Eagles' J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: Making bid for red-zone work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcega-Whiteside dominated red-zone drills during the Eagles' offseason program, according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com.

At 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, the second-round pick is coming off a senior season with 14 of Stanford's 29 touchdown receptions, including a slew of contested catches in the red zone. Far from a one-year wonder, Arcega-Whiteside also hit paydirt nine times in 2017 for a run-heavy Cardinal offense that threw for just 23 scores. He now faces a difficult path to regular snaps in Philadelphia, where Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor (lower body) will form the regular grouping in three-wide formations. Arcega-Whiteside's best chance at an immediate role entails the red zone, an area that's accounted for just 12 of Jackson's 53 career touchdown catches.

Eagles' JJ Arcega-Whiteside: Philly lands in second round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles selected Arcega-Whiteside in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 57th overall.

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.
