While the moves the team made in free agency so far mostly addressed the defensive side of the ball, it looks like getting a new offensive weapon could be a part of Philadelphia's plans for the upcoming draft.
Vanderbilt wide receiver Earl Bennett is expected to work out for the Eagles by tomorrow at the team's practice facility, and after declaring for the draft following his junior season, he could be valued as high as a first round pick.
Former Vanderbilt WR Earl Bennett (#10)
At 6 feet and 209 pounds, Bennett has good size and is known for his sure hands, route running ability and work ethic. While he is not the most explosive receiver in the draft in terms of speed, he recently clocked in at 4.48 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the 2008 Scouting Combine, a respectable time for an NFL skill position.
Bennett would be a good fit for the Eagles because he also has experience as a kick and punt returner, a position of need for Andy Reid's team.
