2. Ian Book, QB

The Eagles' quarterback position is as solidified as it gets around the NFL. Of course, last year's breakout from Jalen Hurts and the young quarterback making it all the way to the Super Bowl headlines the storylines, here.

Hurts is well on his way to being a top-five quarterback in this league, if he's not there already. Behind Hurts is the newly-signed Marcus Mariota, whose name has been in plenty of recent conversations thanks to the recently-released Netflix series, "Quarterback."

Mariota comes to Philly as a highly capable backup and will give Hurts the right type of passer to relieve him in case of injury.

Philadelphia also drafted Tanner McKee out of Stanford this year. The sixth-round pick will likely take on the third string role, which would then leave 2021 fourth-round pick Ian Book as the odd man out. Book spent his rookie year with the Saints and was then waived last fall, only to be claimed by the Eagles.

Book has experience starting an NFL game, but the potential of McKee seems far greater than Book at this point. The former Notre Dame starter doesn't look like an NFL quarterback, unfortunately. He'll find his way to waivers again after spending last season with Philadelphia.
