According to a daily recap from NFL Draft Diamonds, wide receiver Bruce Mapp will attend the Eagles Local day that takes place 8 days before the NFL Draft.
Although he took his talents to Coastal Carolina, the 6’0, 205 lbs, wideout played for West Philadelphia Catholic High School, leading them to the 2011 PIAA 2A semifinal.
In 2016, Mapp recorded 27 receptions for 423 yards and 6 touchdowns. His best season was 2 years prior, in which he played 14 games (as opposed to the 12 he appeared in last season) and amassed 959 yards and another 6 scores, averaging 68.5 yards per game. Mapp hauled in 71 receptions that year, breaking the single-season record for Coastal.
As it happens, Mapp ended his career at Coastal Carolina as one of the school’s most prolific wideouts. Never missing a game, his 168 career receptions rank him second in school history, while his 21 consecutive games with a catch set a new school record, as did his 10-reception game against the Citadel Bulldogs in 2014. A feat he would go onto achieve later that year against Gardner-Webb.
Mapp isn’t currently projected to be taken within the seven rounds of the NFL Draft and instead could be looking to latch on to a roster as an undrafted rookie. A Local Pro Day is always a good way to cement an impression with your hometown team in the weeks leading to the Draft..and a lot can change between now and the date of the event, April 19th.
