Last night, the 1st round of the 2020 NFL Draft came and went. Whether you were happy with the pick or not, the Eagles walked away with a dynamic playmaker in Jalen Reagor after saving their draft capital staying put at #21.
Heading into Day 2, the Eagles hold picks #53 and #103. With a bevy of talent still on the board, Philadelphia will be eager to add some more difference makers. Although they have holes in other parts of their team, going wide receiver again in the 2nd or 3rd round is definitely tempting.
WRs still on the board

With Reagor’s ability to play on both the outside and in the slot, the Eagles aren’t really limited to selecting a certain mold of a wide receiver.
Colorado’s Laviska Shenault makes a ton of sense. Shenault is an unique prospect. He’s received comparisons to Saquon Barkely, yes the running back, just because of how dangerous he is with the ball in his hands. And with a 6’2ft 230lb frame, it’s not too surprising to see why he’s such a threat.
KJ Hamler, who is probably the complete opposite in terms of size, is another intriguing name. Although he’s undersized, the speed he possesses is something you simply can’t teach. Having Hamler, Reagor and DeSean would essentially be a copycat version of the Super Bowl Champion, Kansas City Chiefs.
As far as other names go, there’s a lot of them. You have possession receivers like Pittman Jr, Denzel Mims and Tee Higgins who expect to go early-mid 2nd, while slot guys like Van Jefferson, KJ Hill and Devin Duvernay could last until the 3rd.
All in all, the Eagles have their fair share of possibilities on Day 2 if they want to stack up at the receiver position again.
