Since being selected as the 20th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Nelson Agholor has been a disappointment at Wide Receiver for the Eagles.  Over two seasons Agholor has compiled 59 Receptions, 648 Yards, 3 Touchdown Catches and a Catch Percentage of 52.25%; all numbers that lead people to think he is an NFL “Bust”.

USA Today Eagles Wire Reporter Turron Davenport joined Mike Gill on Wednesday and he believes a good Wide Receivers coach could salvage Nelson Agholor’s career:

“At the NFL level everybody is talented, it’s all about the mental part of it and if you’re not there mentally then it’s definitely a problem….I don’t look at Nelson (Agholor) as a guy that’s not salvageable, I think he and (Dorial Green-Beckham) are it’s just a process….but when you don’t have that natural, innate dominant personality at that position it takes a little bit longer to develop and I think that’s what the issue with Agholor is.  He’s eventually going to be a good player, I one-hundred percent believe in that, but it’s just a matter of getting that person, that coach to come in there and allow him to have the right mental mindset.”

Hear what Davenport analysis of the value of position coaching in the NFL along with what Wide Receiver prospects to look out for ahead of the 2017 NFL Draft
