Reports: Eagles Meet With Two Prospects


According to Adam Caplan of The Sideline View, Florida State linebacker/defensive end Cornelius 'Tank' Carradine visited with the Eagles Monday. At 6-5 and 251 pounds, Carradine is scheme-versatile. He played defensive end with the Seminoles, but can also stand up as a rush linebacker in a 3-4.

Carradine started last season strong, but tore his ACL in late November and missed the final two games of the season. He finished the season with 80 combined tackles, including 13 for a loss, and 11 sacks.

Carradine wasn't the only prospect spending time with the Eagles Monday. Per Caplan, the Eagles also worked out Rice tight end Vance McDonald.

Last season McDonald (6-5, 260) caught 36 passes for 458 yards and two touchdowns. NFL Network's Mike Mayock lists McDonald as the draft's fifth-best tight end.
