Looks to be a decent pick up.

Not the best of route runners, but he has good downfield speed which was needed and plays STs as a bonus.

He's huge and fast. Maybe he'll learn from Alson Jeffrey.

Is this the end of the road for DGB?

NAgholor is stuck on the team due to his contract.

Is there a roster spot for everyone? Will they keep 6 WRs? They won't keep all of them active. Will D Fipps want Hollins active over NA?

Are they just going to dump Matthews for peanuts? I seriously doubt it since they could loose Jeffrey

We've just added another WR Gibson, so it looks like Green-Beckham is history.

Jeffrey, Smith, Matthews, Hollins, Gibson, Agholor would be the six.

These quotes stand out:

Medicals require inspection, missing the second half of the 2016 season following surgery to repair his a broken right clavicle (Oct. 2016) - also pulled his quad while running his first 40-yard dash the Combine.

Plenty of big plays on his game film with 28 career receptions (34.6%) of at least 20+ yards - led the NCAA in yards per reception (24.8) in 2015 ... ranks third all-time in UNC history with 20 career touchdown catches, scoring once every four catches ..

Hollins is still very raw, but his special teams skills will give coaches a reason to keep him on the roster while he competes for his place on the receiver depth chart.

I like this pick. He seems to have toughness and physical skills but is raw. The sports science guys probably think they can fix the medical issues.

NA is going to have a tough time earning the right to be active on this roster.
Joegrane
I agree. He is fortunate that the Eagles selected a CB who was thought to be a year early in coming out. By being inactive most weeks, it will be like a red-shirt year for Gibson.

If it was a fair competition, N.A. wouldn't start over Turner or Bailey.

His contract will keep him here this year.

Hopefully they will deactivate him so he doesn't poison the water on game day.
