Philadelphia Eagles: Ranking NFL Draft’s top 20 wide receivers
Former Mississippi State Bulldogs standout Stephen Guidry is a six-foot-four, 190-pound blend of size and speed. He could thicken his frame some for the pro game, but he’ll be a nice mid-round option for someone.
Quez Watkins is a nice option too. He’s a six-foot, 185-pound speedster who ran a 4.36-second 40-yard dash. Keep an eye on him as someone who could leapfrog Guidry.
The last time the Eagles took a wide receiver out of Vanderbilt, things worked out pretty well (Jordan Matthews). One they may be eyeing this season, (Kalija Lipscomb) already has a relationship with new Eagles wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead, having played for him during the 2018 and 2019 season.
Van Jefferson is a six-foot, 200-pound standout that would have been mentioned as someone who could be drafted higher had he been a member of another draft class or had he played in an offense with some better production from the position of signal-caller.
That latter issue makes the 49 receptions, the 657 receiving yards, and the six touchdowns he scored in 2019 that much more impressive.
