Let's talk about some of the guys on the Eagles' offensive depth chart.

The Eagles have made some additions on offense, but even though the starting lineup won't change, we may see changes with the reserves.

1. Tanner McKee, quarterback

Tanner McKee and Ian Book take up residency as co-QB3's on the first Eagles depth chart. We're ready to state the former has a much higher ceiling than the latter.

If the rookie has a better showing during the preseason, Book may find himself off of the 53-man roster.

2. Trey Sermon, running back

A fan favorite of sorts, Trey Sermon is believed to be the fifth tailback on the depth chart behind, in no particular order, Kenneth Gainwell, D'Andre Swift, Rashaad Penny, and Boston Scott.

Philly's game versus the Ravens will allow him an opportunity to put some distance between himself and Kennedy Brooks, and dare we say it? He may have a chance to place himself in the discussion as one of the top four RBs.

3. Joseph Ngata, wide receiver

Training camp provides opportunities for young hopefuls. They're just asked to make the most of those opportunities when they present themselves. Joseph Ngata has done that and then some.

You want highlights. The six-foot-three, 217-pound wideout provides that. You want consistency? He has shown that as well. Now, we get to see if this translates to in-game action.

The skill positions get love on ever NFL roster. How about we talk about some of the guys that do the dirty work.
