Davenport: Agholor Is Eventually Going To Be A Good Player
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.”
