Would it be smart for the Eagles to consider selecting two wide receivers in the draft since this year’s class is loaded with talent?
While the argument can be made that Philadelphia should address all positions in need of improvement in the draft, it wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world to take advantage of the strong receiving class either.
If the Eagles were to strike right away with a receiver in the first round, they could be in great position to add another during the final day of the draft, someone with the potential to take on an underrated role.
During his final two seasons at Minnesota, Tyler Johnson made a name for himself in the passing game by catching 164 passes for 2,487 to go along with 25 touchdowns, causing all sorts of problems for opposing defenses within the Big Ten.
Making the transition to the NFL may take Johnson a little longer compared to most receivers from this year’s class, but once again this could be a great opportunity for the Eagles to work with an underrated star with potential.
Since Johnson’s route running and athleticism are already two of his best traits, the Minnesota wideout could provide some intense competition for other members of Philadelphia’s roster.
