Hakeem Nicks Believes Jeremy Maclin Is Eagles No. 1 WR

According to New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks, Jeremy Maclin is the Philadelphia Eagles number 1 wide receiver.

“They’ve still got the same guys on the offense that has been making plays. DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy. They lost their No. 1 receiver in Jeremy Maclin but, you now, DeSean Jackson’s been there for a while, Jason Avant’s been there, so they’ve got guys on offense that can definitely make plays.”

    Nicks is 100% right. If you look at target rates, route-running, and consistency, Maclin was definitely the Eagles No. 1 receiver. Jackson has more raw talent than Maclin, but Maclin is the better and more consistent player.
