The Eagles are on the search for upgrades and depth at the wide receiver position. Between several visits from players at the position and other rumors being reported, Philadelphia has made it a priority to add to the unit. If the Eagles are looking to go local, Pittsburgh's Devin Street may be an under-the-radar Day 2 player that could turn into a quality NFL starter.
A native of Bethlehem, Pa. and a Liberty High School alum, Street committed to Pittsburgh in 2009 and redshirted his first year on campus. In 2010, Street played in all 13 games (four starts) and had 25 catches for 318 receiving yards and two touchdowns. He became a full-time starter as a redshirt sophomore and collected 53 receptions for 754 passing yards and two touchdowns.
Street received second team All-Big East honors as a junior after starting all 13 games for the second straight season. He produced 73 catches for 975 yards and five touchdowns. In his final season at Pittsburgh, Street collected 51 catches for 854 yards and seven touchdown. He left Pittsburgh as the schools all-time leading pass catcher with 202 receptions.

Street has experience as a serious No. 1 wide receiver, as he was targeted so much at Pittsburgh, that he broke the school record for receptions. He is a big and long target with solid hands. He has terrific body control and is comfortable with double moves. He will never be considered a tough guy, but he has no qualms about going across the middle and taking a hit. He will make spectacular catches and is a dependable option with jump balls. He is very good about protecting the ball with it in his hands. He takes long strides and can get YAC. His ability to change direction is impressive.
Street needs to add weight to become a proficient blocker. He is not a fast guy and lacks separation when running downfield. His route running needs some serious work but is coachable. His frame is very thin, so adding muscle would likely help him at the next level.
Street does not get press like Jordan Matthews or Allen Robinson, but they are all roughly around the same talent level. Street is likely to go in the late second round or early third and has the talent to become a No. 1 wide receiver. If the Eagles decided to pass in the first round on a wide receiver, Street may be a solid option at pick No. 54. The Eagles clearly like size and athleticism, which Street has in droves.
