2015 NFL Draft: Gil Brandt correctly predicted Eagles would pick Nelson Agholor back in early March

How he did know?

Back in early March, former NFL executive and current NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt said he knew who the Philadelphia Eagles were going to select in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Well, it looks like he wasn't wrong.

Impressive. This took place before the Eagles brought Agholor in for a pre-draft visit or gave him a private workout, too.

Then again, it wasn't really that surprising of a pick. The Eagles needed a wide receiver after losing Jeremy Maclin and Agholor fits Chip Kelly's Pac-12 bias.

I'd like to toot my own horn here and say that I was convinced Agholor was a Chip guy back in March as well.

But this post isn't about me. In any case, nice job, Gil.

Or should I say ... Gilluminati?!
