5. Wide Receiver
How could this be? The Eagles have arguably the best wide receiver group in the NFC East division. Even in comparison to the rest of the league, the Birds look like they have a top-tier wide receiver group. While that may be true for this year, a lot can change in 2020. Alshon Jeffery will be around for the next couple of years, but the 29-year-old wideout obviously has his limitations.
Then, there’s Nelson Agholor in the slot, who is currently on his fifth-year option. Seeing how much average slot receivers got paid in free agency this year, Agholor’s price tag could get very expensive for a guy who has never eclipsed 800 yards during a single season in his career.
The Eagles recently acquired the 32-year-old speedster, DeSean Jackson as well. As they anticipate him being here for the next three years, you have to take into account that Jackson has missed quite a lot of time over the years. The last time Jackson played a full season was back in 2013. Recently, he played 12 out of 16 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year.
Behind the Eagles’ top three wideouts, there are nothing but question marks. Mack Hollins mysteriously missed all of last year and has proven more on special teams than he did on offense. Shelton Gibson has three catches for 59 yards in his career thus far. It may not seem like a need, but the Eagles should absolutely consider drafting a wideout this season.
