The Philadelphia Eagles seem to be forming one of their best groups of offensive players in the 2019 season. Among their abundance of offensive weapons, Doug Pederson is enthusiastic with the prospects of JJ Arcega-Whiteside in the offense.

“One of the things (about) J.J. is (he is) a hard worker,” coach Doug Pederson said after the game, via the team’s official website. “You see it in practice every day. He comes to work every day. He wants to get better. He wants to be taught. He wants to learn. The red zone, we know he can be explosive. He was able to do that really not only there, but out in the field.”

The Eagles faced the Baltimore Ravens in their “dress rehearsal” preseason game where Carson Wentz didn’t see the field. Despite Wentz being in street clothes, the team was anxious to see more of rookie Arcega-Whiteside in the offense.

On Thursday night, Philadelphia’s second-round pick out of Stanford was able to wrangle in eight receptions for 104 yards and a score in the Eagles’ 26-15 loss against the Ravens. Aside from the loss, the Eagles were glad to see their rookie wideout thrive in the passing attack.

Currently, Arcega-Whiteside stands behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor. At 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, the Stanford product has the makings of a possible star receiver in the NFL. Due to his size and strong hands, he could easily figure in as a red zone threat.

With Agholor being in a contract year, Arcega-Whiteside could unseat him as the team’s third receiver. Until then, the second-round pick will have to continue showing the coaching staff his useful skillset.
