This year’s draft class is expected to be one of the best when it comes to wide receivers, and there has even been talk surrounding the Eagles possibly using two picks at the position, depending on who ends up being available.

Since Philadelphia already helped address the cornerback position a bit through free agency, it wouldn’t come as a surprise at all if they ended up considering a receiver for their first pick of the draft.

Plenty of great prospects should still be available once the Eagles are on the clock, and even though the argument can be made that Tee Higgins will probably be available in the second round, Philadelphia will need to decide if they’re willing to take that risk.

During his final two years at Clemson, Higgins managed to catch 25 touchdown passes, and he seems to have the kind of athletic ability that would result in an immediate impact for the Eagles in the passing game.

Not to mention, Higgins has received all sorts of high praise for his ability after the catch to go along with impressive blocking skills, showing why this potential selection deserves consideration from Philadelphia come April to provide a much-needed boost at receiver.
