Eagles draft North Carolina WR Mack Hollins in the 4th round
Hollins, 23, is 6-foot-4 and 221 pounds and ran a 4.53-second 40-yard dash.
The Eagles selected North Carolina wide receiver Mack Hollins in the fourth round of the NFL draft with the No. 118 pick on Saturday.
Hollins, 23, is 6-foot-4 and 221 pounds and ran a 4.53-second 40-yard dash. He had 16 catches for 309 yards and four touchdowns in seven games last season before a collarbone injury ended his season. He had 81 catches for 1,667 yards and 20 touchdowns over three years. With size and speed, there are developmental traits as a wide receiver.
But Hollins also presents significant value on special teams. He had 20 special teams tackles during his first three seasons with the Tar Heels, so he could find a role as a coverage player on the Eagles' unit.
The Eagles didn't use any of their wide receivers on the coverage units last year. Look for that to change with Hollins joining the roster.
