Let’s face it, many coaches already knew at the start of training camp the players who would comprise of their core roster heading into the regular season. Many starters were already solidified in stone and many of the backups as well. However, there were some openings and holes the Eagles needed to fill after an interesting offseason. We’ve had the chance to see players develop and lose steam over the past few weeks. Some rookies and veterans will make an immediate impact, and others will watch from the sidelines.
