NFL Draft prospect Dalvin Cook is in Philadelphia, Pa. for a pre-draft workout with the Philadelphia Eagles. With the addition of two new wide receivers, they could use their first-round draft pick on a running back.

Cook, who is considered the best running back available in the upcoming NFL Draft, will try to convince the Eagles brass to pick him. If he went to the Eagles, it would be the first-time that he played for a team outside of Florida.

He spent three seasons at Florida State, before declaring for the NFL Draft following their bowl game with the Michigan Wolverines. In his final campaign, he had 1,765 rushing yards with 19 touchdowns.

As a college back, he averaged 6.5 yards per carry. The Eagles averaged 4.1 yards per carry last season.

The Eagles have been linked to adding a running back. However, since they are cap-strapped, it was hard to add one during free agency despite speculation that Latavius Murray would sign with them.

Murray and Carson Wentz, the Eagles quarterback, had been working out in California together. Murray recently signed a free-agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings.

Ryan Mathews was the Eagles leading scorer with 661 yards on a 155 carries. He averaged 4.3 yards per carry and had eight touchdowns.

Mathews was the only back to have more than a 100 carries. Darren Sproles — who is entering the final year of his contract — had 94 carries for 438 yards and two touchdowns.
