Of all the trades during the first draft night, none was bigger than the Philadelphia Eagles acquiring star wide receiver A.J. Brown from the Tennessee Titans for a first-round pick. It's a really great addition to a receiver room that otherwise lacked depth and overall quality, with only DeVonta Smith as a good starter and Quez Watkins as a solid WR2.
With Brown joining the team, the 1-2 punch alongside Smith should give opposing defenses a nightmare. Although they possess different route-running styles, they both can create separation with a certain ease and explore all three levels of defenses. It's fair to wonder whether Jalen Hurts' accuracy will be up to par, but the combination is really exciting on paper.
Brown is a dominant receiver at the point of attack with enough strength and velocity to beat defenders from whatever leverage he takes presnap. He's also a very good friend of Jalen Hurts off the field, so creating chemistry won't be a problem for these two; with the amount of attention he demands from opposing defenses, more opportunities will be available to DeVonta Smith on the outside - it remains unclear whether Quez Watkins will move to the slot.
Wide receiver depth had been a need for the Eagles for a while now, and they did a great job acquiring an important building block in the position. Brown will not only open up space for younger guys like Smith and Watkins but he should be a star himself - and Hurts should improve as a result. Those are exciting times to be an Eagles fan
