Reports: Eagles Held Local Pro Day


In recent weeks, the Eagles have reportedly been spending time with top prospects from around the country. But, according to multiple reports, the Eagles spent Tuesday with some homegrown talent. In all, a reported 20 players visited the NovaCare Complex Tuesday for workouts.

Both Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly reported that Syracuse offensive lineman Justin Pugh was among the players who worked out for the Eagles Tuesday.

The 6-4, 304-pound Pugh was named a first team All-Big East performer in both 2011 and 2012. He is considered by some scouts to be position-versatile, and some have projected Pugh to be drafted as high as the end of the first round.

Pugh recently told Jared Tokarz of NFL Draft Insider that the Eagles are one of five teams with which he has scheduled a private workout.

Mosher also reported that University of Delaware wide receiver Nihja White and linebacker Paul Worrilow attended the pro day. Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that eight Temple players attended. Iowa defensive back Greg Castillo, son of former Eagles coach Juan, was also in attendance.

Berman also noted that Florida defensive tackle Shariff Floyd, Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib and Rutgers cornerback Logan Ryan were three notable names who did not attend, despite being eligible.
