Carson Wentz, Jalen Hurts, Nate Sudfeld are shoo-ins to make the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster.
This one’s obvious. Carson Wentz proved he was one of the league’s best quarterbacks by taking backups and practice squad players to the playoffs. To be sacked 37 times, lose the top three receivers in your offense, and still put up 4,039 yards, 27 touchdowns, a mere seven interceptions, and a 63.9 completion percentage is astonishing.
Not to mention, he lost Zach Ertz, Lane Johnson, and Brandon Brooks at various points of the end of the 2020 regular season.
Whether you like it or not, Jalen Hurts is here to stay. He likely won’t be ready to play immediately over an extended period of time if there’s a need. COVID-19 has affected the transition into the NFL, so it’s a safe assumption that Nate Sudfeld is going to be the backup to start the year.
