The top four for the Philadelphia Eagles may change a few times before Week 1.
4. Kenneth Gainwell: There’s not much of a point in spending tons of time here. The NFL has a tendency to devalue running backs, partially because it’s the game’s most punishing position. For that reason, some really talented guys have recently been available later than you’d think during some of the more recent NFL Drafts. See Kenneth Gainwell if you need some evidence.
Make no mistake about it. Howie Roseman screws up the roster a lot, but fans are going to be throwing around words like ‘steal’ when they mention this guy. You just wait and see.
3. Jason Huntley: Is it wrong to say that, all of a sudden, Jason Huntley is now, quite possibly, one of the better tailbacks on this Eagles roster? He’ll have a significant amount of opportunities to prove that he should be on Philly’s roster.
2. Boston Scott: There are a few things that you’ll want to think about when you’re tossing theories about Boston Scott back and forth in your mind. One, he’ll be the second tailback on Philly’s depth chart, and he should be.
Second, he may not stay there throughout the evaluation process, and third, it stands to reason that he could be let off of the 53-man roster at camp’s end. It shouldn’t shock you if he makes this team or if he doesn’t.
1. Miles Sanders: We’re going to go ahead and assume that Miles Sanders a lock to make the roster. That’s a pretty safe assumption, right?
