If the Eagles were to not re-sign Cooper or Maclin, or anyone else, their starting receiving would be a lot weaker. At number two behind Jackson, the Eagles would start Jason Avant. Avant has been a reliable receiver for a few years now, but lacks explosiveness. The number three spot would be even more of a mystery. The Eagles would start one of, Damaris Johnson; Brad Smith; or Arrelious Benn. My favorite of those three would be Benn. Benn was acquired by the Eagles last offseason in 2013, from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Benn ran a 4.42 forty at the NFL Scouting Combine and has the raw skills that could make him quite a threat. For Benn to be a starter he would need to work on his route running and catching, but he definitely has the tools.

    I agree about Decker He Is Way Overrated. But when you say we would have to give up a lot for Watkins to pick him out of the Draft so a better option might be Evans I get kind of confused. Don’t you think Evans is a possible top ten if not at least a top 15 draftee. I mean don’t you think it would take a lot to get either of these guys? Just kind of wondering what you think of Evans draft stock or I guess why you think he will fall. Thanks
