North Carolina receiver to visit Eagles

North Carolina wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is on a whirlwind tour of NFL teams and will visit the Eagles today, according to Profootballtalk.com

Nicks was in Carolina on Monday and St. Louis on Tuesday. He is scheduled to vist Tennessee on Thursday and then conduct a joint workout for Indianapolis and Baltimore on Friday, according to the site.

Scout.com ranks the 6-1, 210-pound Nicks as the fourth-best wide receiver on the board. The scouting report says Nicks is a good route-runner and is a big, physical target but lacks the elite speed to be a downfield threat.

He set school career records for receptions (181), receiving yards (2,840) and touchdown catches (21). He also holds the school single-season records with 12 TDs receptions and 1,222 yards receiving in 2008.

The Eagles also are scheduled to meet with Iowa cornerback Bradley Fletcher, a league source told PFT. Fletcher is also set to meet with Dallas and has met with the New York Jets, Atlanta and Indianapolis.

The 6-foot, 196-pounder is projected as a third-round pick. He started only one season at Iowa, with 60 tackles, three interceptions and 10 pass breakups, after serving as a part-time starter as a sophomore and junior.

The Birds were among a bevy of teams checking out Cleveland State basketball player J'Nathan Bullock, also according to PFT. The 6-5, 240-pound Bullock has not played football since high school, but is considered a potential prospect at tight end.
