The Eagles worked out 20 local college prospects on Tuesday, including Syracuse offensive lineman and Council Rock South Rock product Justin Pugh.

Pugh is projected by some draft analysts to be selected in the second round later this month. The 6-foot-4, 304-pound prospect played tackle in college but is being scouted by many teams to play guard in the NFL.

Pugh's Syracuse teammate, Ryan Nassib, was not among the invited. The quarterback from Malvern Prep is expected to be drafted in the earlier rounds later this month. The Eagles met with Nassib at the Senior Bowl. Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, a Philadelphia native, was also not in attendance, but the Birds are scheduled to work the top-rated defensive tackle out on Friday.

Iowa cornerback and St. Joseph's Prep product Greg Castillo also worked out for the Eagles. Castillo is the son of former Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo.
