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
08/22/14 - WR Jeremy Maclin crumpled to the turf without being hit early in the second quarter Thursday and grabbed his knee. But he eventually walked off under his own power and later returned to the game.
"It was obviously an awkward fall," he said. "It was similar to what I did last year (when he tore his ACL), with the knee going straight into the ground like that. Luckily, my quad is strong enough and the leg is intact."
08/13/14 - WR Jeremy Maclin left Wednesday's practice with a hamstring strain. Maclin was in the middle of an impressive individual display, getting behind New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis on multiple occasions in the second day of joint practices.
Maclin said his left hamstring "grabbed" but thought he would be ready for Friday's preseason game. With rain falling and field conditions slippery, several players had issues with footing.
08/05/14 - WR Jeremy Maclin returned to practice Tuesday after leaving Monday's practice early after landing awkwardly after leaping for a pass.
07/27/14 - WR Jeremy Maclin, who missed all of last season with an ACL tear, has shown no signs of problems from the injury in the first two days of training camp. Maclin is expected to be one of the Eagles' starting wide receivers.
04/30/14 - WR Jeremy Maclin, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, said he feels no extra pressure because of the unexpected departure of three-time Pro Bowl wideout DeSean Jackson, who was released in last March.
"I'm going to do the best thing Jeremy Maclin can do, and that's to try and be the total package," Maclin said. "As far as trying to replace anybody, I'm not here to replace anybody. There's nobody to replace."
Maclin caught 258 passes and had 26 touchdown receptions in his first four seasons with the Eagles before injuring his knee. But he's never had more than 70 receptions in a season and never has had more than 964 receiving yards.
