The Philadelphia Eagles depth chart is intriguing, especially at quarterback.
Okay, we’re approaching the end of August, and at the time of this story being published, we’re right at talking about being three weeks from the scheduled start of the Philadelphia Eagles’ regular season. That means you’re going to hear a lot about who’s going to possibly make this team and who isn’t.
Kyle Lauletta is gone. Maybe he’ll be back in some scout team role, but as of now, Philly is in camp with three signal-callers. One of which was the catalyst for a lot of fan angst when Philly drafted him and he was mistakenly labeled by so many as a ‘project second-string quarterback’. He was not. He was actually a ‘project third-string quarterback’. Even in knowing that, we just can’t stop talking about Jalen Hurts.
On August 20th, in a sitdown with the Philly media, Doug Pederson spoke about several of the young Eagles prospects that have impressed him. As you might imagine QB3’s name came up. Coach seems excited. That’s good to see, but as of now, it appears that some of you who believe that Hurts has already overtaken Nate Sudfeld on the depth chart may want to pump your breaks a little.
The rookie still has to learn a lot, which means, for now, Sudfeld is still on the team’s second string. Don’t worry, if you’re a Hurts fan or like some of the Inside the Iggles staff, there’s a lot of reason to believe that he won’t be there long. Here are two thoughts on the subject.
