Jalen Hurts has some weapons at his disposal and the best offensive line in the NFL to protect him.

Running back: Kenneth Gainwell, D'Andre Swift, Rashaad Penny, Boston Scott

This part of the depth chart hasn't changed in months. Trey Sermon and Kennedy Brooks had opportunities to make waves during the preseason. Both failed to do so.

Wide receiver: A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, Olamide Zaccheaus

A new question is being asked of late though. Do the Eagles need to carry six wide receivers? What if they only carried five and kept a spot open to add someone at another position? We can debate who the fifth and sixth guys are, but we know who the first four are.

Tight end: Dallas Goedert, Jack Stoll

Grant Calcaterra is our choice to round out a possible trio as Philly's third tight end. He is ahead of Tyree Jackson and Brady Russell on the depth chart, but we have seen Philly introduce an initial 53-man roster with two names on it before.

Those two names were Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, but you get the idea. You understand where we're coming from, right?

Offensive line: Jason Kelce, Jordan Mailata, Landon Dickerson, Cam Jurgens, Lane Johnson, Tyler Steen, Jack Driscoll, and Fred Johnson

There are no arguments here, right? Is everybody good? Cool! Let's move on. It's time to discuss the defense.
