The Eagles are showing a good amount of interest in receivers

  • ."Georgia wide receiver Mecole Hardman is visiting the Philadelphia Eagles today. It’s fitting that Hardman took a picture of DeSean Jackson’s locker because he fits in that mold. Hardman isn’t very big (5-10 Brandon Brooks Jersey , 187 pounds) but he is very fast (4.33 40-yard dash). He finished his college career with 16.0 yards per reception; 60 receptions for 961 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also had 13 rushing attempts for 97 yards and two scores. Hardman was also dangerous on punt returns considering he fielded 39 punts for a strong 15.2 average and one touchdown. Hardman didn’t play receiver until landing at Georgia; he was previously a cornerback. So he’s still learning the position. Projections have him going as a late Day 2 or early Day 3 pick. Hardman is now the fifth known wide receiver prospect to be hosted by the Eagles on a pre-draft visit. The team is clearly doing their homework on that position. It’s interesting that Philly would still be interested in a speedster like Hardman despite adding Jackson earlier this offseason. Then again, Jackson turns 33 in December so it can’t hurt to have an eye on the future.’s Lance Zierlein compares Hardman to Tyler Lockett.
