Off-the-wall Eagles observations with ten training camp practices behind us

Here are a handful of those lesser-mentioned stories from Eagles training camp that we feel aren't earning enough discussion.

The Eagles have some monsters who are both put together and athletic. See Johnny King and Joseph Ngata.

As is the case with the cornerback position, we might be approaching gridlock in the wide receiver room. Charleston Rambo is gone, but the Birds added Johnny King, a six-foot-five, 209-pound stud. He also happens to be very fluid.

If you're looking for comps to guys that you already know, look no further than A.J. Brown. King is four inches taller than A.J. but 17 pounds lighter. Fellow rookie Joseph Ngata is six-foot-three and 217 pounds, nine pounds lighter than Brown and two inches taller. Another UDFA, Jadon Haselwood, is six-foot-two and tips the scales at 215 pounds.

The Eagles figure to keep six wideouts, and with A.J., DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and Olamide Zaccheaus almost assured of roster spots, King, Ngata, and Haselwood won't all make the team, but could you imagine being Jalen Hurts and having all of these monsters at wideout during third-down and red zone attempts? It's enough to make one's mouth water.

What the heck happened to Greedy Williams and Justin Evans?

Yeah... We can't stop talking about that secondary. So again, if four of the six roster spots are spoken for, and if K'Von Wallace is taking first-team reps now and Reed Blankenship never leaves the field when the first team is up at practice, what happens to Justin Evans and Greedy Williams?

Raise your hand if you talk Eagles football with your buddies all of the time, and you never bring up Evans and Williams up at all. Just in case you're curious, we're rising our hands over here.
