Forrest Lamp’s workout conducted by Eagles OL coaches
According to NFL Draft Analyst Tony Pauline Western Kentucky OL Forrest Lamp had Eagles OL coaches conducting his pro day workout.
“The big offensive lineman stood on his pro day numbers but looked good during position drills. His workout was conducted by offensive line coaches for the Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals,” Pauline wrote.
Although the Western Kentucky prospect has spent most of his career playing on the outside, some scouts believe Forrest Lamp is best suited on the inside at the next level at guard or even center. The 6-foot-4, 309-pound Lamp started his career at right guard, but quickly shifted to tackle after three games into his freshman season, starting every game since at left tackle for Western Kentucky. As a junior, Lamp was voted as a captain for Western Kentucky, and remained a captain for his senior season as well.
As of late, Lamp has received some first round love the last couple of weeks, but could be drafted anywhere between the late first to the middle of the second round. To Lamp’s benefit, the offensive line class isn’t the strongest, but he represents a hidden gem among some scouts. Lamp had solid outings against bigger schools, such as programs like Alabama and LSU during his career.

Teams interested in getting stronger on the interior, will show heavy interest in Lamp’s skill-set. Evaluators have been impressed with Lamp’s nimble feet, technique, movement skills, and solid hand use. According to PFF, over the last two years Lamp only gave up 26 total pressures on more than 1,200 snaps.
The Eagles currently hold the No. 43 pick in the draft and Lamp definitely falls into that top-50-prospect area of the draft. However, the question remains if Lamp will be there in the second round when the Eagles are on the clock.
