Draft Scout *Nelson Agholor News
12/28/16 - WR Nelson Agholor had his first touchdown catch since Week 1 last week, hauling in a 40-yard reception from Carson Wentz. Agholor, the team's 2015 first-round pick, has just 36 catches.
"I think that was important for Nelson," Pederson said. "He needs to head into the offseason with a good taste in his mouth. He needs to be confident heading into OTAs next spring."
12/23/16 - WR Nelson Agholor caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from Carson Wentz in Thursday's 24-19 victory over the New York Giants for his first TD reception since the season opener against Cleveland. Agholor, the Eagles' first-round draft pick in 2015, dropped numerous passes this season and at one point even admitted that he lost some confidence. He was benched for a game by coach Doug Pederson to clear his head. Agholor didn't get off to a very good start Thursday night, when he dropped the first pass thrown to him, a perfectly delivered ball that clanked off his hands in the first quarter. "I just try to shut the negative stuff out and focus on the positive," Agholor said. "I didn't have that (here we go again) feeling after that first pass, not at all. But I was praying that I'd get another chance to make a play and help this team win. That's my entire focus, and as long as we win, I'll go home happy, regardless of how I played."
12/01/16 - WR Nelson Agholor watched Monday night's loss to the Packers on the sideline in street clothes after being a healthy scratch by Pederson. Pederson said he doesn't know yet whether he will activate Agholor this week. For his part, Agholor said he can deal with whatever his coach decides. "Right now, it's all about just living in the moment," the 2015 first-round pick said. "I have to enjoy those moments every time I step on the field. God gave me great abilities. I'm in a position where I have to take advantage of it."
11/29/16 - WR Nelson Agholor, who had been a starter ever since he was drafted in the first round last year, was deactivated for the Monday game against Green Bay. Last week, after a couple of his mistakes played a big part in the Eagles' loss to Seattle, Agholor told reporters that he had lost confidence and coach Doug Pederson said he would consider sitting the second-year receiver this week.
"It came down to basically just letting him see the game with a little bit calmer eyes, just a different perspective on the game," Pederson said. "Even during the week I was going back and forth with it."
Pederson wouldn't say whether Agholor will be back in uniform for next Sunday's game at Cincinnati, but the receiver's teammates said they will welcome him back with open arms.
11/21/16 - WR Nelson Agholor is taking a lot of heat this season, and Sunday's game isn't likely to silence the critics. He had zero catches, made an egregious drop over the middle and was lined up wrong on a 57-yard touchdown pass that got called back due to an illegal formation. "He's a part of our team, and we've got to keep plugging away," coach Doug Pederson said. "He's got to fight through it."
