The Philadelphia Eagles have a few playmakers on the roster.

When the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster is mentioned, the first thing that’s often brought up is the lack of talent the Birds have. It’s easy to pick apart the giant holes across the Eagles’ depth chart and pick on them for the flaws that they have, but despite that, there are difference-making players on this roster.

Offensively, they have the versatile running back Miles Sanders to lean on. They also have a talented pair of tight-ends in Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert and some talented players that could rank among the league’s best at their position if they get coached up and healthy.

The offensive line took a huge hit in the injury department during the 2020 season, and it showed throughout the entire year. The great news is Brandon Brooks, Lane Johnson, Isaac Seumalu, and Andre Dillard will all be healthy and ready to go for 2021. That alone will be a huge boost to the team.

On the defensive side of the ball, Philly has one of the best defensive lines in the NFL, and a game-changer at cornerback in the form of Darius Slay. The point is this. The Philadelphia Eagles have a nice crop of veterans that they can lean on moving forward, and that could go a long way in helping this team find success in 2021.
