3. Josh Reynolds, WR

Another wide receiver the Philadelphia Eagles should have some level of interest in is former Rams and Lions receiver Josh Reynolds.

Reynolds has proven over the last couple of years that he's tough as nails, and can handle being targeted in clutch situations. He caught over 63 percent of his targets over the last couple of seasons, and frankly, it would be a little bit surprising if the Detroit Lions let him go. He's got such a great chemistry with Jared Goff dating back to their time together with the Rams.

But if Reynolds isn't just waiting for the right offer to go back to Detroit, the Eagles should come calling. He's got the ability to make tough catches in traffic as well as stretch the field vertically at times. He averaged a career-high 15.2 yards per reception last season and set a career-high with 32 first-down receptions.

Of his 40 receptions last year, 37 went for a first down or touchdown. That kind of efficiency would be welcomed as a third option at receiver in the passing game for Jalen Hurts.
