2014 Projections: Forte is a walk-on and there is a large pool for Don Brown to choose from. I would expect him to be a valuable member of the scout team.
How'd He Get Here: Forte was a walk (most likely a preferred) that came to the Eagles back in April.

Uniform History: Jack Conlon a fullback was the first Eagle to don "56" in the last 30's. Kevin Pearson, a very good linebacker wore the #56 during his times at the Heights in the early 90s. Current Boston College running backs coach and recruiting extraordinaire Al Washington wore it as a defensive tackle with the Eagles. Max Holloway a defensive end wore #56 before leaving the Eagles early for the NFL draft, a move that didn't seem to work out for him.
