Here’s where everyone else fell on this ranking of Philadelphia Eagles receivers.
5. Quez Watkins
The Philadelphia Eagles landed both Quez Watkins and John Hightower in 2020’s NFL Draft. Hightower was taken 168th-overall in Round 5. Watkins came off of draft boards 32 picks later as pick number 200 in Round 6.
The one thing that Watkins has on his resume that Hightower doesn’t is a touchdown at the professional level. Watkins is also a tad speedier and, arguably, has better hands than Hightower as well. It will be interesting to see who this coaching staff would choose if the last spot on this roster came down to these two.
6. Jhamon Ausbon
With Grimes no longer on the roster, this might be the best dark horse candidate to sneak onto the 53-man roster as one of this team’s wide receivers.
7. John Hightower
If the season started today and John Hightower got left off of the roster, no one should be surprised. He has talent, but he has a long way to go before he can prove that he’s worthy of a roster spot.
