2015 NFL Draft – 20th Overall Pick – Eagles Draft Nelson Agholor

With the 20th pick of the draft, the Eagles draft Jeremy Maclin’s replacement at receiver in Nelson Agholor.

Algholor doesn’t have great┬ásize at 6′ but has good route running skills and hands. He’ll also contribute on punt returns.

He joins a high-powers offense and could contribute statistically right away. For the other Eagles players, it helps the case of Sam Bradford and should take some heat off Jordan Matthews. Algholor will never be a top-tier WR option but his pick could allow Matthews to be. In Algholor’s case, he probably won’t crack the top two tiers of receivers in rookie drafts.
