Nelson Agholor makes strong first impression in Philadelphia

It's easy to see that the newest Eagles wide receiver fits Chip Kelly's culture.

It's been less than 24 hours since the Philadelphia Eagles drafted USC wide receiver Nelson Agholor with the No. 20 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but he's already made a strong first impression in his new home.

The rookie arrived at the NovaCare Complex on Friday afternoon for his introductory media session. Agholor didn't say anything too earth-breaking, but many reporters noted how impressive he was.

For the record, and for shameless self-promotion, I shared this same opinion when I first watched him speak last month:

Nelson's on-field talent has a lot to do with why the Eagles picked him in the first round. He's very good. But his fit into the team's culture was obviously another big reason the team valued him so much.
