Virginia offensive tackle Eugene Monroe will make a pre-draft visit with the Eagles on Monday at the NovaCare Complex, a league source said yesterday.
Monroe's visit is a signal that the Eagles are at least considering an attempt to move into the top 10 picks of the first round. Both general manager Tom Heckert and coach Andy Reid said last week that they believe they have the trade ammunition needed to move to the top of the draft board. The Eagles have 12 picks, including the 21st and 28th overall selections in the first round.
Monroe, 6-foot-5 and 309 pounds, is considered by many draft experts to be the second-best offensive tackle in this year's draft behind Baylor's Jason Smith. It's impossible to find a mock draft that doesn't have Monroe being selected in the top 10.
