Philadelphia Eagles: 10 draft picks to potentially replace Nelson Agholor
By Dan Parzych
7. Bryan Edwards
Based off the four years spent at South Carolina, it’s easy to understand all of the excitement surrounding Bryan Edwards in regards to being a potential sleeper pick at wide receiver in the upcoming NFL Draft.
With his explosive style of play, Edwards is another young wideout who seems like he could make an immediate impact for Philadelphia’s offense right away as a rookie, unlike some of their previous draft selections over the years.
After catching 44 passes as a freshman in 2016 for 590 yards with four touchdowns, it seemed pretty clear right away that Edwards was heading towards a successful career with the Gamecocks, which was exactly the case.
By catching 190 passes over the last three seasons for 2,455 yards to go along with 18 touchdowns, Edwards is clearly ready to take his game to the next level in the NFL since he seems to get better with experience.
Does this mean Edwards could be another perfect fit on an offense like the Eagles with his set of skills?
Similar to Agholor, Edwards has received plenty of praise for being effective playing in the slot, which seems like the kind of player Philadelphia needs heading into the 2020 season.
