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

12/24/14 - WR Jeremy Maclin, who signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Eagles last year after missing the previous season with a torn ACL, has had the best season of his career, catching 82 passes for 1,269 yards and 10 touchdowns. While he could be one of the top free-agent wide receivers on the market in March, he is hoping to re-sign with the Eagles. "Why wouldn't I want to be here?" he said. "This is the place that drafted me and I want to end my career here. If we can get something worked out when the time is right, that's what will happen."

There were even reports that Maclin was bleeding from the ear. "I probably just got scraped in my helmet. Not a big deal," he said, adding, "I'm alright, man. It was a hard-fought game. I'm a little tired, a little sore. I'm alright, though."
09/07/14 - WR Jeremy Maclin had not played in a real NFL game in a long time. Maclin missed the entire 2013 season with a knee injury, so he was more than ready to take the field on Sunday. And he ended up making one of the biggest plays of the game, a 68-yard TD reception that gave the Eagles the lead for good. "Just being able to play football,'' Maclin said when asked what was most memorable about Sunday's game. "I'm blessed. I'm fortunate. The knee is behind me and now I'm just going forward.''
