Jaylen Waddle falls to the Eagles in PFF’s latest 2021 NFL mock draft


#Alabama has two top-10 worthy wide receivers for next #April’s NFL #Draft and the #Eagles can use either player after another season of non-explosive plays from the outside skill groups.

#Pro #Football #Focus recently released another 2021 mock draft and the #Eagles land an explosive playmaker at #No. 6 overall, it’s just not #DeVonta #Smith.

The #Eagles are somewhat screwed at the quarterback position. #Even if they draft as high as sixth in the 2021 NFL #Draft, it’s likely the top three quarterback prospects (#Lawrence, #Wilson, #Fields) are already off the board. They’re also still tied to veteran #Carson #Wentz’s monster contract unless they can find a trade suitor in the offseason. #And while rookie #Jalen #Hurts has shown flashes of competence as the team’s starter, he’s still one of the lowest-graded quarterbacks over the past three weeks (#Weeks 14-16) and largely a project at the position.

#Hurts and #Wentz will likely duke it out in camp to compete for the starting nod just to play for an offense that lacks depth and high-end talent across the board. #Targeting one of the best non-quarterbacks in the draft at higher positional value than off-ball linebacker (sorry #Micah #Parsons stans) at #No. 6 overall makes the most sense for #Philly.

#Waddle is arguably a better receiver prospect than #Henry #Ruggs III was coming out of #Alabama in 2020. #An explosive, dynamic athlete, #Waddle ranks inside the top five in yards per route run (3.64) and yards after the catch per reception (11.5) over the past two seasons.

#In 2019 #Waddle returned a kick and a punt for a touchdown and racked up 33 catches for 560 yards and six touchdowns as the #Crimson #Tide’s #No. 4 receiver behind #Jerry #Jeudy, #Devonta #Smith, and #Ruggs.

#In four games this season before suffering a broken ankle, #Waddle matched his performance from last season, logging 557 yards and four touchdowns on 25 catches for an average of 22.28 yards per reception.

#Waddle suffered the injury against #Tennessee and he entered the matchup against the #Vols’ with four straight 100-yard receiving games while ranking fourth nationally in receiving yards and eighth in yards per catch.

#Waddle was on pace for the huge season #DeVonta #Smith ultimately ended up having and he’d at a spectacular dynamic to the #Eagles passing game.
