Here’s the bottom half at the top ten.
By now, some of you are either standing up and cheering at some of the names you’ve already read or you’re back in the mindset that the best option for Philly is taking two wideouts in the selection meeting. Then again, who’s to say that they don’t look in both areas? Here are the bottom half of the top ten free-agent wideouts.
Tell the truth. How long have you thought about Larry Fitzgerald being in an Eagles jersey? Now, that he’s 37 and at the end of a hall-of-fame career, it may not be as attractive as an idea as it once was. Still, he’s the same leader he’s always been, and he still catches everything hurled in his direction.
Now, you know you can’t say that about most of the Eagles receiving corps, can you?
Here’s another wild card. We’ve all seen the good and bad from Demarcus Robinson, but whenever guys who are 25 and younger are available and they have potential, you have to do your due diligence and give them a solid look.
This one’s highly unlikely if you’re an Eagles fan. As strange as it may sound, most ‘Birds’ fans would probably be more comfortable with seeing Greg Ward in the slot at this point. Randall Cobb has value, but his best days as a pro are clearly behind him.
There isn’t a skill that an NFL wide receiver needs that Devin Funchess doesn’t possess. We just haven’t seen him put all of those skills together at the same time. Philly just hired Aaron Moorehead. Maybe he’s the guy that can bring the best out of the guys Philly already has and the best out of the guys that they bring in.
It’s doubtful that Funchess will be one of those guys, but it isn’t impossible if he’s glossed over early in the signing period.
With each passing season, Josh Gordon‘s name seems to lose some of its aurae, and it’s hard to keep track of whether or not he’s serving a suspension and what it’s for. Still, as a football fan, you want to pull for this guy and hope that he puts the broken pieces of a once-promising career back together because if he does, he’s still one of the game’s best (even with the layoff).
