Another selection meeting nears. We are less than two weeks away from seeing Commissioner Roger Goodell approach the podium and place the Philadelphia Eagles on the clock. At the time of this story's release, the Birds own eight choices over the NFL Draft's three-day span. There's plenty of talent on the board to choose from.

The draft represents an opportunity for Philly to elevate its roster. The needs are well-known. Everything from depth along the O-line to reinforcements in the secondary has highlighted one conversation or another.

We don't know when the Eagles plan to satisfy their need for a pass rusher. Two things are, however certain.

First, this draft is full of talented edge rushers. Some can even be found late. Second, if three days pass and one hasn't been added, we'll all hear a different type of conversation. Fortunately, the Eagles are doing their due diligence in scouting some impressive pass rushers. It appears they even flew out to do so.

Eagles defensive line coach Jeremiah Washburn reportedly held a private workout with Colorado State's Mohamed Kamara.

As the bow is placed on another week, we have seen and heard reports of the pre-draft visits the Eagles have reportedly hosted. Laiatu Latu, Chop Robinson, and Marshawn Kneeland are among the edge rushers they have hosted. Recently, they have explored other methods of scouting.

Inside The Birds staff reporter/content producer Andrew DiCecco reports defensive line coach Jeremiah Washburn "traveled to Fort Collins earlier this week to privately workout Colorado State EDGE Mohamed Kamara."

The former Ram has been given everything from late-third-round to fifth-round draft grades. He's a six-foot-one, 248-pounder who ranked among the best sack artists of the 2023 college football season.

He notched 56 tackles, 13 sacks, and two forced fumbles during his final NCAA season. NFL Draft analyst Lance Zierlein gives him a grade of 6.15 meaning he's a good backup with the potential to develop into a starter.

Luckily Philly has a few veterans (Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat, Bryce Huff, and Nolan Smith) that he can learn from. Keep an eye on him. Philly is obviously doing so.
