The Philadelphia Eagles need to remedy the wide receiver conundrum.

If you’re tired of hearing about the Philadelphia Eagles‘ quarterbacks, then fear not. This might be the story for you, the media, and fans alike. The wide receiver position definitely deserves its fair share of attention.

Despite drafting now-second-year receiver Jalen Reagor in the 2020 NFL Draft (and two more prospects on the selection meeting’s third day), Philly has more questions than answers at the position.

At the moment, they house a pair of veterans in DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery, but both are older and could be allowed to walk to free up cap space. After those two, there’s a list that won’t scare anyone. A quarterback turned wideout, Greg Ward, is the best of the bunch. Jalen Reagor has the tools to be a difference-maker, but he hasn’t matured into the guy most Philadelphia Eagles fans have been waiting to see.

That being said, general manager Howie Roseman has his work cut out for him with the 2021 NFL Draft right around the corner. The great news for him and the Eagles’ front office is the selection meeting will be smothered in talented options from top to bottom.

We at ITI have scoured the collegiate landscape, and as a result, we found three under-the-radar prospects that could help the Philadelphia Eagles offense and possibly become diamonds in the rough.
