What is the best thing a rookie WR could do in a mini camp? Impress all the coaches and become acclimated to the west coast offense quicker than most? That’s just what Reggie Brown did over the weekend. It is pretty fair to say that expectations Philly fans have on wide receivers which the Eagles have drafted are pretty low. With the exception of Greg Lewis, there hasn’t been much in the past few years besides a mouth and a frohawk.
It has been said over and over that it is almost impossible for a rookie WR to contribute in his first year in the west coast offense, but it seems like rookie Reggie Brown is on a great path. Len Pasquarelli wrote a nice piece for ESPN.com talking about the Eagles’ newest ball catcher.
"Really, outside of the [media], no one up there talked at all about those two guys not being there," said Brown, who was graded by some teams as a low first-round prospect. "But it’s not like you could be totally [oblivious] to the fact they weren’t around. Me, I was really looking forward to meeting T.O. and working with him. I wished he had been there, even though it’s not up to me to get involved with that stuff. But when he wasn’t there, sure, I thought, ‘Hey, this could mean more [playing] time for me.’ I think it gave me a chance to make an impression on the coaches. And I think I made progress every day."
