The Philadelphia Eagles’ best choices might be another team’s worst.

Once again, this one is based totally on the eyeball test because as of right now, there’s no evidence that Jalen Reagor deserves to be in the top five on this list.

He’s five-foot-eleven and 195 pounds, so he doesn’t possess the physique of JJ Arcega-Whiteside. He has a long way to go before he’s appeared in as many games as some of the other guys on this list. He hasn’t played in a playoff game, or reached the end zone, or even played in five games yet. Still, there’s a strong possibility here that could be one of the best decisions that this team has made.

We don’t know if he has DeSean Jackson’s playmaking ability or Terrell Owens’ toughness, but we know he has potential. Here’s his endorsement. This is going to be one of the best decisions that Philly made. You just wait and see.

It feels like Jordan Matthews played for this team five times, doesn’t it? Well, it wasn’t quite that bad, but he was serviceable.

In 64 career games with 39 starts, if you include the playoffs, Matthews hauled in 250 receptions for 3,043 yards and 21 touchdowns. 142 of his receptions moved the chains. He even has a 78-yarder on his resume. He isn’t a Hall of Famer. He won’t even find his way into the Eagles Hall of Fame, but when it’s all said and done, there’s only one Eagles wide receiver that has been drafted since 2009 that has had more success in an Eagles jersey than Matthews has had.
