The Philadelphia Eagles have some forgotten gems on their roster.

Regardless of what you believe the Philadelphia Eagles will or won’t accomplish this season, you have to acknowledge the fact that, when it all comes down to it, everyone that’s a fan of this team will be glued to the screen for each of the 17 regular-season games that the Birds participate in during the 2021-2022 season.

Then, once we all pass the midway point of the campaign, fingers will be crossed as the hope will be this team is better than we thought and there’s a chance for a postseason berth.

In order for that to happen and in order for Philly to have a shot at postseason contention, two things have to happen. The stars have to play like stars and do so on a week-in and week-out basis, and some of the young bucks have to step up show off.

Every single season, fans look at this roster and wonder who the surprises might be. Who can make us all ask “where did that come from?”. Ladies and gentlemen, you are in luck. The Birds have a lot of unproven and, in some cases, forgotten guys that could develop into difference-makers. We’ll discuss four here now. Look for them to show up and show off this season. Here they are in no particular order.
