2014 Second rounder Jordan Matthews, who played at Vanderbilt, sets a high bar for Nelson Agholor's (USC) rookie year in 2015. Matthews who put up rookie year numbers consistent and even outpacing 2 top ex-Eagle receivers in Desean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. J-Matt looks to capitalize in his sophomore season and take on an even heavier load with the departure of 2014 Eagles leading receiver Jeremy Maclin's departure to Kansas City. Josh Huff will look to become more of a receiving factor in 2015 and help new quarterback Sam Bradford's first season as an Eagle a successful one. Agholor will help a young, up and coming receiving corp for the Eagles find their stride in 2015 season.
