Here’s an impressive Philadelphia Eagles rookie and six potential bubble guys.

Seeing the Philadelphia Eagles land rookie running back Kenneth Gainwell in Round 5 of the 2021 NFL Draft has to be seen as a win. One day, we all might be talking about this as one of the great draft steals in franchise history.

Kenneth Gainwell, running back: Unless the bottom falls out or he has some catastrophic injury (let’s hope neither scenario happens), this guy will make the roster. The Birds have finally found a complement to Miles Sanders.

Elijah Holyfield, running back: It’s beginning to look like the Birds will finally give up on Elijah Holyfield. He’s been on this team since 2019 but has yet to carry the ball in a game that counts towards the win-loss tally.

Sua Opeta, guard: He’s a good depth piece and deserves to play somewhere. Sua Opeta has proven that he belongs in the NFL, but if the Eagles keep ten offensive linemen on the 53-man roster, a very likely scenario, he may fall victim to the numbers game.

Nate Herbig, guard: Take everything that was said about Sua Opeta, replace his name with Nate Herbig’s, and you have some instant analysis on Nate Herbig.

Kayode Awosika, guard: Tell the truth. Some of you have never heard of this guy and had no idea that he was on the roster. he has an uphill climb to make this team.

Luke Juriga, center: He’s a familiar name to Philadelphia Eagles fans, but all roads probably lead to Luke Juriga being left off of the 53-man roster.

Harry Crider, center: Harry Crider is one of four centers on the current Philadelphia Eagles roster but with Jason Kelce’s return and the knowledge that Isaac Seumalo and Landon Dickerson can both play center, it’s hard to imagine a scenario where he makes the team.
