Eagles Shine in Indianapolis at NFL Combine
Feb. 24, 2014
Defensive end Kasim Edebali, offensive lineman Matt Patchan, linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis, defensive lineman Kaleb Ramsey and running back Andre Williams have wrapped up their impressive professional evaluations at the 2014 National Football League Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Patchan, who worked out along with others at the position on Saturday, was clocked among the fastest in the 40-yard dash and recorded the highest vertical jump among offensive lineman.
Williams, who recorded three top performances on the day, followed with the running backs on Sunday.
After Edebali and Ramsey worked out on Monday with the defensive linemen, Pierre-Louis closed out Monday for the former Eagles with the fastest 40-yard dash among the linebackers and finished with three top performances overall.
Pierre-Louis, an All-ACC first-team honoree and the Walter Camp Football Foundation Connecticut Player of the Year as a senior last fall, recorded the top performance among all linebackers at the Combine in 40-yard dash (4.51 seconds). His 128.0-inch broad jump ranked tied for second (with Buffalo's Khalil Mack) among those at the position. Pierre-Louis recorded a vertical jump of 39.0 inches, a mark good for third among all linebackers in Indianapolis. His 28 bench press repetitions ranked tied for third with Iowa State's Jeremiah George.
Patchan, a 6-foot-6, 302-pound offensive lineman, clocked in at 4.81 in the 40-yard dash to rank fourth among all offensive linemen at the Combine. An All-ACC second-team honoree as senior at Boston College in 2013, Patchan's 33.5 vertical jump led all players at the position.
Williams, a 5-foot-11, 230-pound running back who won the 2013 Doak Walker Award as college football's premier running back and was a finalist for the Heisman Memorial Trophy, recorded three top performances in Indianapolis for the Combine - in the broad jump (129.0 inches; third), 20-yard shuttle (4.06 seconds; tied-second) and the 60-yard shuttle (11.62 seconds; tied-third). A unanimous All-America honoree after rushing for 2,177 yards, Williams registered a 4.56 40-yard dash, a 38.0 vertical jump and a 7.27-second mark in the three-cone drill.
Ramsey, a 6-foot-3, 293-pound defensive lineman, recorded the highest number of 225-pound bench-press repetitions among all NFL prospects at the position at the Combine. Ramsey played in 10 games in 2013.

Edebali, a second-team All-ACC defensive end who led the team in tackles for loss (15), sacks (9.5) and forced fumbles (3) in 2013, clocked 4.69 in the 40-yard dash and registered 19 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.
