Might the Philadelphia Eagles find an underrated receiver in Round 7?

The Philadelphia Eagles could use one of these three, high-ceiling WRs. Might one of them get a look?

Josh Imatorbhebhe, Illinois

In the seventh round of the draft, teams often take chances on prospects with high potential. The expectation for these players is low, so there’s little risk of upsetting the public with a miss. In recent years, the Eagles have actually hit on a few seventh-rounders in Jalen Mills and Jordan Mailata.

Josh Imatorbehebhe fits this archetype. He recorded a vertical jump of 46.5″ at his pro day which would have broken the NFL combine record, and he offers decent speed with a physical play style. His college production was extremely underwhelming, but why not take a shot on the Big Ten prospect?

Trevon Grimes, Florida

A member of a Florida Gators offense that is sending a number of players to the NFL, Trevon Grimes is another player whose potential outweighs his production. Standing at six-foot-four, he has exceptional height and uses it to be a threat in the red zone.

Grimes was a former five-star recruit but has never been able to piece it together after high school. Still, his physical attributes make him an interesting target in the last round of the draft.

Tim Jones, Southern Miss

Another Conference USA product is on the list. Tim Jones was a consistent contributor to a Southern Miss program that boasts a current Eagles wide receiver in Quez Watkins. Jones lined up primarily in the slot during his four-year career in college and he progressed each and every year.

At six-foot-one, he’s on the taller side for a slot receiver, but this height could appeal to Nick Sirianni and his coaching staff.
