With the Philadelphia Eagles set to take on the Pats, keep an eye on these 3.

Let us all thank the football gods (deep breath), that Birds football is finally back in town. Seeing Philadelphia Eagles fans fill Lincoln Financial field and lose their minds over the first preseason game was a joy to watch and the truest form of beauty.

While the City of Brotherly Love was rocking in the stands, the Birds were hard at work as head coach Nick Sirianni, rolled out the new-look Eagles. His team would eventually fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but there was a lot to like about the product.

We all have another opportunity to dissect this Eagles team. In game two, we should see a larger sample size from the starters, but it’s the depth pieces that should really intrigue football fans. Here are three underrated prospects that we should all keep an eye on.
