Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Running Backs

July 3, 2013   ·     ·   Jump to comments

The strength of the Philadelphia Eagles lies right in the backfield. The Eagles can go four deep at running back without a major drop-off. They appear to be bringing in five running backs to camp and no true full back.
I believe the strength in the backfield was a major recruiting tool for Howie Roseman when he finally convinced Chip Kelly to take the job. Kelly loves to run the ball and he does it in so many different ways. He gets a little bit of elite speed, quickness, good blockers, cutting ability and even some power to play with this year.
The days of one run for every eight passes are over in Philly. With great runners comes great balance and Eagles fans will see plenty of both in 2013.
