It’s hard to believe but draft season is already in full effect and the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine begins tomorrow. For the Philadelphia Eagles, it’s another opportunity to see draft prospects up close and personal.

While fans are excited to see how fast a player runs in the 40-yard dash, the actual teams are more worried about interviews with prospects and how their medicals check out with team doctors. The intricacies of the combine and what happens behind closed doors are much more important to teams than fans may realize.

But for the sake of being fans, since we are unable to really know what happens behind those doors. It’s time to take a look at some “sleepers” on defense that I believe Eagles fans should be on the look-out for at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine.
