Philadelphia Eagles offensive roster projections

Quarterbacks (3): Jalen Hurts, Joe Flacco, Gardner Minshew

Dare we say the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback is the weak link on this unit? Jalen Hurts has earned the opportunity to start, and he’s shown improvement. Still, no one knows how short the leash is.

Also, this QB room looks much better with Gardner Minshew than it did with Nick Mullens.

Running backs (4): Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Kenny Gainwell, Jordan Howard

Like it or not, Jordan Howard will probably make this team. He’s 26 years old and plays like he just turned 36, but Jason Huntley’s injury (even though he’s probably the best returner) may put him on the short-term IR once he’s ready to go. Might Philly add him when he’s ready

Wide receivers (5): DeVonta Smith, Jalen Reagor, Quez Watkins, Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside

Travis Fulgham and John Hightower had their opportunities to take J.J. Arcega-Whiteside‘s job, and they didn’t do it. Like it or not, JJAW is back for yet another run.

Tight ends (3): Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert, Tyree Jackson

The Philadelphia Eagles have yet to place Tyree Jackson on the physically unable to perform list or on the injured reserve. This is a spot to watch as there’s no guarantee that Zach Ertz doesn’t get traded. There’s also a possibility that Philly carries two tight ends on the initial 53-man roster.

Offensive line (10): Jordan Mailata, Isaac Seumalo, Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks, Lane Johnson, Andre Dillard, Nate Herbig, Jack Driscoll, Landon Dickerson, Le’Raven Clark

We’ve known this is how this unit would look for a while, with the exception of Le’Raven Clark. He’s pretty good though. He’s definitely better than Matt Pryor and Brett Toth.
