PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles will look to improve their offensive line and secondary on Friday night after selecting USC wide receiver Nelson Agholor in the first round.

Chip Kelly didn’t pull the trigger on a trade that would’ve reunited him with his former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota because the price was too steep. The Eagles stayed put at No. 20 and selected Agholor to replace the departed Jeremy Maclin.

Now, they have to bolster their offensive line, safety and cornerback positions. Oregon offensive lineman Jake Fisher and Utah defensive back Eric Rowe are possibilities if they’re still available when the Eagles pick at No. 52 in the second round. Philadelphia’s third-round pick is 84th overall.
