Well I dont think Vaitai and Seumalo should see starting time. But we know they should be able to make improvements as good back ups if they are needed. Smallwood could be ready for a break out season. Still think we need to draft a big back.

If the stars line up just right in the draft or if we can move up to get the RB, Fournette.
I am no scout, but from what I have seen I think he could be a once in a decade type talent.
He plows through linemen and if you are a corner or safety, don't even think about taking him on one on one.
A dream scenario in my opinion, but man can this kid play Football.

Well the big jump we are going to want to see is Wentz.....But would be huge to see Seumalo and Big V take big strides in year 2 as well.....Jalen Mills should be better also showed flashes as a rook but really only direction for him to go is up

Seumalo to me should see starting time I really want him to win the starting LG spot or even C.....Big V should have a tougher time seeing the field but JP health hasn't been the most consistent and well Lane has had his issues being available as well

Adoree Jackson visiting Eagles......I do like Adoree and he brings the extra value of being a return man.....Had O snaps as well but not expecting much of that in the NFL.....Would not take him at 14 though and don't think he makes it to us in the 2nd

I completely agree. The only big step up this year needs to come from Wentz. Nothing else really matters.

I want to see Seumalo make the jump and steal the starting C job from day 1 he showed flashes of really good play last year but young mistakes as well. Hope he can clean up them and come out the gates strong and dominate the line of scrimmage. I want Big V to grow and make big strides and see him push Johnson and make both of them better for next year when JP hangs it up one of them can swing to the left side and fill his role. I think we all hope that with the offensive pieces we picked up that Wentz will show us that he truly is a franchise QB and can lead this team on a playoff run.

Just going through the roster and see our FB Bonnet still here. Don't really know much about him except believe he went to school w/ Wentz. We're talking about getting a RB for those tough yds - why not him? The guy avg'd 4.8 yds/carry and almost 11 yds/rec. Mathews will be gone, Sproles in his last yr, so go get his replacement - the newer, shifty, RB/receiver type. Doubt it will happen for Bonnet, but we did use a substitute lineman in short ydg last yr and would like to see Doug convert one of them at least. Short ydg and extra blocker on deep plays. Know he wants a FB but said it's a luxury we can't afford. If a guy like that can come in for 2 downs, I don't care if he's called a FB, RB or whatever as long as he can get those short yds.

These Kelce haters. Seu hasn't played a snap at C in the NFL and Kelce is a huge help for Wentz in reading D's and resetting. I don't see anybody on this team who's better at C right now than Kelce. Not saying he couldn't be traded, but think Doug wants to build continuity while training in the new C and supporting Wentz as best we can. Kelce is a very smart player. Must have been tough taking care of a rookie QB with the carousel that was out OL last yr. That said think it will be the last yr for both Kelce and JP.

No,he's no Zeke.He's good but not as good as him.See no need to move up to get him

He's finally got some decent WR's to throw to.They "other guys" I believe were merely in there so Wentz could get year 1 under him.No we should see some LONG pass plays(and those rare completions without drops lol)

Yep,playing with Wentz should mean he has the cadence down(aka timing).As long as our O line can open somedaylight he should be able to get those tough yards(or use as a decoy lol)

My only gripe with him is he is a tad small.But not much he can do about that

He gets to the 2nd level, just can't blow it up. Did something right to get to 2 Pro Bowls. Solidifying that LG spot this yr will help.

Quite possible Cohen goes undrafted.if so grab him along with Conner(value) and we should be ok for awhile at RB

Again how can you know what a player can do until given the chance to see them????? Seumalo hasn't taken a snap at C in the NFL you are correct but he played C in college not really unthinkable he can play the spot....Could we lose something possibly could also gain something as well...The decision doesn't have to be made right away said I would love to see Seamulo win the job either at G or C not handing anything away

Must be a reason they didn't bring him in at C at all last yr. Isn't it better to bring him in slowly, or should we just strip Wentz of all Kelces' knowledge and experience?

Typed that before your reply. Sure, get him in there on a few plays here and there. Don't know where they think he'll fit best, we're actually guard rich right now - not a bad place to be after being thin so long.

I am all in the spirit of competition Kelce is the starting C right now but if a young guy can step up and play on par with him throughout camp I truly believe going young  would be best for the team long-term.....
