The Philadelphia Eagles youth movement could end the runs of several veterans.

The average age of the Philadelphia Eagles offense, as it stands right now, is 24.5 years old. At the skill positions, the age drops to a mere 23. The youth movement is upon this Eagles franchise and some familiar faces in Philadelphia could be on their way out the door.

The fresh faces on this Philadelphia roster are hungry to make an impact and within crowded position groups like offensive line, wide receivers, and running backs, competition will certainly be steeper than it has been in year’s past.

In mid-May, predicting the depth chart is near impossible, but a few deductions can be made. The Eagles have about eight roster-worthy wide receivers and that number could get cut to five come September. On the offensive line, 12 have logged snaps for Philly and rookie Landon Dickerson makes 13 amidst the competition. Finally, at running back, the room currently houses eight runners, all of whom could end up on a 53-man roster in 2021.

Tough decisions will have to be made and if the Eagles are indeed looking to turn to youth on offense, especially with the playmaker’s, a few veterans will certainly be on the out looking in.

Let’s start by examining the running backs.
