Agholor put together a solid junior season, pulling in 104 catches for 1,313 and 12 touchdowns. In his three years on campus, he racked up 179 receptions, 2,571 yards and 20 touchdowns. He regarded as one of the best at his position in the draft. While he stands at just 6-foot, 198 pounds, he is considered one of the best route runners in the field.

According to NFL.com,Agholor's closest comparison is Ryan Broyles. Here's more:

Intelligent, instinctive receiver with an advanced feel for getting himself open against zone coverage and off man. Play speed doesn't match timed speed. Needs to force cornerbacks to respect him over the top.

The Cincinnati Bengals are now on the clock.
