player. 54. . . . Quarterback.

The Eagles are solid at the skill positions.

There’s always room to talk about Philadelphia’s offense.

Top three: Jalen Hurts, Gardner Minshew, Carson Strong

Carson Strong was one of the Eagles’ 12 rookie undrafted free agents, but the Eagles will hold a roster spot open for him. They aren’t cutting him or placing him on the practice squad so another team can swoop in and steal him.

The low man on the depth chart: Reid Sinnett

Before Carson Strong’s addition, Reid Sinnett would have been the third quarterback on the depth chart, but with Strong potentially having a higher ceiling, things aren’t as rosy for the former San Diego Torero as they once were.

. Running back. . player. 54. .

Top three: Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott

There are no surprises here. We’ve known this for a while.

The low man on the depth chart: Kennedy Brooks

Kennedy Brooks is fully capable of landing ahead of Jason Huntley on the depth chart, but as an undrafted rookie, his journey in the NFL won’t begin there.

. . . Wide Receiver. . player. 54

Top three: A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins

If you want to be technical and argue over outside versus slot receivers, we can probably agree that A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith can play inside or outside, but for not, we’ll state Quez Watkins, Greg Ward, and Devon Allen can sit on the depth chart in that order at the slot.

The low man on the depth chart: Lance Lenoir

Lance Lenoir was the last wide receiver added to the team, and once roster cuts are made, unless he shows Philly’s coaches a ton during the preseason, he’ll be among the first to receive his walking papers.
