In the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft on Saturday, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Marvin McNutt, a wide receiver from the Iowa Hawkeyes, as the No. 194 overall pick. McNutt had been a polarizing option in the months leading up to the draft, but his strong 2011 season may have convinced the Eagles that he was worth taking a chance on.
194. Philadelphia Eagles: Iowa Hawkeyes wide receiver Marvin McNutt, 6'3, 216 pounds
Here is what Mocking the Draft had to say about McNutt prior to the draft:
Strengths: Knows how to use his body to get open in jump ball situations. Smooth in and out of his breaks. Plays with a lot of toughness. McNutt is a smart route runner who gets open because he doesn’t waste a step. Good size. Good blocker.
Weaknesses: Doesn’t have great speed and will struggle in the vertical passing game. Was largely shut down by the better corners he faced in 2011, including Oklahoma's Jamell Fleming and Nebraska's Alfonzo Dennard. Has very little burst in his game.
