While Alshon Jeffery had a really good day, Torrey Smith was even better. Plenty of folks have wondered if the 28-year-old has much left. On Friday, he looked plenty good, making several nice catches.
The first came on an absolute gem of a throw from Carson Wentz. The others were against tight coverage. In 11-on-11s, Smith jumped in front of Jalen Mills and then Patrick Robinson on the next play. Smith showed the ability to come back to the ball, something the Eagles' receivers rarely did last season.

The story said Jeffery was catching everything today and suggested Wentz may have been testing his range with throws behind him and low - but Jeffery snagged them all. On paper, the Eagles have a nice mix at WR. As long as Smith provides a deep threat, Jeffery and Jordan Matthews could play the role of possession WRs.
