Eagles' JJ Arcega-Whiteside: Philly lands in second round
Arcega-Whiteside (6-foot-2, 225 pounds) is a big wideout with a rich skill set and the ability to play both the slot and outside at a high level. While he lacks standout athleticism (4.49-second 40), Arcega-Whiteside's route running and ball skills are off the charts, showing an innate ability to set himself in an advantageous position and winning the vast majority of jump-ball situations. Arcega-Whiteside's box-out ability in the end zone is about the closest that you get to a pro wrestling-style finishing move in football. At Stanford, it seemed to surface so frequently it felt almost scripted, and his college stats seem to bear that out (28 touchdowns on 135 career catches). It's a deep pass-catching corps in Philadelphia, so JJAW is more of a long-term asset than an immediate one, but he's not the kind of guy you want to bet against.
