Philadelphia Eagles offensive depth chart projections

Two quarterbacks: Jalen Hurts and Gardner Minshew (Reid Sinnett makes the practice squad)

Four running backs: Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Kenneth Gainwell, Jason Huntley

Six wide receivers: A.J. Brown and Zach Pascal (X – primary), DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins (Y – secondary), Jalen Reagor and Britain Covey (Z- slot)

Three tight ends: Dallas Goedert, Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra

Random notes: At the risk of initiating what some of you would call a jinx, this unit has the potential to be great for a long time, but aside from Kenneth Gainwell and Kennedy Brooks, Philly’s stable of running backs may look different next year.

The Birds could keep three signal-callers. If so, Reid Sinnett has proven to be the man for the job so far (actually, arguments can be made that he’s been the most consistent of Philly’s signal-callers). Still, for now, we’ll keep the count at two.

Nine offensive linemen

The best O-line in the business is led by the best O-line coach in the business, Jeff Stoutland. Here’s his unit.

Two left tackles: Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard

Two left guards: Landon Dickerson and Sua Opeta

Two centers: Jason Kelce and Cam Jurgens

One right guard: Isaac Seumalo

Two right tackles: Lane Johnson and Jack Driscoll

Random thoughts: It’s highly likely that the Birds keep ten guys in which case, Jack Anderson, Le’Raven Clark, and Kayode Awosika will be in the mix, but it’s been hard to get rid of some of the guys we’d be forced to part with on defense. Plus this is a versatile group consisting of several guys that can play multiple positions.
