PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s a big offensive prospect day for the Eagles.

You can add LSU running back Leonard Fournette, Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams, and Western Michigan wideout Corey Davis to Florida State running back Dalvin Cook and Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin on the list of offensive skill players reportedly visiting the Eagles before the 2017 NFL Draft.

According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Cook, Fournette, and Williams will all visit with the Eagles on Friday.

Fournette, at 6’0″, 240-pounds, ran an elite 4.51 40-yard dash. At LSU, Fournette played just seven games last season due to injury, but as a sophomore he rushed for 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns on 300 carries.

Williams, at 6’4″, 220-pounds, did not run the 40-yard dash at the combine and elected to run it at Clemson’s Pro Day. He ran a 4.56, which is very good for his size. Williams caught 98 balls for 1,361 yards and 11 scores last season at Clemson, including an 8-94-1 line in the National Championship win over Alabama.

Albert Breer reports Davis will visit with the Eagles, as well.

Davis (6’3″, 210 pounds), 22, had at least 75 catches, 1,400 yards, and 12 touchdowns in three straight seasons at Western Michigan. Davis did not workout at the NFL combine or at Western Michigan’s pro day, as he’s recovering from an ankle injury.

The Eagles signed Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in free-agency to short-term deals, but continue to look to bolster their offense and give second-year Carson Wentz a full arsenal of weapons.

Running back Ryan Mathews is expected to be released, saving Philadelphia $4 million on their cap.
