Eagles gearing up for the draft; Boiman visits

-Complied by John McMullen

The Eagles are setting up a number of pre-draft workouts over the past few days.

My former boss at, J.J Pesavento, of Next Level Scouting, is reporting that the Birds have already worked out RB Albert Young of Iowa and have set up workouts for New Mexico State FB Nick Cleaver and North Carolina State WR Darrell Blackman. J.J. also reported that the Eagles were at Norfolk State's pro day.

Meanwhile, Andy Reid and Company had free agent LB Rocky Boimann for a visit today and have set up a meet-and-great with the media later this afternoon. That indicates a deal is likely to get done.

The former Notre Dame star has played in 86 career NFL games with Indianapolis (2006-07) and Tennessee (2002-05).

Last year, Boiman saw action in all 16 games (7 starts) for the Colts, registering 64 tackles and two interceptions.
