Round 7 (230) KD Cannon, wide receiver, Baylor
With their last pick, the Eagles pick a poor man’s John Ross though not as fast KD Cannon. 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.
"“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 and decided to finish his collegiate career with the Bears. The team was happy to have him back, and he played well enough to earn first-team All-Big 12 honors. Cannon was a 1,000-yard receiver and honorable mention All-Big 12 and consensus Freshman All-American in his rookie season. Cannon’s numbers were down a bit in 2015, but he still earned second-team All-Big 12 pick after starting every game.”"
