Kelvin Benjamin Visits Eagles

Could the Eagles already be looking at the replacement for DeSean Jackson?

According to sources, one of the players visiting the Eagles today was Florida State wide out Kelvin Benjamin.  Benjamin is projected as a late first round or early second round pick in this years draft which is loaded with receivers.

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Benjamin would be a much bigger target then Jackson, but cold still provide a deep threat and big-play ability.  Players with Benjamin’s combination of size, skills, and downfield ability don’t come around often, but he’ll need to be more consistent in the pros than he was in college.

The Eagles also visited with Montana LB Jordan Tripp, who some think can play all three linebacker positions and is a possible mid-round selection.  The Eagles also visited with Oklahoma CB Aaron Colvin, per sources.  Colvin suffered a torn ACL during Senior Bowl practice back in January, he’ll have a long road to recovery to show teams he is fully recovered.
