After the Eagles drafted WR Mack Hollins in Round 4, some posited that they grabbed him primarily for the special teams value. GM Howie Roseman said that wasn't the motivation, however, according to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. While calling that a plus, Roseman reportedly said they drafted the 6'4 wideout because he brings "starter potential." Hollins will be interesting to watch in a young offense and will carry upside late in dynasty rookie drafts.
The Eagles added North Carolina WR Mack Hollins in the 4th round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He totaled 65 catches, 1,358 yards and 16 scores across 2014 and 2015 before missing time this past year with a collarbone injury that required surgery. Hollins is a big 6'4, 221-pounder and is considered 1 of the better blockers and special teamers in this year's WR class. There's some long-term upside here, but Hollins figures to be buried in Philadelphia's deep WR group this season.
