DeSean Jackson Update… and Draft Targets

DeSeanInstagram

DeSean Jackson Instagramed a picture of He and Chip Kelly saying that he had talked to Chip and apparently the two are on good terms. It’s another twist in the DeSean Jackson saga and it’s probably best if we just wait it out instead of constantly swirling around rumors.

If the Eagles were to rid of DeSean by way of either trade or outright releasing him then they would most certainly need a wide receiver to replace him in the draft.

A couple of names to look for are Brandin Cooks, Odell Beckham Jr., and Donte Moncrief. Cooks best resemble what Jackson now does with his speed and play making ability. Beckham is slightly bigger and can still take the top off the defense but he isn’t as fast as Jackson or Cooks. Moncrief is an interesting one because he has the size, 6’2″ 221lbs, combined with speed and if properly worked with could become a top NFL receiver. You can view their NFL.com profiles by clicking on their names.

Below are the highlights of each player.



 

However this draft is so deep at wide receiver that they could wait until later rounds, 3-7, to take one. Howie Roseman is on record for saying that “We feel there is a solid receiver available in each round.”
