Jordan Matthews, Wide Receiver

I’m personally not on the Jordan Matthews hype train just yet. I’m holding off on the absurd comparisons for now, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like the kid. Jordan Matthews has immense potential. The Eagles 2014 second round pick has certainly impressed during OTA’s, but I want to wait till the pads come on before anointing him as the next Terrell Owens. The good news is, Matthews has all the tools and work ethic to become a star. His progress so far has been amazing for a rookie. Eagles starting Wide Receivers, Jeremy Maclin, and Riley Cooper, have their own individual issues. Maclin is coming off ACL surgery and the jury is still out on Cooper being a capable starter. Matthews has a real shot to end the season as the main starter. Head Coach Chip Kelly has his own vision for the type of Wide Out he wants, Jordan Matthews fits that mold. I have no doubt Matthews will succeed, and I think he can get it done this season as well.
