Report: Eagles Meet With Top TEs

Posted Apr 5, 2013

TE Travis Kelce

According to a report by CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher, the Eagles sent tight ends coach Ted Williams to work out Stanford's Zach Ertz, San Diego State's Gavin Escobar and Vance McDonald of Rice. The Eagles also brought Cincinnati tight end Travis Kelce in for a visit, per Mosher.

Last season, Escobar led his team with 42 receptions for 543 yards and six touchdowns. A former basketball player, the 6-5, 254-pounder was a first team All-Mountain West performer in each of the last two seasons. In his prospect rankings, USA Today's Tony Pauline lists Escobar as one of the top tight ends in this draft class.

The younger brother of Eagles center Jason, Kelce is a versatile weapon. His freshman year he spent time as a Wildcat quarterback. Last season Kelce caught 45 passes for 722 yards and eight touchdowns.

Adam Caplan of The Sideline View had previously reported that the Eagles held private workouts with both McDonald and Ertz.
