What Wide Receivers aren't the Eagles looking at?

New, comments

Maybe it would save me time if I simply listed the college WRs that the Birds aren't checking... The news of the Eagles' working out/hosting/being interested in WRs is pouring in by the era.

PFT is reporting that the Eagles are working out Appalachian State WR Dexter Jackson

Specifically, the Eagles sent receivers coach David Culley to North Carolina for a private workout with Appalachian State receiver Dexter Jackson.

Jackson ran the 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine in a blazing 4.27 seconds.  On the small side at five-nine and 178 pounds, Jackson is projected to be a third-round or a fourth-round pick.  He caught two touchdown passes in the Mountaineers' epic upset of Michigan at Ann Arbor.

Jackson's potential as a WR might be limited at the pro level, but he's a fantastic return man.

In other WR news... Matt Miller of New Era Scouting and Mocking the Draft told me that he hears Oklahoma WR Malcolm Kelly will workout for the Eagles, Redskins, and Bengals this weekend. He will look to improve on his disappointing 4.7 40 he ran at the OU pro day.
