After conducting a private workout for Cal quarterback Jared Goff to start the week, the Eagles are scheduled to hold another for North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz on Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Caplan reported.
Goff and Wentz are generally considered the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft. That the Eagles are showing interest after making significant offseason investments into quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel is interesting.
Maybe the Eagles just want to gather information while making teams with early quarterback interest sweat a little. Or, maybe these workouts will help convince the Eagles and new head coach Doug Pederson — a former NFL quarterback himself — that they have to take either Goff or Wentz.
The Eagles hold the No. 8 pick in the first round after swapping first-round picks with the Dolphins. The Browns at No. 2 and the 49ers at No. 7 are seen as potential quarterback landing spots.
Four weeks out, there’s still a lot of guessing involved with this year’s draft. Pegging the Eagles as another potential quarterback destination makes things even tougher to predict.
