With the 194th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Eagles have selected WR Marvin McNutt from Iowa. One of the things a lot of fans were hoping for in this draft was a wideout with some size and McNutt should fit that bill at 6-3, 216.

He was incredibly productive at Iowa with 82 catches for over 1300 yards and 12 TDs last season. He's a converted QB and was named the Hawkeye's team captain last season.

Here's what National Football Post had to say.

A tall, long armed receiver who can win off the line and use his big frame to box and go get the football. A big target who looks capable of fighting for a starting role now at the next level. However, is never going to be a guy who separates a ton in any area of the game.

The guy has very good hands and ideal size but still learning the position. He only moved to QB in 2009. So there's certainly some more development that will happen there.
