ESPN's Phil Sheridan: Eagles WR Jordan Matthews could be a star

Phil Sheridan, who covers the Eagles for, says that there were "people at organized team activities comparing [Matthews'] physique to that of Terrell Owens" and that "[Matthews] could be a star in the future." The Eagles drafted the rookie wideout in the second round of the 2014 draft. He will likely be rostered as the number-three receiver, behind WRs Jeremy Maclin @jmac_18 and Riley Cooper @RileyCooper_14.

Fantasy Analysis:

Matthews' measurables - 6-feet 3-inches tall, 212 pounds, 4.46 speed, 35-inch vertical - match the star receiver prototype perfectly. While rookie WRs typically take some time to develop in the NFL, Matthews should see the field right away, given the departure of former Eagles number-one WR DeSean Jackson to the Redskins. In Chip Kelly's fast-paced, high-octane offense, it's not hard to imagine Matthews breaking through as a serious producer in his first year. Fantasy owners would do well to remember this name in the late rounds of this year's drafts.
