Eagles WR Riley Cooper has a few things going for him in the competition to take over for Jeremy Maclin. Most notably, his size and his ability as a blocker, something HC Chip Kelly values. Cooper is unlikely to match Maclin’s production, but he’s probably the favorite right now to replace him as a starter.
Cooper has never really been impressive filling in in the past, but he was operating in an offense that wasn't very good last year. He's got plenty of work with Nick Foles as the two mostly ran on the second team last season.
