The Philadelphia Eagles have been impressed by the work that rookie WR Jordan Matthews has done in camp. He has caught everything that has been thrown in his direction and is proving to be a playmaker on the field. LeSean McCoy feels that the Eagles picked up the best receiver of the crop.
“That rookie we got, (Jordan) Matthews, is looking real good,” McCoy said Tuesday, via Philly Magazine. “There’s been a lot of talk about this draft class being deep at wide receivers, but I’m real confident in this one being the best of the class. It’s still early, you got to go through the season and see how he does, but he looks amazing.” – NFL.com
The NFL Draft was deep at the wide receiver position. Matthews could have easily been drafted in the first round in a different year. He slipped over to the second round and fell to the Eagles and Chip Kelly’s offense. Matthews could prove to be the top receiver in the draft, but we all will have to wait and see how he produces at game time. The potential is there though.
