The Philadelphia Eagles take a chance on a talented WR Josh Imatorbhebhe.

It’s very rare to find a solid starter in the seventh-round, but it’s something that Howie Roseman has actually been very good at during his tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles. Jalen Mills and Jordan Mailata were both seventh-round selections and panned out extremely well.

Mills fell to Day 3 because of off-the-field concerns, but Mailata was simply an athlete that the Eagles felt could prosper at the next level. Josh Imatorbhebhe fits this second type of mold. At his pro day, he posted a ridiculous 46.5-inch vertical leap which would have set the NFL Combine record. He also ran an unofficial 4.48-second 40-yard dash.

Imatorbhebhe didn’t turn heads with his college production, but his potential is undeniable. In this deep class of wide receivers, he’s gone unnoticed, but with the right development staff, he could be a real weapon for an NFL offense.

At Illinois, he showcased his ability to vertically stretch the field as he was a big play waiting to happen. His unbelievable vertical also translated to the gridiron, as he showed off his ability to high-point the football week in and week out.

Seventh-round picks are rarely expected to make the final roster, so a miss here wouldn’t cause much concern. Because of this, it’s worth swinging for the fences on a high ceiling athlete like Josh Imatorbhebhe.
