Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. The Eagles went into the draft hoping running back Knowshon Moreno would fall to them. He didn't, but Maclin, who was considered the second best wide receiver in the draft behind only Michael Crabtree, did tumble. Maclin is a bigger version of DeSean Jackson and will give quarterback Donovan McNabb another valuable target with terrific run-after-the-catch ability. Maclin also is an excellent returner. A closer look at the Eagles' picks: Round 1/19 -- Jeremy Maclin, WR, 6-0, 198, Missouri...Eagles didn't target him, but as he unexpectedly fell, they traded up from 21 to 19 to grab him. He's a slightly bigger version of DeSean Jackson. A guy who can get in and out of his routes and is very good on bubble screens and hitches and slants -- all a big part of the Eagles' offense. He has return experience, which will allow the Eagles to lighten Jackson's load. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout *Jeremy Maclin News
09/12/16 - WR Jeremy Maclin (head) was pulled from the Chiefs victory over San Diego on Sunday when he took a blow to the head from Chargers safety Jahleel Addae. Maclin made a 22-yard catch in the middle of the field before he took a helmet-to-helmet hit by Addae. On the next play, the Chiefs tied the score with a Spencer Ware touchdown run. Club personnel put Maclin through the NFL concussion testing and he was ultimately cleared to return to the game.
08/22/16 - WR Jeremy Maclin was ejected from Saturday night's preseason game against the Rams in Los Angeles. Maclin was tossed late in the first half when he tangled with Rams cornerback Lamarcus Joyner in the end zone after an incompletion. The initial flag went against Joyner, but Maclin's reaction drew a flag and both players were tossed. Maclin was not scheduled to play in the second half, and he does not think if the game was played in the regular season that there would have been ejected. "I don't necessarily agree with (the refs) did, but at the end of the day, I can't put myself in that position," Maclin said.
08/18/16 - WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) is scheduled to play on Saturday when the Chiefs face the Rams in Los Angeles. Maclin missed some practice time during the week because of the groin pull. But on Thursday, head coach Andy Reid indicated that Maclin will play against the Rams.
05/31/16 - WR Jeremy Maclin finished the Chiefs' first week of OTA sessions with a limp, turning his ankle during last Thursday's practice. At the time, coach Andy Reid said it was nothing to worry about, and Maclin showed that on Tuesday, running through the on-field workout with his teammates. It was an ankle injury that limited Maclin's participation in the Chiefs' playoff loss to New England.
05/26/16 - WR Jerry Maclin at just 28 years old has become the grizzled veteran and leader of the Chiefs' wide receivers. In his eighth season, Maclin sees seven of the other 12 receivers currently on the roster in their rookie, first or second season. "I'm doing what I have to do to help these guys and to help everybody know what goes on in the National Football League as far as the rookies go," said Maclin. "Half of the battle is leading by example, the other half is knowing each person's individual personality, taking them aside, talking to them not just about football, but life in general."
