Add the draft's top two running backs and wide receivers to the list of prospects that are making their way through Philadelphia this week to visit the Eagles.
Dalvin Cook, the former star running back for Florida State, arrived in town on Thursday for a visit, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. LSU RB Leonard Fournette and Clemson WR Mike Williams are also visiting with the team on Friday, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. MMQB's Albert Breer reports Western Michigan WR Corey Davis is meeting with the Eagles on Friday as well.
It's no surprise that the team would have such interest in the rushers. For one, RB is among the team's biggest needs. Cook and Fournette are NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock's top-rated RBs in the 2017 draft, and NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks believes the Eagles are among the best fits for Cook's talents.
Analyst Lance Zierlein has Philly taking Cook at No. 14 overall in his latest mock draft. However, the Eagles might have to move up the board for the second year in a row if they want a chance to land Fournette. All 5 of the most recent NFL.com mock drafts have Fournette being picked before the Eagles are on the clock.
"Cook lacks the power that you may find with some running backs in this year's draft, but he is a homerun hitter with a resume featuring monster games against his most highly regarded opponents," Zierlein writes in his draft profile for Cook.
Wide receiver might not be at the top of the list of needs for the Eagles after the signings of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, but adding Williams, fresh off a solid pro-day showing, or Davis to a mix that also includes Jordan Matthews would probably be just fine with QB Carson Wentz. Davis and Williams rate as Mayock's top two WRs in the 2017 draft.
