That chemistry Kessler built with Agholor if he stays down at USC with him could result in all kinds of fire works. That second half by Kessler is on pace for 4,000 yards and 50 touchdowns and that would make Kessler a 1st-round pick. For Agholor, that would be on pace for 110 catches for over 1,600 yards receiving to push him into the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft himself.

This year’s receiver class is pretty deep so it would definitely help Agholor to stay and improve with Kessler and possibly be the guy. It’s all about Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota this year so Kessler could have a big year with Agholor next year and be first quarterback taken in the draft. If I were Kessler right now, I would sell this as win-win for both of them everyday until Agholor agreed to stay.
