Hollins is an intriguing player given his combination of size and speed. Measuring in at 6-4, 221 pounds, the 23-year-old pass catcher runs a 4.53 40-yard dash.
Despite his physical ability, however, Hollins wasn’t extremely productive for the Tarheels. He only caught 81 passes in four years of playing college football.
Hollins wasn’t a volume receiver by any means, but he did make the most of his touches. He averaged a very impressive 20.6 yards per reception. 20 of his 81 total college receptions were touchdowns.
In addition to his role as a receiver, Hollins is a very good special teams player. His contributions in this area will help his chances of being active on game day.
I like the Hollins addition in the sense that it’s another big target for Carson Wentz who can also stretch the field. With Hollins (6-4), Alshon Jeffrey (6-3), and Jordan Matthews (6-3) in the fold, the Eagles have some real nice size at receiver.
The downside is Hollins is still raw despite being an older prospect at age 23. He hasn’t proven himself as a full-time offensive player considering he played less than 50% of UNC’s snaps each year. He’s going to have to grow into an offensive role with the Eagles.
My grade for the Hollins pick is a B- rating. How about you? Vote in the poll below.
