Philadelphia Eagles: Breakdown and Depth Chart Analysis at Running Back
Michael Perez/Associated Press

After one season as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, Chip Kelly has established his brand of football.

And it's a run-oriented offense.

While Kelly coaxed a record-breaking campaign out of second-year quarterback Nick Foles, it was LeSean McCoy and the ground game that set up the scoring.

As a team, the Eagles ranked among the premier running teams in the game. Philadelphia was fourth in rushing attempts (566) last season, but first overall in total rushing yards (2,566) and yards per carry (5.1). The 19 rushing touchdowns were the second-best mark in the league.

McCoy earned an All-Pro selection for his phenomenal season-long performance, and he’s now a two-time Pro Bowler and two-time AP All-Pro player. He’s firmly entrenched as the team’s go-to running back, and a case could be made that he’s the most talented back in the National Football League.

After McCoy, the depth chart could be up for grabs. The organization currently has six halfbacks on the roster. At the very least, three will make the 53-man roster, and there’s a good chance Kelly will keep four. Here’s what the current top-five depth chart looks like in reverse order.
