The Philadelphia Eagles are leaving no stone unturned in their NFL Draft preparation that includes diving into the quarterback prospects. Ole Miss standout Matt Corral is in town for a visit on Wednesday and played to Philadelphia fans by mentioning rapper Meek Mill on his Instagram story.

Meek Mill's top hit "Dreams and Nightmares" always seems to get the fans going and was the Eagles' walkout song during their Super Bowl run in 2017. Corral posted a picture to let everyone know he was in Philly and it's safe to say his funny caption put a smile on the faces of fans across the city.

The Eagles own the No. 15, No. 18 and No. 51 overall picks in the upcoming draft and have not shown that they are committed to starter Jalen Hurts for the long run. Corral could end up being a legitimate target for the team considering Malik Willis and Kenny Pickett may not be on the board at that time.

Corral shined during his final two seasons with the Rebels, racking up 6,686 passing yards and 49 touchdowns in 23 games played. He also showcased his dual-threat capabilities by rushing for 1,120 yards and 15 touchdowns during that same span. Corral has the upside to be a future NFL leader.

General manager Howie Roseman has proven that he is not afraid to swing big in order to draft the prospects he believes can help the team in one way or another. That makes the Eagles a team to keep an eye on when the 2022 NFL Draft officially gets underway on Thursday, April 28.
