If you’re like the rest of us, you can’t stop talking about all of the talent on the Philadelphia Eagles roster.

For whatever reason, it feels like it’s been six months since the Philadelphia Eagles capped a magnificent offseason with the addition of two stars to fill out their secondary. James Bradberry and Jaquiski Tartt were added on May 18th and June 17th respectively. Both satisfied huge needs.

The Birds desperately needed help in the backend of their defense and at the outside cornerback position opposite Darius Slay. Mission accomplished. The questions now are about how good this Eagles defense can be.

Philadelphia made massive upgrades on the offensive side of the ball as well. They have a nice one-two punch at just about every position where you can typically find one.

Sure, arguments can be made that it still feels like something is missing at safety. Someone else could express concerns that, while Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, and Kenneth Gainwell are talented, the running back position has three guys with the same skill set. Hopefully, Kennedy Brooks can fill a much-needed workhorse role.

It’s for those reasons, that, for now, we’ll leave the safety and tailback positions just outside of our top six positional pairings on the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster. How did our list wind up? We’re glad you asked! We can promise you that Slay and Bradberry are on it. Here’s how they ranked among the Birds’ six most attractive one-two punches.
