"We're goin' to fuckin' Philly!!!!" - The Granny Of New Eagles WR John Hightower Has Won My Heart And It's So Sweet That I Don't Even Mind Double Blogging Jordie

**A professional would take this down immediately after seeing Jordie had done pretty much the same blog right before mine (didn't see his until mine was up), but I'm going to do the 'ol 'wait & see if someone texts you very annoyed' first for the sake of pageviews ha ha

From the Philly Voice:

After drafting speed demon Jalen Reagor in Round 1, and then trading for one of the fastest players in the NFL in Marquise Goodwin, the Philadelphia Eagles have added even more speed, selecting Boise State WR John Hightower with the 168th pick of the NFL Draft.

…Hightower has a good yards per catch average. However, he's 6'1, 189, with a slender frame, so there will be concerns about his ability to beat press coverage at the next level. He ran a 4.43 at the Combine.

Clearly Hightower's Granny has zero concerns regardless of the slender build. If he brings half her energy he should be a great pick. Would buy any Chunky Soup she promoted with him.

Welcome to Philly. You've got my vote, but may your reception from everyone else be warmer than Reagor's.
