Eagles | Team could take a chance on a multi-position player

Larry O'Rourke, of the Morning Call, reports Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Tom Heckert said Monday, April 24, the team could take a chance late and draft a multi-position player in next weekend's NFL Draft. Penn State QB Michael Robinson is one of the multi-position players who could end up as an Eagle. "I like him," Heckert said. "I really do. I think he's a guy who has talent as a quarterback. But he has the talent to also be a wide receiver, a third-down running back, and a returner. He's talented. He's raw as a wide receiver." Heckert said he could envision Robinson as at least a third-string quarterback in the NFL. Another multi-position prospect is Colorado WR/KR Jeremy Bloom. Others who could be on the Eagles' list of potential picks because of their ability to fill a return specialist role as well as play another position include Florida State WR Willie Reid, UCLA RB Maurice Drew and Kansas CB Charles Gordon.
