01:08 PM ET 04.12 | The Eagles were scheduled to bring Dee Milliner in for a pre-draft visit this week, but the team canceled the meeting, the former Alabama cornerback told The Inquirer on Thursday. Milliner is considered the top cornerback prospect in this year's NFL draft. The Eagles have a glaring need at the position, but may be narrowing their list to linemen with the draft two weeks away. They brought in most of the top-rated players over the last two weeks, including tackles Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher, outside linebacker Dion Jordan, defensive tackles Sharrif Floyd and Star Lotulelei, defensive end Ziggy Ansah and quarterback Geno Smith.

They brought in Geno Smith for an interview but not this guy, strange.
