Nelson Agholor

The Eagles first round pick makes his NFL debut tomorrow against the Colts. Nelson Agholor has looked the part of a first round pick in camp as he’s mixed in more and more with the first team offense as training camp has progressed, so he must have a good grasp of the offense early on. This may be the first step in Agholor ascending to the starting line up.

Agholor should see at least a quarter or two worth of action so hopefully he gets a good amount of targets. His play will obviously be effected by who’s throwing him the ball so hopefully the quarterbacks play well and give him a chance to make plays. Agholor will also get a chance at returning kicks, which could be a way for him to see the field early as a rookie. Look out for his big play ability and burst that he showed at USC.
