The connection between Agholor and Kelly was obvious. Kelly wants high character guys who are never content and will bring a work ethic like none other. Nelson Agholor exemplifies all these qualities Chip covets. Even when Agholor speaks, you can tell what a great young man he truly is. Nelson speaks with confidence and a certain type of charisma that is infectious to a football team. Culture beats talent and that’s something Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles really believe in.

Agholor’s fit goes beyond the type of person he is. Nelson has eye popping talent that is obvious to see once he steps onto the field. His fluid movement is really something to behold. This helps his routes which are very crisp and sound. Agholor at times was nearly impossible to cover because of his superb route running ability, defenders looked silly sometimes trying to cover Nelson. Agholor’s speed is very deceptive and can take the top off a defense, something that has been missing since the departure of wide out DeSean Jackson. Nelson meets the height, weight, speed combination Chip looks for in prospects. On and off the field, Nelson Agholor is what the Philadelphia Eagles were looking for when they were ready to make their selection.

With the infusion of Agholor into the teams wide receiving core, the Eagles now have a dynamic young group of wide receivers. Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff, and Nelson Agholor can become a three headed monster for years to come. The Eagles are just scratching the surface of what can be a very special offense. Chip Kelly, since being the head coach, has given the Eagles skill position players the best years of their careers. Just imagine a trio of pro bowl caliber wide outs who are barley starting their careers.

Chip Kelly knew he needed to find players that he wanted, that fit his culture, and that bought into the system. Nelson Agholor is the perfect fit for the Philadelphia Eagles. Agholor can become a very successful player and he would be the first one to tell you that he wont stop working until he fulfills that potential. The Eagles landed a very good player and person last night, big things are on the horizon for Nelson Agholor, and Chip Kelly knows that as well as anyone.
