The Eagles’ wide receiving corps might have the most upside of any in this division.

Jaelen Reagor’s rookie season was a colossal disappointment, especially when judged against fellow first-round picks Justin Jefferson, CeeDee Lamb, Chase Claypool, Tee Higgins, and others.

However, Reagor has flashed throughout this summer, making several one-handed catches and appears to have strengthened his chemistry with second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Meanwhile, the Eagles added speedster DeVonta Smith in the first-round of this spring’s draft, reuniting him with his former quarterback at the University of Alabama, and adding one of the premier receivers at a loaded draft class at the position.

Quez Watkins’ 79-yard touchdown on a rocket-screen in Philadelphia’s preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers underscores the kind of speed Hurts has at his disposal on the perimeter.

The Eagles’ receiving corps has a bevy of potential.

This group might not have the track record of some of the teams in this division, but if Hurts proves capable of quickly developing into a franchise quarterback, don’t be surprised if the Eagles wide receiving corps pushes for the top spot in next season’s rankings.
