In Eagles rumors today, the Philadelphia Eagles may be looking to the 2014 NFL Draft as a way to bolster their wide receiving corps -- with the #22 pick perhaps where they would look to grab a wideout.
According to Jeff McLane in an article on Philly.com, three wide receivers top the list of potential draft picks for the Philadelphia Eagles in May -- Oregon State's Brandin Cooks, LSU's Odell Beckham, and Indiana's Cody Lattimer.
McLane sees Brandin Cooks as the best possible fit for the Eagles at #22, stating that "with a jumble of talented receivers expected to be available after Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans go in the top 10, the Eagles should have four to five options to add to a position of need. The question then is whom Kelly covets most. The guess here is Cooks, who has the versatility, yards-after-catch production, and toughness the coach looks for out of the position."
"Cooks may have similar traits to the departed DeSean Jackson (5-foot-10, 189 pounds, and a 4.33-second 40-yard dash), but he has shown, at least in college, that he is adept at making catches in traffic," McLane added.
