A trade brings the Philadelphia Eagles Oklahoma RB Rhamondre Stevenson.

The Philadelphia Eagles have a potential star running back in Miles Sanders but the depth chart becomes iffy after him. There’s a solid pass-catching option in Boston Scott, a player who averaged less than two yards per carry last season in Jordan Howard, and someone who has -12 career rushing yards in Adrian Killins.

What does this group lack? A consistent, big-bodied runner who is capable of grinding out the tough yards in between the tackles. That’s exactly who the Eagles will trade up for in this scenario. The running back needy Falcons select at pick 182 and at pick 183, so the Birds leapfrog them in this deal with Kansas City.

Rhamondre Stevenson‘s not the fastest or most agile, but the Eagles don’t need a guy like that. Steveson is a physical runner who is extremely tough to bring down at first contact. In short-yardage and goal-line situations, he has the frame and grit to keep his legs moving in the trenches.

Miles Sanders is the bonafide RB1 for this squad, but a complementary running back can be beneficial to this team in many ways. Sanders and Scott have similar playstyles, so a physical runner like Stevenson could keep opposing defenses on their toes.
