1. Zach Ertz
2. Dallas Goedert
The Eagles strangely elected to go with two tight ends to finalize the roster. They signed two guys back to the practice squad, but it will be interesting to see if they bring a third to the active roster. Considering that Ertz and Goedert will both get playing time on Sunday’s, a little insurance could be necessary here. Keep an eye on this position moving forward this week.
1. Alshon Jeffery
2. JJ Arcega-Whiteside
The Veteran starter meets rookie successor. It seems as though the Eagles drafted Alshon Jeffery’s eventual replacement in Stanford’s JJ Arcega-Whiteside. Considering they both have similar sizes and playing style, it only makes sense that Whiteside takes a backseat to what the Eagles hope to be his mentor in 2019.
1. DeSean Jackson
2. Mack Hollins
Obviously, DeSean Jackson is going to start for the Eagles. After building up a nice connection with Wentz in the offseason, the Eagles will likely keep Jackson on the field as much as possible. Mack Hollins, on the other hand, probably won’t see too much action outside of special teams.
1. Nelson Agholor
The slot position has been Nelson Agholor’s for the last few years. He’s too quick on the inside for defenders to contain. Last year, Agholor had more focus on him as he was sometimes their best weapon on the field. Now, he becomes the third-best, which means he will likely produce more while having less attention to him.
