The Philadelphia Eagles passing game was prolific last season and DeSean Jackson was the unquestioned No. 1 wide receiver. The real question is who will emulate that production? Jeremy Maclin is a prime time candidate as he has the size, speed and skill to be ultra productive in this offense.

The Philadelphia Eagles special teams unit did not fare well last season. The coverage was average and they lacked any dynamic ability in the return game. The addition of Darren Sproles should boost the return game. The acquisition of veterans like Bryan Braman and Chris Maragos will also be key in improving the coverage units. Alex Henery will have to be much better on kickoffs and long field goals though for this group to take the next step.

LeSean McCoy was a workhorse for the Philadelphia Eagles last season as he racked up over 300 carries. The Eagles will need to spell him more this season to keep him fresh. Top backup Bryce Brown was traded so Chris Polk will shoulder the responsibility of being the primary backup ball carrier as Darren Sproles will be more of factor in the passing game.
