Monmouth tight end John Nalbone has scheduled a visit with the Eagles. Nalbone is a 6′ 4″ 255 pound with great speed for someone his size. In 2008, Nalbone recorded 42 receptions for 491 yards and five touchdowns. Nalbone hails from the same small school as current Cowboys receiver Miles Austin.
Although most Eagles fans want to see the Birds land Brandon Pettigrew in the first round, there is no guarantee that he will be around when it’s time for the Eagles to pick. Deciding to use the 21st pick on a OT or possibly a WR or RB strengthens the odds that Pettigrew might not be around when the 28th selection comes up. With Nalbone in mind, the Eagles may have an option at TE in the later rounds if they have not yet addressed the position
