Philadelphia Eagles' Top 5 Breakout Candidates for 2014
USA TODAY Sports

If Nick Foles’ 2013 season is any indication, the Philadelphia Eagles are primed to have several players break out in the second year of the Chip Kelly era.

Zach Ertz, Cedric Thornton and Mychal Kendricks are just a few of the candidates who have a shot at reaching NFL stardom with another offseason under their belts.

Of course, not every Eagles player can be listed—only those who satisfy the criteria below most effectively will grab a spot in these rankings.

  1. The player must have displayed significant ability and potential during either the 2013 season or this offseason.
  2. The player cannot already be a well-known name outside of Philadelphia—this means no Foles or LeSean McCoy.
  3. The player must have high upside that wasn’t reached for whatever reason in 2013—be it adjusting to the new scheme on offense or defense, being buried on the depth chart, or being hindered by injury.

Becoming an NFL household name isn’t easy, but these candidates have the ability and opportunity to break out in 2014.
