Eagles Ink Top Pick Nelson Agholor
The Eagles have signed the No. 20 overall pick in this year's draft, wide receiver Nelson Agholor to a four-year, $9.4 million contract with a club option for 2019.
Agholor (6'0/198) was a two-year starter for the Trojans, securing 179 catches for 2,571 yards (14.4 YPR) and 20 TDs.
Much like the guy he will replace, Jeremy Maclin, Agholor projects as a potentially high-volume target capable of racking up 80-plus catches per year. Agholor runs very good routes and can also offer more value as punt return.
