The Philadelphia Eagles will be looking build upon their 2013 campaign. The Eagles have a ton of players who are fighting to make the final roster, and their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers will be extremely important. Here are five players who a ton of people will have their eyes on in Week 3.
Frances Mays is a 6-foot-9, 290 pound undrafted free agent out of Florida A&M. Mays is extremely raw, but with coaching, he could become a very good player for the Eagles. In fact, Mays could very well be a rotational player this season. He will need to have a good showing against the Steelers.
Mark Sanchez has been playing really well since becoming a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. Sanchez's career has taken a turn for the worse over the past few years, but with the coaching of Chip Kelly and a spread offense, he has the tools to excel. He might actually contend with Nick Foles for a starting job.
Beau Allen is a rookie who has been playing really well for the Eagles in preseason. Fletcher Cox is one of the league's best defensive tackles, but Allen could be a nice spell player. He also is very versatile. Knowing that, it will be interesting to see where the Eagles line him up against the Steelers.
Brad Smith is known around the league as one of the most intriguing players. His ability to cause confusion for defenses is second to none, and Smith will have an opportunity to flourish in Kelly's offense. Imagine a backfield with Smith, LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles.
Jordan Matthews has been unbelievable so far in the preseason. Matthews has the size and speed to be a really good player for the Eagles. Although the Eagles run the football a lot, their receivers are a little shaky. Riley Cooper is good, but Jeremy Maclin is coming off an ACL injury. Matthews' play couldn't have come at a better time.
