The Philadelphia Eagles’ 2014 season will feature both home and away games with the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, and New York Giants. They will also play a home game against the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and an away game against the Green Bay Packers. Against these teams, the Eagles need to step up their passing attack.

The Eagles’ general manager, Howie Roseman, recently emphasized this point in describing the team’s approach to the 2014 NFL draft, where coaches will search for a good wide receiver. Roseman said the Eagles need a receiver who can be consistent in actually catching the ball as well as running after the catch. Soft hands and good hand-eye coordination should help. Mike Evans of Texas A&M, one of the top receivers in this year’s draft, credits his time playing basketball as a significant asset. In addition, Roseman and company will be looking for a receiver with a balance of offensive and defensive skills, especially the ability to provide blocking downfield.
