According to a report by Tim McManus of Birds 24/7, the Eagles have scheduled visits with Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher and Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer also reported that Floyd work out for the team on April 5th. McLane added that Floyd's workout does not count as one of the team's official visits. The date for Fisher’s visit was not available.

Fisher is considered to be one of the top tackle prospects in the draft. While he played on the left side in college, many experts believe Fisher has the skill set and athleticism to play on either side. He was named a first team All-MAC selection as a senior.

Floyd is a Philadelphia native who starred at George Washington High School before making his mark as a member of the Florida Gators. Last season, Floyd totaled 46 combined tackles, including 13 for a loss, three sacks and a forced fumble. He is considered to be a fit as either a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme or a defensive tackle in a 4-3.
