Eagles Draft Picks 2012: WR Marvin McNutt, 6th Round

The Eagles have used the first of their two 6th round picks on WR Marvin McNutt from Iowa. McNutt has ideal size at 6-3, 216 and was incredibly productive at Iowa. He racked up 82 catches for over 1300 yards and 12 TDs last season. He was also named the Hawkeye's team captain last season and has been on the squad's leadership council all four years.

Here's the National Football Post scouting report.

Displays good savvy as a route runner on vertical routes, looks off defenders, is patient stemming his routes and can put his foot in the ground and use his short area quickness to gain a step and box out. However, gets leggy on sharply breaking routes, rounds off his angles and doesn't have a great burst out of his breaks. Looks a bit high cut/tight in the hipped as well when trying to re-direct and isn't ever going to be a guy who separates consistently on sharply breaking routes. Will get after it in the run game on the edge as a blocker. Is long armed, possesses strong hands and does a nice job sticking to blocks through the play.

The guy has very good hands and ideal size but still learning the position. He only moved to QB in 2009. So there's certainly some more development that will happen there.
