Gainwell could be a great addition to the Philadelphia Eagles offense.

Former Memphis Tiger Kenneth Gainwell is an absolute weapon on the offensive side of the ball. A headache anytime he gets on the football field, opposing defenses will need to know where he is at all times.

Adding this young man to the Philadelphia Eagles running backroom room could prove to be a complete steal. Someone who’s capable of adding value to both the running game and the passing game, the Memphis product is a versatile game-changer, one that fans will more than likely adore and sooner rather than later.

Aside from his offensive value, Gainwell brings a burst to the punt return and kick return game. Considered a top-100 selection in this year’s draft, the Eagles front office was lucky to land the rising star with the 150th pick.

The idea of Gainwell and Miles Sanders lined up in the same backfield will give defensive coordinators nightmares. Both players have the potential to be a match-up nightmare in the passing game and the running game. Eagles fans should be excited about the young runner’s potential.
