Dorial Green-Beckham Had Most Eagles Drops Last Season
Philadelphia Eagles receiver Dorial Green-Beckham did not have a spectacular season in 2016. Well none of the receivers did, really. But especially DGB.
Quarterback Carson Wentz was plagued with his receivers dropping passes left and right all season. There is no way to accurately calculate drops by a wide receiver; the measurement of drops takes “catchable” radius into effect and this can differ from person to person.
Here is a chart found on Philly Voice that measures the Eagles drops, catches and drop percentage of all receivers from 2016:
Green-Beckham dropped 25% of his total passes, according to the chart. Anything more than ten percent should be something coaches take a look at.
How to Fix the Drops
With the recent addition of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, the Eagles receiving core is far from what it used to be. Also, it is likely that Jordan Matthews will go back to his thriving spot at slot receiver. Matthews’ production will likely go up due to his comfortability in the slot position.
There have been rumors that the Eagles are open to trading recently drafted wide receivers. This would include Matthews and Nelson Agholor. But where is Green-Beckham? The Eagles should drop his name in the mix as well (whoops).
