It’s all systems go in Philadelphia as the Eagles continue to prepare for the upcoming NFL Draft. Two first round prospects and potential Draft targets are set to have pre-draft visits with the birds.

After attending the Pro Day of Paxton Lynch and hosting a private workout that was interrupted by poor weather, the Memphis Quarterback is said to meet with the team on a private visit. After some impressive scripted throws witnessed by an Eagles scout at his Pro-Day, it seems as though there is a lot of interest in Lynch.

The other player having a pre-draft visit with the Eagles is this year’s projected top running back prospect Ezekiel Elliott. The former Ohio State Buckeye has been a name commonly linked with the Eagles ever since the departure of DeMarco Murray and has landed in Philadelphia in many Mock Drafts.

Elliott has already met with the Dallas Cowboys and is also reportedly going to meet with the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears.
