Philadelphia Eagles: Best wide receiver fit in the 2018 NFL Draft

Philadelphia Eagles: Best wide receiver fit in the 2018 NFL Draft

Last year, 11 players with Utah ties were selected in the National Football League draft.

They have not drafted a running back in the first round since taking Laurence Maroney in 2006.

Those of you who have followed my Detroit Lions seven-round mock draft series know the deal by now but it's worth explaining again.

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick brushed off the idea that his team might select a player in the 2018 NFL Draft based upon needs. Finding role players or even starters who can join the team and play from the first day onward is critical. There is no secret that they need a tight end, first and foremost.

Four DallasCowboys.com writers recently released their second version of selections for the Cowboys' picks in this year's draft.

The second was No. 7 overall selection Mike Williams, who caught just 47.8 percent of the passes thrown his way and failed to score a touchdown in 10 games as a rookie with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Bio/stats: Georgia sports writers voted him the high school defensive player or the year for the 2014 season.

Next up, the polar opposite in prospects: Brown finished the 2017 season as a First-Team All-American and was ranked right at the top of this group of draft prospects, notable for his 6-foot-8, 360-pound frame. A good Combine workout - especially an eye-blink quick 1.59-second 10-yard split when timed in the 40 - indicated that he's recovered from an ankle injury that hampered him in 2017.

He started for three years for the Panthers, and his athleticism gave way to two touchdowns on gadget plays in college.

Among the four receivers drafted in the first round in 2016 (Corey Coleman, Will Fuller, Josh Doctson and Laquon Treadwell), only Fuller has come close to living up to expectations. Of course, they had a much-improved defense a year ago that was the main reason they made the playoffs.
