The Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the most active teams to kick off the offseason. They have brought in Saquon Barkley, Bryce Huff, and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. They even traded for Kenny Pickett to be their backup signal-caller.

The Eagles have added quality players from the league and the next big event in the league year is the NFL Draft which takes place next month.

Philadelphia has eight selections in the 2024 NFL Draft, including three picks in the first two rounds. That is plenty of ammo to bring in an impactful player.

Teams around the NFL are setting up pre-draft visits and the Eagles have done the same. Andrew DiCecco of InsideTheBirds.com reported that Philadelphia has a Top-30 visit early next month with USC WR Brenden Rice, the son of Jerry Rice.

The Eagles have A.J. Brown and Devonta Smith as their 1-2 punch at WR but the third spot is up for grabs.

Rice is certainly an intriguing option. He stands at 6'3 and uses that size to his advantage in those contested catch situations. The Arizona native does a good job setting up defenders with his light feet.

Rice recorded 84 receptions for 1,402 receiving yards with 16 touchdowns over the last two seasons at USC.

He has the skillset to fit right in with the Eagles if they decide they want to go that route to add to their stout group.
