Maclin is a dynamic all-around performer who excels in multiple areas on the field. He possesses elite speed and quickness and poses a problem for the opposition when the ball is in his hands. He gets a quick release off the line, runs good routes and flashes reliable hands. He’s a playmaker in the open field after making a reception and can take it to the house on any play.
Tom Marino's Ranking

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis Philadelphia probably never thought Maclin would fall this far so they changed their direction and got a great value here with Maclin. While they already have a decent slot receiver in Jason Avant, Maclin has game breaking speed and also is a great special teams returner. With Maclin in the fold, second-year WR DeSean Jackson can be removed from his return role so he won't wear down.
