3. Nelson Agholor
Sometimes it feels like we’re watching the final games of Nelson Agholor’s career, and to be honest, he’s been a little better than he’s been given credit for being. As scary as that sounds, it’s the truth. What’s sad is his best is still awful.
Agholor doesn’t have as many drops as Jeffery, yet he’s the poster child for team drops. That’s not a knock on the fans or their knowledge of the game. It’s just an interesting fact because, in all honesty, Agholor’s issues and the blame he often receives are all his fault and his fault alone.
If second-round draft selections are supposed to be valuable contributors, how much more important to the team should a first-round selection be?
At this point in his career, Agholor should be one of Carson Wentz‘s go-to guys. Instead. he disappears for long stretches of game action. He can’t get open, and when he does produce, it isn’t enough. For the season, he has 32 receptions on 54 targets, and he averages less than nine yards per catch (8.8).
On behalf of Eagles fans everywhere, there’s one more thing. Can someone tell Doug Pederson to stop using that jet sweep? Everyone is sick of seeing it.
