Florida State running back Dalvin Cook isn’t the only skill position player visiting with the Eagles ahead of the draft.

Friday will find several top prospects in Philadelphia to meet with the Eagles, including one of Cook’s peers at the top of the running back list. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that LSU running back Leonard Fournette is also visiting with the team.

The Eagles currently have Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles and 2016 fifth-rounder Wendell Smallwood on the depth chart at running back. Drafting a running back high could lead to another move as they sort out how everyone fits.

Philadelphia may also opt for a wide receiver in the first round. Rapoport reports Clemson wideout Mike Williams will also be in on Friday while Albert Breer of adds Western Michigan’s Corey Davis to the mix.

The Eagles signed Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith as free agents, but last year’s group was so underwhelming that continuing the overhaul of the position group seems like a realistic possibility in Philly.

    Dalvin Cook or trade back and pick up a CB. Eagles have shown zero ability to draft a WR in the first rd.

    If they could get Williams (they won’t be able to) he and Wentz would end up one of the greatest QB/WR tandems in league history, especially considering that Jeffrey would be opposite Williams. It would be an incredible show. Draft Williams if at all possible and let the rest of the chips fall as they may. Fournette not a bad consolation; I suppose. But praying Wentz has Williams to throw to along with Jeffrey, Smith (meh, to be honest), Agholor, and give Matthews one more shot. Be deep at the position and surround Wentz with these weapons.
