Mock drafts, rumor mills, speculation about players potentially joining the Eagles has grabbed the excitement of fans for years.

    For me it was luke kuechly, I really thought we were gonna trade up around the panthers for him at the time as along with that notorious corner drought there was also the lb draught. Then I thought that he would drop past the panthers because they had your boy big Beas. At least they hit on Jordan hicks and signed Nigel

The Eagles already had one of the league’s best tight ends in Zach Ertz who in his first five years has matched the likes of both Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten in their first five seasons.

Now add a highlight reel rookie in Dallas Goedert who led college tight ends in deep receptions and yards.

These aren’t the tight ends of the past. The duo of Ertz and Goedert could cause mis-match nightmares for defenses.

How will the Eagles use Ertz and Goedert at the same time? Will Richard Rodgers be able to hold off Billy Brown for the final TE spot?

It is time to preview the tight ends right here on Locked on Eagles!

The Eagles may have the deepest, most dynamic receiving group in franchise history. With an established #1 WR in Alshon Jeffery, an elite slot receiver in Nelson Agholor, a deep threat in Mike Wallace that has gone under the radar in two previous seasons with Baltimore, and two promising youngsters in Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson, the Eagles are locked and loaded at wide receiver now and into the future.

Is Jeffery a true #1? How much of an upgrade with Wallace be over Torrey Smith? Is Shelton Gibson or Mack Hollins the more promising prospect?

We answer all that and more on another edition of the Locked on Eagles podcast!

For the first time since LeSean McCoy was traded, the Eagles have a dynamic backfield heading into training camp with young and experienced bruisers, efficient pass blockers, and pass catchers out of the backfield with Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, and Darren Sproles manning the position for 2018.

Who will lead the position in carries and touches? What will Darren Sproles’s role be in his final NFL season? In the four-man race for the fourth and likely final RB spot will Matt Jones, Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, or Donnel Pumphrey come out on top?

All that and more on another installment of the Locked on Eagles podcast “Positional Preview” edition!
