Scouting Report. . . player. 52. Pick Analysis. DJ Chark. 2

First off, the Eagles certainly deserve plenty of credit for addressing their need at wide receiver in the draft after bringing on a ton of speed, led by Jalen Reagor in the first round.

Philadelphia certainly took plenty of heat for passing on other talent that was available in the first round over the TCU star, but with Reagor’s ability to contribute as well on special teams, this could turn out to be a great selection for Doug Pederson’s squad.

After seeing all of the injuries that took place for the Eagles last season in the wide receiver department that included DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery, Philadelphia realized the importance of adding depth to the wide receiver position for 2020 to avoid another situation like last season.

And while early signs at the moment point to Jackson and Jeffery hopefully returning to their usual ways in the passing game, the Eagles also realize their key veterans aren’t getting any younger.

Based off his rookie campaign in 2018 when he caught just 14 passes in 11 games without a single touchdown, DJ Chark was flirting with the bust label before breaking out last season while earning Pro Bowl honors.

If Chark managed to catch 73 passes for 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019 despite all of the issues on offense for the Jaguars, just imagine what the LSU product could do in an offense run by Carson Wentz.
