all 12 games at cornerback in his senior year, totaling 62 tackles (6 for a loss), 8 passes defended, 2 interceptions and a forced a fumble. He was the recipient of the Paul Robeson Award for performance, leadership and dedication to the Rutgers program. The Eagles don't have a need for a cornerback at the moment, so he'll have to blow some minds in order to get a chance at getting signed after the draft.

Current Projection: UDFA

Lehigh: Dominick Bragalone | RB | 5’11, 230 lbs| Sr. (source)

Voted a team captain in 2018, Bragalone rushed for 757 yards on 217 attempts in his senior season, getting into the endzone seven times. He was also first team All-Patriot League for all four seasons in his college career. He is Lehigh's all-time leading rusher (4,324), and he also has the most touchdowns in school history (52).  He'll need a phenomenal showing at the local pro day for the Eagles to want to possibly bring him back in after the conclusion of the draft.

Current Projection: UDFA

Monmouth: Jake Powell | TE | 6’6, 230 lbs| Sr. (source)

The Marlton, New Jersey native was a two-time 1st Team All-Big South selection at Monmouth. In 2017, Powell finished first in the Big South among tight ends in every category, including receptions, yards and touchdowns. 2018 saw a dip in production thanks to only appearing in five games, but in those games he recorded 15 catches for 165 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns. The Eagles already have their three tight ends in place, but if they decide to keep four, then Powell could compete for that position if he has a great showing at the local pro day.

Current Projection: UDFA

Rutgers: Jerome Washington | TE | 6’4, 256 lbs| Sr. (source)

Washington has a history of injuries, but has the potential to become a player who can become a capable backup at the tight end position. He only totaled 11 receptions in his final season, but he ran for 202 yards.  An average of 18.4 yards per catch is insane for a tight end, so that upside is attractive for NFL teams.

Current Projection: 7th Round/ UDFA

Penn State: Trace McSorley | QB | 6’0, 201 lbs| Sr. (source)

Undersized. Runs too much. These are the knocks against Trace, however I do see potential from McSorely. McSorely does have the arm strength to play in the NFL. On film are consistent plays where McSorely works through the pocket while keeping his eyes down field, and delivering a strike when he could have tucked and picked up 7. He has shown flashes of a great deep ball, but his touch still needs some work. If he falls far enough in the draft, Howie and the gang may want to take a look at him as a backup/project to trade down the line.

Current Projection: 7th Round/UDFA

Penn State: Shareef Miller | EDGE | 6’5, 260 lbs| Sr. (source)

Miller has a lot of speed and can get to the QB quick if he makes his man miss, but has trouble with overpowering an offensive lineman to bring more pressure to a QB. The Eagles are in the market for a defensive end, especially since Chris Long hasn't made a decision yet about his retirement.

Current Projection: 4th-6th Round

Villanova: Ethan Greenidge | OT | 6’5, 335 lbs| Sr. (source)

Greenidge started nine games at left tackle as a true freshman. He earned second-team All-Colonial Athletic Association honors as a junior, and as a senior Greenidge was a first-team All-CAA pick in 2018. His final season also saw him get time at both left tackle (seven games) and right tackle (3 games). The Eagles appreciate versatility on the offensive line, so if he impresses enough at the pro day he should be on their radar.

Current Projection: UDFA
