Which Philadelphia Eagles WRs will end up making the final roster?
For the Philadelphia Eagles, the wide receiver position is (and always has been) an interesting topic of discussion. In back-to-back drafts, the team has selected a wide receiver in the first round, but the problem is still as prevalent as ever.
Jeremy Maclin remains the last Eagles wide receiver to post a 1,000-yard receiving season. He accomplished this feat back in 2014 when he was catching passes with Mark Sanchez as his quarterback. It’s been that long for Eagles fans.
Still, there’s hope that this year will be different. Head coach Nick Sirianni has a background of working with receivers and even coached the position for the Chargers in 2017. DeVonta Smith is coming off of an incredible Heisman Trophy-winning season and Jalen Reagor improved with Jalen Hurts under center in 2020.
The Eagles opted to carry a whopping seven wide receivers last year and five the year before that. Philadelphia does not have enough talent at the position to keep seven guys, so they’ll probably keep five or six.
Now all that remains is finding out who those five or six receivers will end up being. The first three, however, appear to be locks to make the roster.
