After doing some digging, we found out who some of the guys the Philadelphia Eagles interviewed at the 2019 NFL Combine are. Names are being released by the media.
The Philadelphia Eagles made the trip to Indianapolis for the 2019 NFL Combine with the same goal that every other NFL franchise had, getting better as a football team and finding some guys that they might be able to make that goal a reality.
In a social media age, everything is made available for public consumption. Combine drills are no different.
We’ve seen several NFL prospects tackle the bench press. We’ve seen guys both ace and struggle in workouts. We also saw linebackers who ran the 40 faster than some wide receivers.
That’s cool and all, but who are the guys the Philadelphia Eagles are actually interested in? That’s what we want to know, correct?
Per Combine rules, each team is allowed access to 60 of the 338 invited prospects for a series of 15 minute interviews. Though we don’t know who all of the prospects are that Philly spoke to, several sources have released the names of quite a few of the guys who sat down with the Eagles’ brass.
Are you curious? We thought you might be.
We begin with the offensive talent.
The running backs:
Philly met with a ton of ball carriers. We, at ITI, gave readers a taste of who some of these guys were last week.
In addition to our report on the Eagles’ official visits with David Montgomery, Trayveon Williams, Devin Singletary, Josh Jacobs, Damien Harris, Bryce Love, Rodney Anderson, Dexter Williams, and Miles Sanders, reports state that we can add a few more now.
Eliot Schorr-Parks of 94 WIP-FM revealed Philly’s interest in Myles Gaskin and the meeting they also had with Travis Homer. Mike Kay of NJ.com told us about the Tony Pollard interview and another that occurred with Ryquell Armstead.
The wide receivers:
So far, we haven’t heard about a ton of wide receiver interviews, but we can report, thanks to Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal, that Philly did, indeed, sit down with David Sills. Take a look:
The tight ends:
Philly sat down wit both of these two in Indy.

The offensive line:
In an attempt to add depth to the O-line, Dalton Risner was granted an interview. Tytus Howard, Fred Johnson, and Ryan Pope also apparently have Philly’s interest as well. Click here for ITI’s scouting report on each of those guys. If you’re wondering where the defensive guys are, have no fear.
Again, all of the names of everyone Philly spoke with haven’t been released. As stated earlier, the Eagles have a maximum of 60 15-minute interviews at their disposal, and at the time of this writing, the defensive backs hadn’t taken the field to begin workouts yet.
More names are sure to come later, but for now, for the Buddy Ryan fan in all of us, we can assure you ‘The Birds’ are in the market for defensive line talent.
That includes defensive ends Shareef Miller and Jordan Brailford. We, at ITI, reported on Miller recently. Add both of those names to a list that includes fellow defensive lineman, tackle Christian Wilkins. Yes ladies and gentlemen, it’s definitely business as usual for everyone at the Novacare Complex.
