WR. Philadelphia Eagles. NELSON AGHOLOR. B-. <p>Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly finished emptying out the previous receiver corps this offseason. Then he drafted Nelson Agholor, who has similar traits to Jeremy Maclin, No. 20 overall. And he impressed his new team in the offseason program as well as in training camp.</p> <p>Then Agholor impressed the NFL in the first two preseason games, particularly in the first one. Early in his first game, he went up and got a high, short pass and went 34 yards for a touchdown. So in the first two preseason games, it was assumed that Maclin, an offseason loss, had been replaced.</p> <p>Agholor is a fast, smooth route runner that’s good for a big play much in the same way Maclin is. But in the dress rehearsal against the Green Bay Packers, Agholor disappeared on his Eagles. He had two catches for only 11 yards with no touchdowns so you can say he got D’d up to lower his grade.</p>
