We have rookies, returners, and returning veterans on our list of All-Star Eagles.

We hit up Walmart and every office supply store that we could find. No graphing calculator exists that allows us to blend the eyeball test and good old-fashioned emotional outbursts. With that being said, we continue our list.

14. Darius Slay, cornerback

The good news is Darius Slay has been solid for the most part, as always. He's also the owner of one of those recognizable names. Voters love that too.

The bad news is he has missed a couple of games because of injury, and he hasn't consistently played up to the superior levels we expect of him. Do with that information what you will.

13. Josh Sweat, EDGE/defensive end

Fatigue? Some injury we haven't been told of? Who knows what's going on with Josh Sweat as of late, but two things are certain.

He began on a tear during the first nine weeks of the regular season. He has also cooled off tremendously after the bye.

12. Jordan Mailata, left tackle

Our favorite Austalian, one with the voice of an angel. Jordan Mailata perfectly blends a jovial personality with a mean streak that comes out on Monday. Not bad for a guy that didn't know how to put his helmet on when he arrived in town.

11. Fletcher Cox, defensive tackle

Is it us, or did Fletcher Cox turn the clock back a few seasons? His five sacks tie for the third most on the Eagles roster.

He has also notched 16 additional quarterback hits, three tackles for loss, two pass breakups, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.

10. Reed Blankenship, safety

Reed Blankenship has gone from undrafted rookie free agent to starter. He has also led the Eagles in total and solo tackles despite missing two games because of injury.

9. Jalen Carter, defensive tackle

If no one told you Jalen Carter was a rookie you wouldn't know. Ahead of Week 16, he is tied with Fletcher Cox for the third-highest sack total.

He has also forced a fumble. He scored on a fumble recovery, and he blocked a field goal attempt. And, who could forget his near-interception on a Patrick Mahomes spike attempt?

If he isn't the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year, there needs to be an investigation.

8. DeVonta Smith, wide receiver

On most NFL teams, DeVonta Smith is the WR1. He'll have to settle for being WR1a in Philly. He has yet to make a Pro Bowl. This seems like a great year to make that happen.
