Tutu Atwell could join the Philadelphia Eagles and be a Day-1 starter.

Did someone say that they were looking for a little consistency? In 32 career games at the collegiate level, Chatarius ‘Tutu’ Atwell hauled in 139 passes for 2,303 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Representing the same mold of a wide receiver as Moore and Toney, Tutu Atwell is undersized and only weighs 165 pounds, but what he lacks in his build, he makes up for in pure explosiveness.

The NFL is entering a new era in which speed holds more value than any other attribute. Just a decade ago, front offices would laugh at Atwell’s weight, but as offensive coordinators are devising concepts to put their playmakers in space, players like Tutu are becoming more valuable.

He won’t be a WR1 for the Eagles. He’d likely struggle to generate more than seven touches a game, but if Philadelphia wants to add another dimension to their offense, don’t be surprised if their name is linked with Atwell.
