This is another prospect flying under the radar, but Burbridge is a guy who could bring some grit and toughness to the Eagles’ receiving corps. The Eagles’ two best receivers are currently Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor, who was ranked as the worst wideout in the NFL by Pro Football Focus for 2015. Without a doubt, the Eagles need to bring in some wide receiver depth this offseason and Burbridge could make a solid candidate.
As a senior at Michigan State, Burbridge caught 85 balls for 1,258 yards and seven touchdowns. He isn’t the fastest guy, but what he lacks in speed, he makes up for in attention to detail. His routes are solid, he works well in space and he’s physical in every phase of the game.
Burbridge wouldn’t be a slam dunk, but he’d certainly bring some stability to an Eagles receiving corps that needs some help. With a solid outing at the Combine, Burbridge may be able to separate himself from the pack.
