In his first practice, Eagles WR Nelson Agholor ran smooth crisp routes, showed the kind of speed that vaulted him up draft boards late in the process.
Another wrinkle that the USC product who finished his collegiate career with 179 catches for 2,571 yards and 20 touchdowns is his ability to contribute as a kickoff returner. During Tuesday's practice Agholor was the first receiver up, perhaps giving a glimpse of another area in which he may contribute during his rookie campaign.
Agholor joins a receiving corps that has lost its best receiver (DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin) in each of the past two offseasons. We expect him to beat out Riley Cooper, Josh Huff and Miles Austin for a starter’s role opposite Jordan Matthews. If he does, he’ll certainly be fantasy relevant in 2015.
