Potential Targets Remaining for Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles Scouting Report: WR Nelson Agholor

Philadelphia Eagles select Nelson Agholor, WR, USC

The Philadelphia Eagles just grabbed wide receiver Nelson Agholor, the wide receiver from U.S.C. 

This is a fantastic pick. Next to Mariota, I pegged Trae Waynes or Algohor as my favorite Eagles prospects. Eagles fans should be absolutely thrilled.

Agholor had a monster season last year: 104 catches, 1,313 yards, 12.6 yards per catch and 12 touchdowns. 

I covered Agholor in our 7 Round Mock Draft: Agholor reminds me a lot of the recently departed Jeremy Maclin. They are the same height (6’0), ran almost identical 40s (4.42 v. 4.45), are known for being precise route runners, and not known for having elite speed/separation skills. Agholor also checks off a lot of other “Chipisms”: he is a smart, high character guy with versatility, as he is known to be a great punt returner. He has also drawn comparisons to future Hall of Famer Reggie Wayne by numerous media outlets, which isn't too bad if you ask me.

I am telling you, Eagles fans. You are going to love Agholor here. With a combination of Matthews, Agholor and Huff, the Eagles wide receiver group has a very bright future.

Good! I'm pleased with this pick! (Much more pleased than I would have been by trading half the defensive starters, plus picks, for Mariota)
