The Eagles will conduct a private workout with West Virginia offensive tackle Selvish Capers in Morgantown this week, a source tells Chris Steuber of scout.com.
Capers (6-4, 308) began his college career as a tight end so it's not surprising that he performed well in the athletic testing at the combine. He ran a 5.14 40-yard dash (sixth among OL) and also tested well in the vertical jump and the broad jump.
He was a three-year starter at West Virginia, but the draft pundits seem to be split on where he'll play in the NFL. Steuber says Capers has the size and athleticism to play left tackle. NFL.com says he probably projects as a right tackle. And Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has him ranked as the 16th-best guard.
In case you missed it, yesterday I published a list of reported Eagles draft visits and workouts. I'll update that same post in the coming weeks so be sure to keep checking back.
