There are second-round receivers that should interest the Philadelphia Eagles.

Most Philadelphia Eagles fans can agree that Greg Ward shouldn’t be seen as the long-term slot receiver for the Birds. Sure, he’s been a great story and has delivered a few prime moments, but his ceiling is capped. Having a quality slot receiver is essential in today’s NFL, a league where three-receiver sets are more commonplace.

If a wide receiver isn’t the play at 12, no one should be surprised if Philly gets one early in Round 2. There will be a ton of options.

Kadarius Toney is one of those options. He projects as an inside receiver and is absolutely electric with the ball in his hands. He’s seen as the shiftiest player in this draft and for good reason. Defenders look flat-out silly trying to tackle him, and he has the speed to turn the corner on defenses.

The Eagles have already met with him and will likely consider the SEC product as a second-round target with the 37th-overall selection. While Toney isn’t a number one receiver, he’s certainly an exciting potential addition to the Philadelphia offense. Here are two more that the Birds have a shot at landing in Round 2.
