Training camp can only offer so much in terms of analyzing a player. After all, Nick Foles didn't even win the starting job last offseason, and he ended up running Chip Kelly's offense to near-perfection during the regular season.
So that doesn’t mean a player’s performance in training camp defines how he will do in 2014. But it does offer an input as to how fast he is picking up the playbook and whether his skills project as well to the next level as the coaching staff initially anticipated.
Progress reports for the Philadelphia Eagles players are based only on training camp practices so far, and how the player does during this Friday’s preseason contest will tell much more than how he does against his teammates during the week.
