With training camp less than a month away, it is time to conclude talks about the offseason and start looking ahead to the start of the 2014 NFL season. The Philadelphia Eagles had an eventful offseason with the dismissal of DeSean Jackson. However, the Eagles did add pieces through the draft and free agency that will need to play big roles for the team to have success this year. Here are the top-5 additions.

This third-round pick has the potential to climb his way up the depth chart before season’s end. While he wont see as many snaps as other wide receivers on the team, Huff has the skill and desire to make a huge impact whenever the opportunity may be given to him.

The Eagles’ first-round selection may not see an abundance of snaps during his rookie year, but there is a great chance he will be on the field during pass-rushing opportunities. With his build and skill, Smith has potential to make a huge impact during those situations.

3. Darren Sproles

Matthews is likely to start the season as the slot receiver, and after rave reviews during OTAs, there is a legitimate chance he steals some snaps from Riley Cooper.

He will arguably be the newcomer under the most pressure in 2014. Already having a starting safety spot solidified, Jenkins has the ability to make game-changing hits, as well as being useful in coverage. He will have a ton on his plate this year.
