The Philadelphia Eagles have a few youngsters eyeing breakout seasons.

It is hard to believe that the preseason has come and gone so quickly. After two up and down games, the Philadelphia Eagles look to close out their slate with one last exhibition game. This Thursday, our beloved Birds will take on the New York Jets as both prepare for the regular season.

While last week was a disaster from the start of the game until its finish, the Eagles had a few prospects stand out. This week will be no different as we can expect a few players to stand out during the preseason finale. Then, we’re off to the regular season where new fan favorites will be born.

To the casual football fan, the final game of the preseason may not seem like much to drool over, but nothing could not be farther from the truth. While it’s easy to guess who will and won’t make the roster, Philadelphia’s man behind the curtain (Howie Roseman) still has some tough decisions to work through.

The truth is every team is only as good as the depth on their roster. The Eagles are no different (remember 2017) so figuring out the backend of the 53-man roster is pivotal. With that in mind here are three players that should make the back half of the roster and make names for themselves during the regular season in breakout fashion.
