The Eagles had 17 prospects at the NovaCare Complex today with the draft now 15 days away, at least according to the count by James Madison linebacker Arthur Moats.

Among them were safety Eric Berry of Tennessee, TCU defensive end Jerry Hughes, and running backs Toby Gerhart (Stanford) and Jonathan Dwyer (Georgia Tech).

"Philly was real nice," Moats texted to WHSV-TV in Virginia. "Their facilities were top of the line."

Moats also had a chance to talk with Eagles linebacker Akeem Jordan, his former teammate at JMU. Jordan is in his fourth NFL season.

Moats said Jordan told him "how it's a real good organization, and to enjoy this experience, but know it's a business when I get there."

He said the visit included watching the Eagles work out, a meeting with Andy Reid and a film session with his prospective position coach should he join the Birds.
