The Eagles will have Arizona State cornerback Omar Bolden in for a visit, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com.

Bolden (5-10, 202) missed last season because of a torn ACL. According to NFL.com, he played exclusively on the outside during his college career and is a physical, press corner. Bolden led all cornerbacks with 24 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press at the combine.

However, he did not run the 40 in Indy, opting to instead wait for his Pro Day, which took place earlier this month. Per Doug Haller of the Tuscon Citizen, Bolden ran an unofficial 4.5.

"I still have a long way to go," Bolden told Haller. "I haven't played football since 2010. I'm just anxious to get back on the field."

Bolden also suffered a season-ending injury after four games in 2009. But when on the field in 2010, he was productive, earning unanimous All-Pac 10 first-team honors. Bolden also made plays as a kickoff returner, averaging 30.8 yards per return and scoring twice in his college career.

The biggest factor in determining Bolden's draft stock will be his knee, but he's listed as a mid-to-late round prospect by most draft sites.

In case you missed my post yesterday, the Birds also reportedly have visits scheduled with LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers and Montana cornerback Trumaine Johnson.

And for those of you wondering whether I'm going to keep track of all the visits in one place (like previous years), I am. Look for that later this week.
