Report: OL Duvernay-Tardiff Visited

Posted Apr 9, 2014

As the Eagles continue their rigorous pre-draft preparation, the team is scheduled to meet with offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, according to a report from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan.

Duvernay-Tardif played collegiately at McGill University, located in Montreal. The 6-foot-5, 321 pound lineman played offensive tackle at McGill, but many scouts are convinced that he would adapt to play anywhere on the offensive line. The Eagles already have versatile offensive linemen on the roster in Allen Barbre and Matt Tobin, but depth on the offensive line may be an area that the Eagles look to address in the draft.

Duvernay-Tardif is considered to be the top prospect in the 2014 CFL draft, but he is projected to be a mid-round pick in the NFL Draft. In 2013, he won the J.P. Metras Trophy, given to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Most Outstanding Lineman.
