Here are the top four wide receivers on the Philadelphia Eagles roster.
1. DeVonta Smith
This is either confirmation of how great DeVonta Smith is or an indictment on the rest of the Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers. The most recent Heisman Trophy winner hasn’t played a down in the NFL yet, and he’s already the best receiver this team has.
2. Jalen Reagor
With Smith taking the pressure off of Jalen Reagor, last year’s first-round selection, this young man will excel in a role that should have been his from the beginning, playing ‘Robin’ to someone else’s ‘Batman’.
3. Travis Fulgham
Travis Fulgham exploded early and cooled later during the 2020 season, but we’ve since learned that he dealt with some injuries late. He isn’t the perfect receiver by any means, but he’s good enough to start on quite a few NFL rosters. He’s also one of the better options this Eagles team has. If the season started today and Fulgham was healthy, he’d probably start on the outside opposite of DeVonta Smith.
4. Greg Ward
Greg Ward always feels like he’s on some sort of roster bubble, but he keeps hanging around. He also continues to make plays every time the Eagles look in his direction. Conventional thinking tells most of us this. If there was a game to play in the next 24 hours, Ward would be on the roster and this team’s backup sot receiver.
