The Philadelphia Eagles admitted that their draft board wasn't going to change dramatically based on what went down at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. But how potential top picks performed in the spotlight at Lucas Oil Stadium is still a piece to the draft puzzle. 

Here's a look at 11 potential future Eagles and how they fared in Indy. 

 

Stock rose

Dee Milliner (CB, Alabama): His stock was already growing, and only one defensive back ran faster than Milliner (4.37). He also fared well in the vertical jump (36.0). And remember that he was dealing with a labrum tear. With the Detroit Lions picking right behind Philly in the No. 5 spot, a team desiring Milliner could sell the farm to the Eagles in order to move up into their slot.

Sharrif Floyd (DT, Florida): The Eagles are now in desperate need of support up front, and Floyd might be versatile enough to be a 5-technique tackle opposite Fletcher Cox. He ran a very impressive 4.92 40-yard dash and stood out in on-field drills. 

Dion Jordan (DE/OLB, Oregon): He put on a show with a 4.60 forty and a 122-inch broad jump. The Eagles have bigger needs, but they could fall in love with a pass-rushing threat like Jordan, especially since he played for Chip Kelly at Oregon. 

Barkevious Mingo (DE/OLB, LSU): Right now, it's either Mingo or Jordan. Mingo won the combine by ranking in the top three at his position in the 40-yard dash, the broad jump and the vertical jump.

Lane Johnson (OT, Oklahoma): He could have done better on the bench, but Johnson proved to be the most athletic offensive lineman in the draft by dominating the 40, both jumps and the three-cone drill. 

Geno Smith (QB, West Virginia): He already appeared to be the best fit for the Eagles under center, but then he cemented that by blowing the rest of the quarterbacks out of the water with a 4.59 40-yard dash. It'd be shocking if Smith didn't get picked in the top 10. 

 

Stock dropped

Star Lotulelei (DT, Utah): The potential top pick was forced to withdraw from drills after doctors diagnosed him with a heart condition. Now, his performance at Utah's pro day on March 20 will be crucial. The Eagles probably prefer Floyd at this point.

Damontre Moore (DE/OLB, Texas A&M): He was terrible, finishing dead last at his position in the bench press and running a weak 4.95 forty. He didn't run a second time because he said his hamstring tightened up. Moore probably wasn't going to be picked fourth overall anyway, but that's been solidified now.

Johnthan Banks (CB, Mississippi State): Only a 4.61 in the forty while Milliner and Desmond Trufant were impressive. That could mean Banks is there when the Eagles are on the board early in Round 2. 

 

Stock didn't change

Luke Joeckel (OT, Texas A&M): He entered the weekend as probably the highest-rated left tackle in the draft, but Joeckel failed to really stand out in every drill he took part in.

Tyrann Mathieu (CB, LSU): Lots of critics were happy with Mathieu's performance. His 4.50 forty was solid, and his attitude rubbed people the right way. Still, he lifted the bar just four times.
