The Philadelphia Eagles have the pieces intact to remain a perennial contender in the NFC East. Chip Kelly’s first season as head coach saw the team capture a division-best 10 wins, setting a franchise record for both points scored and total yards gained.
The defense really clicked under new coordinator Billy Davis, despite the lack of a bonafide superstar. As a result, the Eagles reeled off seven wins in their final eight regular season games, rebounding from a 3-5 start.
The team will have major decisions to make regarding impending free agent wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, each of whom is a key piece of the Eagles’ offense. Still, GM Howie Roseman will undoubtedly have his eye on a slew of prospects in the upcoming NFL draft, as the Eagles constantly stress competition at every position.
Roseman and Kelly would be wise to keep watch on the following five players, as each could be a key fit on the 2014 Eagles.
