There's been plenty of buzz about the Eagles taking a look at quarterback prospects in the past few weeks.

And that continues tonight as a source tells Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post that the Birds hosted Oklahoma State QB Zac Robinson on Tuesday.

As I've pointed out several times, you shouldn't read too much into the Eagles' reported draft visits or workouts. That's just what teams do this time of year.

I recently got clarification from an agent about this. I was told teams are allowed to have 30 official visits from prospects. They can also hold Local Days, where a large group of prospects, who either attended college or high school nearby, can visit. There are no such restrictions if teams want to work out prospects at the prospects' schools or their home towns.

As for Robinson (6-2, 214), he threw for 2,084 yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions as a senior, completing 59.8 percent of his passes. In his four-year career with Oklahoma State, Robinson threw for 66 touchdowns and 31 INTs.

Scouting reports praise him for his athleticism - Robinson's 4.71 40-yard dash was third-best among quarterbacks at the combine.

Draft sites vary in their assessment of Robinson, although none have him higher than the ninth-rated QB.

Wilson also reports that the Eagles hosted Virginia Tech DE/OLB Jason Worilds. Worilds (6-1, 254) had 14 sacks in three seasons for the Hokies.

Earlier today, we continued our draft outlook series, taking a look at the Eagles' need for an interior lineman.
