Eagles Select USC WR Nelson Agholor

Agholor should fill the massive hole left behind by Jeremy Maclin. At 6’0″ – 198, Agholor doesn’t have the prototypical WR1 size that many fantasy owners covet, but I think players like TY Hilton and Antonio Brown are starting to change minds. In the mold of Reggie Wayne, Agholor wins with excellent route running and an ability to gains yards after the catch. Although he ran a 4.45 at the combine Agholor hasn’t shown to be a straight line burner. Rather, he uses his speed to accelerate out of his breaks gaining separation on defenders and looks smooth as silk doing it.
Drafted higher than many draftniks predicted, Agholor couldn’t have asked for a better landing spot and his fantasy value should get a big boost because of it. When healthy Sam Bradford is an above average NFL QB with the ability to make all the NFL throws. In Chip Kelly’s system, Agholor will have the opportunity to be a high volume WR playing on the outside in the Eagles offense. Don’t sleep too long on this kid in your dynasty drafts.
