Philadelphia Eagles fans everywhere no doubt remember Marvin McNutt.

In 2012, Marvin McNutt was taken by the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round of the NFL Draft after a successful career at the University of Iowa. He recorded 170 receptions for 2861 receiving yards, and he scored 28 touchdowns.

The former Iowa wide receiver was facing an uphill battle with getting playing time as DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper,  Damaris Johnson, and Jason Avant were all ahead of him in the depth chart.

McNutt would appear in four games with Philadelphia but didn’t register any stats. He’d wind up on three rosters from 2013 to 2014 (Miami Dolphins, Carolina Panthers, and the Washington Football Team).

Let’s move on. Oh, and by the way, would you have ever believed that the most successful wide receivers the Eagles drafted during this time would have been taken during the Chip Kelly era? Let’s talk about a few, shall we?
