A+. <p>Head coach Chip Kelly finished emptying out the previous receiver corps, letting Jeremy Maclin walk in free agency. So the Eagles went into the 2015 NFL Draft looking for an explosive receiver. And at No. 20 overall, Nelson Agholor was there for them so they went ahead and took him.</p> <p>From the first time he set foot on the Eagles’ facility, he wasted no time impressing his new team. He showed he Eagles the same explosion he showed at USC and at the 2015 NFL Souting Combine. Speaking of not wasting time, Agholor didn’t waste time impressing the NFL this preseason.</p> <p>On his second opportunity, he went up and got a high, short pass and went 34 yards for a touchdown. You can see right away that Agholor is the big-play threat the Eagles needed to replace Maclin. So I’m giving Agholor and the Eagles an A+ because he right away looks like the player the Eagles were looking for.</p>. WR. Philadelphia Eagles. NELSON AGHOLOR
