Eagles | LeSean McCoy praises Jordan Matthews

Philadelphia Eagles rookie WR Jordan Matthews has received praise from RB LeSean McCoy during training camp. Six wideouts in this year's draft were selected ahead of Matthews. "That rookie we got, Matthews, is looking real good. There's been a lot of talk about this draft class being deep at wide receivers, but I'm real confident in this one being the best of the class," McCoy said. "It's still early, you got to go through the season and see how he does, but he looks amazing." Matthews worked with the first-team offense Tuesday, Aug. 5, and hauled in a few catches.
Matthews is receiving some valuable repetitions with the first-team this week with Jeremy Maclin (legs) and Riley Cooper (foot) beat up. Matthews is surely worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, and he'll likely be a good value pick in daily games early in the season.
