The 6-foot-4, 211 pound Martavis Bryant has withering speed. He ran a 4.43 40 yard dash at the combine, and the Eagles could use his skills. His 17 receptions of 20 or more yards are exactly what the Eagles are looking for in their high-tempo offense.

Trevor Reilly is a gritty player who fits the OLB position in the Eagles' defense. His athleticism is intriguing (4.69 40 yard dash at Pro Day), and he could be used as a rotational rusher as a rookie. Reilly has ability to pursue ball carriers and make the open field tackles.

3. NT DaQuan Jones - Penn State

Penn State has produced a number of quality defensive tackles the last couple of years, and DaQuan Jones is no different. Philadelphia would use Jones as a nose tackle because of his 6-foot-3, 322 pound frame. He collected 11.5 tackles for loss and three sacks last year for the Nittany Lions, and could push for time behind Bennie Logan.

2. OLB Jeremiah Attaochu - Georgia Tech

Jeremiah Attaochu looks like the prototypical rush linebacker with his strong build and long arms. He would push Trent Cole for playing time early as a rookie. Familiar with playing in the 3-4 defense in college, Attaochu has shown gap integrity and is much better against the run than people think.

1. WR Josh Huff - Oregon

Surprise! An Oregon player going to Philadelphia. Josh Huff is a player who could fill the shoes of DeSean Jackson. He is not as fast, but he is a great route runner with quickness, and will use his power against defenders. Huff is also a return man; the Eagles can use him in a wide variety of ways, and Chip Kelly is aware of his skill set.
