These 3 Philadelphia Eagles are primed for a breakout season in 2021.

The youth of the Philadelphia Eagles will either make or break this team moving forward. After having a relatively old team these past few years, the Eagles made it a point of emphasis to get younger and they delivered.

As a result of this infusion of youth, there is a plethora of unproven talent in Philadelphia. This unproven talent leaves a lot of room for speculation. Some say Jalen Hurts has a legitimate shot at the MVP title, while others (like Chris Simms) rank him outside of the top 40 quarterbacks in the league.

These question marks that surround the Eagles roster are not necessarily a bad thing. Sure, a lot of the guys on the roster won’t pan out, but the luxury of a rebuild is that there’s no pressure for these players to become immediate difference makers.

A few of these players, however, will exceed expectations and become difference makers. Think of Alex Singleton last year. Players that, out of nowhere, burst onto the scene and help this football team win games. Here are three Eagles to keep on your radar for a breakout season.
