Is there any wide receiver worth drafting on the Eagles roster? The Eagles wide receiver corps this season is far from exciting. The poor showing in their pre-season game highlighted the lack of wideout playmakers on their team. Nelson Agholor was a 2015 1st round pick and has thus far been a disappointment. Rueben Randle came over from the Giants and he has not made much impact either.
Jordan Matthews has been the only consistent receiver on the roster but he is currently sidelined with a knee injury. So yes, he's consistent with 85 catches, 8 TDs, and just shy of 1,000 yards last year, but very far from dominant. Jordan also has a limited ceiling playing primarily from the slot with no outside threat to open things up for him. He is a useful bye week replacement or flex spot at best.
So now the Eagles have traded with the Titans for Dorial Green-Beckham, a 2nd round pick in 2015 with potential 1st round talent. DGB is a 6'5" 237 pound guy with one frustrating NFL season under his belt (32 rec, 549 yds, 4 TD). With no clearly dominant WR on the team, you can expect DBG to become a #2 and play on the outside. Green-Beckham has a chance to start fresh with a new team and showcase his talent. He could also be another one of those guys who misses out on his opportunity in the NFL. At this point, DGB is a major question mark along with the rest of the Eagles receivers outside of Matthews. Dorial Green-Beckham could be worth a flyer pick, but most likely will be a free agent to keep your eye on.
