Texas tight end Jermichael Finley worked out for the Eagles yesterday, a source close to the situation said.

Finley, who turned 21 last month, left Texas with 2 years of eligibility remaining; some experts felt he should have stayed for more seasoning.

But despite a disappointing 4.82-second 40-yard clocking at the NFL Scouting Combine, Finley, 6-5, 243, seems to rank reasonably high in an underwhelming group of draft-eligible tight ends. He is believed to be an excellent pass catcher with a high upside.

The NFL draft is April 26 and 27. *
