Draft Scout News
08/18/15 - WR Nelson Agholor had a solid debut Sunday against the Colts. He caught three passes for 57 yards and a touchdown. The TD came on a short hitch pass from Mark Sanchez that he then took 34 yards to the end zone. Agholor also drew a 32-yard pass interference penalty on a Colts defender. His lone blemish was a third-down sideline drop of a pass that was right in his hands.
"This is the preseason," Agholor said. "You let loose. You put some stuff on film. You learn from the good plays you make and you learn from the bad mistakes. We're still in a progression mode right now."
05/07/15 - WR Nelson Agholor, selected by the Eagles in the first round of the draft (20th overall), agreed to terms on a four-year contract with a fifth-year option Thursday (May 7).
05/04/15 - Eagles add a weapon with WR Agholor...The Eagles resisted offers to trade down from the No. 20 spot in the first round and ended up making a solid selection, USC wide receiver Nelson Agholor. The 6-foot, 198-pound Agholor, who caught 104 passes for the Trojans last year, can play inside and outside, is a dangerous run-after-the-catch receiver and also one of the nation's top punt returners. The Eagles selected him over another top receiver, Breshad Perriman of Central Florida. Perriman may have a little more upside than Agholor, but Agholor is more NFL ready, which was important for Kelly, who thinks his team can compete for a Super Bowl this season if Bradford can stay healthy. - The Sports Xchange
05/04/15 - Eagles add a weapon with WR Agholor...Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly attempted to trade up in the first round and get his former University of Oregon quarterback, Marcus Mariota, but couldn't pull it off. He made a substantial offer to both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who had the first pick, and the Tennessee Titans, who ultimately selected Mariota with the second overall pick. NFL Network, which is owned by the league, reported that Kelly's trade-up offer included two first-round picks and multiple veteran players, including quarterback Sam Bradford and their two best defensive players, Pro Bowl defensive end Fletcher Cox and linebacker Mychal Kendricks. Kelly refuted that report. He said he didn't offer any players to Tampa Bay or Tennessee and that trade conversations with both teams never really got very serious.
"It didn't get very far," he said. "We didn't offer any players to anybody. We didn't get into any discussions. It was just a really steep price. It was like driving into a nice neighborhood and looking at a house, and they tell you the price and you walk away. "We didn't walk in the front door and take a look around. Part of our plan, as we've said all along, is we're going to build this team (with draft picks). We still think there is a lot of value in this draft and in future drafts. So we want to try to hold on to our picks, if we can." - The Sports Xchange
05/04/15 - The Eagles' first-round pick, wide receiver Nelson Agholor, was born in Nigeria and moved to America with his family when he was five. "My parents raised us to be very humble and to understand that everything in life you have to earn," said Agholor, who was a team captain for the Trojans' last season. "My dad rode his bike to work on a consistent basis until he finally got a car. My mom worked in a nursing hom and did things that people would find uncomfortable. I think I understand the way life workds. I don't feel like I'm entitled to anything. This is a blessing to be in this position and (for) the Eagles organization to think enough of me to have me here. Kind of work like a peasant. That's the mindset." The Eagles did try to move up in the first round, but the price wasn't right for the clubs on the other end of the line.
However, coach Chip Kelly denied offering any veterans -- including quarterback Sam Bradford -- as bait to bring in a pick that would help him reunite with Marcus Mariota, the Oregon quarterback selected No. 2 overall by the Tennessee Titans. The Eagles ended up with just six draft picks, their fewest since 2003, when they also had six. They started the draft with eight, but traded two fifth-round picks to move up five spots in the second round and select cornerback Eric Rowe. Three of the Eagles' six picks were cornerbacks, which was a position of need going into the offseason, even after signing cornerback Byron Maxwell in free agency. The Eagles gave up a league-worst 72 pass plays of 20 yards or more last season and allowed 30 touchdown passes, the fourth most in the NFL. - The Sports Xchange
