Two months ago, the Eagles were in big trouble at the wide receiver position, having released Pro Bowler DeSean Jackson. Now, wide receiver is arguably the most stacked position group on the offensive side of the ball.
Jeremy Maclin will be counted on as the number one receiver. Despite suffering a torn ACL in minicamp last season, Maclin should be good to go at the start of the 2014 campaign. He's never proven himself as a number one receiver in the past, and he may not need to this season.
That's because rookie Jordan Matthews has been the talk of training camp. The team's second-round pick has been the best receiver at OTAs, per Jimmy Kempski of Philly.com. Matthews is expected to start the season as the slot receiver, but he's talented and versatile enough to play outside as much as the Eagles need.
Riley Cooper turned in a breakout season in 2013, catching eight touchdowns and averaging more than 17 yards per catch on his 47 receptions. He's a fringe number two starter, but he's well suited to be a number three receiver. The combination of Maclin, Matthews and Cooper gives the Eagles a top-ten receiver corps in the league.
Rookie Josh Huff is the number four receiver. Huff played more than 90 percent of his snaps in the slot under Chip Kelly at Oregon, but he also recorded at least one 20-yard catch in every game he played. He's not going to see much playing time as a rookie, but Huff knows Kelly's offense enough to succeed if an injury opens up more playing time for him.
It's unclear whether the Eagles will keep five or six receivers, but candidates for the next spot(s) include Damaris Johnson, Brad Smith, Arrelious Benn and Jeff Maehl, all leftovers from 2013, plus rookies Quron Pratt and Kadron Boone.
