The Eagles need a running back, and Dalvin Cook is explosive.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The 2017 NFL Draft is jam packed with running back prospects. And Florida State’s Dalvin Cook is one of the tops, projected to go in the first round by many outlets.

Florida State held its pro day Tuesday. Cook showed quite well, running the 40-yard dash and showing out in drills after a surprisingly poor combine showing in some of the same drills.

Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles, a team strongly in the market for a running back, stuck around and have a private workout with Cook, sources told Tomahawk Nation.

The Eagles’ first rounder is pick No. 14, which is right in front of the Indianapolis Colts at Pick 15, which is where SB Nation’s Dan Kadar projects Cook to go in his latest mock draft released Monday.

Cook is the best running back in Florida State history, and arguably in ACC history. He was also the best back in Florida as a senior, and has basically dominated top competition for the last four years with great burst. In 2016, he improved his hands, which had been somewhat of a question.
