When Chip Kelly specifically targets an offensive player in the draft, I am going to take notice. Kelly is arguably the brightest offensive mind of this generation, and while he is unproven at the NFL level, I have nothing but faith in his ability to churn out offensive talent.
Nelson Agholor is an extremely talented wide receiver who can certainly make an impact in Kelly’s offense. He has an impressive combination of pure speed, quickness and athleticism that makes him both a dangerous deep threat and a player who can do some damage after the catch. There is not a better coach in the NFL who can create ways to get his players in space than Kelly, and that is exactly how Agholor will have success in the NFL.
He is a very talented player who simply could not have dreamed of a better situation for his skill-set. With so many talented players in this class, it will be an uphill battle for Agholor, but make no mistake about it; he is a legitimate rookie of the year candidate.
