8 Eagles who are steadily earning their coach's trust, 2 question marks as 1st preseason game approaches

As training camp rolls on, many of the young Philadelphia Eagle continue to gain the trust of their coaches, but we'd like to see more from two of the question marks.

Christian Elliss, linebacker

It feels like this list loses some credibility to some degree if Christian Elliss' name isn't included. We have discussed him ad nauseam, so there are times when it seems as though continuing to beat the drum feels like overkill, but rest assured.

Tyler Steen and Josh Sills, offensive linemen

Tyler Steen may not win a starting job. It appears as though unless there's an injury that the starting right guard role belongs to Cam Jurgens. Steen is turning heads though and has shown some versatility. He has even played some left tackle at recent practices. He'll make the roster. We'll see what happens with Josh Sills.

One of three undrafted rookies to make the Eagles' 53-man roster last year, Sills has placed his legal issues behind him. Now, he is attempting to rededicate himself to his craft. His coaches have been supportive, but he'll have to earn a roster spot. Again, we have already seen him do so once before, so we know he is capable of doing so again.
