Round 4 (139): KD Cannon, WR, Baylor
The Eagles added two receivers this offseason, but I feel they still need another. I don’t trust Nelson Agholor to be quality rotational player so adding KD Cannon is just what the doctor ordered. He’s a poor man’s John Ross. Though not as fast, he still has plenty of speed. Cannon ran a 4.41 at the combine and that speed shows on the field when he blows by the defender for big yardage. The more important part about Cannon is he knows how to find the end zone, racking up 27 touchdowns in just three years.
Overview via NFL.com:
"KD O’Keith Cannon chose Baylor as a top-50 national recruit because of the receiver-friendly offense that then-head coach Art Briles ran in Waco. With the tumult in the program this offseason, the firing of Briles resulted in Cannon writing on Snapchat that “you’ll probably never see me in a Baylor uniform again.” Eventually he cooled off, deciding to finish his collegiate career with the Bears. The team was happy to have him back, as he played well enough to earn first-team All-Big 12 honors (87-1,215, 13 TDs). This was no surprise, since Cannon was a 1,000-yard receiver and honorable mention All-Big 12 and consensus Freshman All-American in his rookie year (seven starts, 58-1,030, eight TDs). Cannon’s numbers were down a bit in 2015 (50-868, six TDs), although he was a second-team All-Big 12 pick after starting every game."
