Eagles general manager Howie Roseman appeared on today’s 94WIP morning show and confirmed that consultant Tom Donahoe preferred North Carolina State defensive tackle Alim McNeill, a bigger-bodied prospect than Milton Williams, the defensive lineman the Eagles got when they traded back from 70th overall to 73rd.

McNeill is listed at 6-2, 317 pounds. Williams, from Louisiana Tech, is listed at 6-3, 284. The Lions selected McNeill 72nd overall.
