Britain Covey is a undrafted free agent from Utah who has been shining at Eagles training camp. He stands at 5-foot-8 and weighs only 173 pounds. He has been impressing the Eagles coaching staff. He was a high school QB who moved to WR at Utah. He set the school record for career punt return yards. Covey’s ability as a slot receiver and his special teams ability gives him a great shot at making the team. Covey has always been the underdog and he seems to relish that role. Being a former undersized QB seems to be the way a lot of slot receivers have made their path in the NFL. I am really looking forward to seeing Covey in action in the preseason opener against the Jets.
