What to expect from Philadelphia Eagles offensive rookies who aren’t WRs
Much has been made about the wide receivers the Philadelphia Eagles added in the most recent draft, but what can we expect from their other offensive rookies?
Welcome to one of the most interesting offseasons in Philadelphia Eagles history. The NFL Draft is a distant memory. The rookies haven’t reported to their camp, and they won’t. There probably won’t be any of the familiar voluntary or mandatory minicamps either. Then, there are training camps to consider. They are also in question.
If we’re lucky enough to see any real football (everyone’s fingers are crossed), there are questions about how much the new “Birds” will contribute. Then, there are other questions that are more pressing. How is Philadelphia or any of the other 31 teams going to build a roster? How are teams going to evaluate their new additions?
For Philly, that includes five new free agents, two players that have been acquired via trade that will be expected to contribute immediately (Darius Slay and Marquise Goodwin), ten draftees, and 13 players that were added after the selection meeting.
Much has been made about the wide receivers, but what about the other rookies who will be expected to contribute to a team that struggled on offense in 2019? Where do they fit in? Let’s shed a little light on the question that everyone’s asking.
