The NFL Draft might have closed its doors for one more year, but there is still work to be done for the Philadelphia Eagles. According to numerous reports, the team have begun their UDFA signing process, targeting former Wisconsin Badger, Corey Clement.

A sports hernia held Clement to just four games in 2015, in which he was still able to amass 221 total yards..but he bounced back stronger than ever in his senior season. The 5’10, 210 lbs, workhorse back totaled 1,375 yards on the ground and 15 touchdowns in 2016, earning All-Big-Ten honors in the process.
After coming back from the injury, there were genuine concerns over durability. Concerns that were then shattered with 314 carries. With big games against Ohio State and Penn State to add to his arsenal, Clement proved to the world that he could be a workhorse back at the next level..and it just so happens, that’s what the Eagles were looking for..and came out lacking.
We will be publishing a full list of undrafted free agents reported to sign with the Eagles tomorrow..so it’s worth checking back regularly for the latest updates. As of right now, the team are reported to have signed:
WR, Greg Ward Jr, Houston
C, Tyler Orlosky, West Virginia
P, Cam Johnston, Ohio State
TE, Billy Brown, Shepard
S, Tre Sullivan, Shepard
LB, Marcus Oliver, Indiana
