The Eagles are bringing in another wide receiver as part of their pre-draft process.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team is visiting with Ohio State wideout Chris Olave on Thursday. Alabama’s Jameson Williams was in for a meeting earlier this week.

Olave joins Williams in a group of players widely expected to be first-round picks later this month. He caught 65 passes for 936 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Buckeyes last season.

The Eagles have a pair of first-round picks at their disposal this year. If they use one on a receiver, it will mark three straight years that they’ve added a wideout in the first round. 2021’s addition was DeVonta Smith and he’s set to continue playing a big role for the team. 2020 first-rounder Jalen Reagor has disappointed to this point, though, and the interest in adding another high pick to the group doesn’t bode well for him in Philly.

  1. Did his draft stock rise or fall after Smith-Njigba put up 346 in the Rose Bowl? Guess door 3 is “unchanged.”

  2. Sorry, Olave is going to Washington at pick 11. (Chris Olave, Terry McLaurin, and Curtis Samuels should be a good group.

    That’s a lot of Buckeyes at the skill positions, I’m sure Jim Lachey would like it. Not so sure Carson Wentz can get them the ball though. Good luck to the team formerly known as the ‘Skins & Go Buckeyes!

  4. Please Washington take him off the Board before pick 15, not even the best receiver on his team, he’s a late 2nd rounder at best.
