The Eagles have plenty of talented backs on their roster, but there’s no one who can carry them over the middle.
Here are some of the best of the bunch.
Robert Kelley Robert Kelley is the type of player that brings the Eagles depth and experience to the team’s running back position.
He’s a 6-foot-2, 210-pound, two-time Pro Bowl selection who can take over games and can win games in the middle of the field.
Jason Kelce Jason Kelciak has had his moments in the NFL.
But he’s not a sure thing to make the team, either.
He played just one game in 2017.
Kelce has the size and skill set to be a big-play threat, but he has to get his hands on the ball more.
Michael Brooks Michael Brooks is a versatile back who could be a key to the Eagles’ future.
He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
Brooks is more of a pass-catcher and he has the speed to be an effective running back, but his blocking needs to improve.
Jeremy Langford Jeremy Langfells speed and strength make him a threat to rush the passer.
Langford is a natural athlete who can play outside and in the slot.
But his lack of size and weight are major concerns.
Mike Tolbert Mike Tolbers ability to be the third back on the field is something to build on.
The former quarterback has a knack for getting yards after the catch, which could be the difference in the Eagles running game.
Zach Ertz Zach Ertzes speed, agility and explosiveness make him an intriguing option as a rookie, but injuries and inconsistency have kept him out of the Eagles lineup.
Evan Engram Evan Engrams versatility could make him the Eagles starting running back this season.
He can play wide receiver, tight end and running back.
Evan Mathis Evan Mathises versatility could be an issue for the Eagles, but it could be something that could work in his favor this season as he gets more reps.
Brandon Brooks Brandon Brooks could be in the mix for a roster spot.
He has the talent and the potential to make an impact on special teams.
Chris Polk Chris Polk is a solid all-around player who could help the Eagles on special team play.
Polk has the quickness to make plays in space and the strength to help protect the football.
Mike Gesicki Mike Gesikis athletic ability could make a difference as a receiver, but if he struggles to stay healthy, he could be pushed to the bench.
John Ross John Ross is a physical freak who can make plays down the field, but the Eagles are missing their best wide receiver.
The team needs to find a way to get Ross on the roster, and the Eagles could do it by signing a veteran free agent.
Michael Oher Michael Ohers versatility could help him get a look as a backup to Ryan Mathews.
If he doesn’t impress, the Eagles may look elsewhere for a starter.
Mike Gillislee Mike Gilliels versatility could give the Eagles some extra talent on special defense.
Gilliess ability to catch the ball and run routes could be used as a weapon on special downs.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins Austin Sefarian-Jenks speed, size and explosivity make him one of the most intriguing offensive players in the league.
He also has the athleticism to make big plays downfield.
Austin Hooper Austin Hoopers size and speed could be valuable for the offense as a blocker, but some of his struggles against the run could be offset by his talent.
Jeremy Maclin Jeremy Maclins speed and ability to make catches could make his role on the offense more important.
He could be useful as a punt returner, but most teams would love to see him contribute more on offense.
Kiko Alonso Kiko Alcaraz has a lot of potential, but they’re not necessarily in the same league.
Alcarazi could be on the verge of a breakout season in the right offense.
Tyrell Williams Tyrell Willson is a long, athletic tight end with great hands.
He will be a valuable weapon for the team as they move to a more pass-heavy offense.
Brandon Graham Brandon Graham is an athletic tight ends type that could provide a spark on special units.
Chris Owusu Chris Owumu has the skill set, size, speed and versatility to be one of their most dynamic receivers.
His ability to win with his hands and ability on special plays could make an instant impact.
DeSean Jackson DeSean has become a big part of the Redskins offense, and if he can stay healthy he could become the team to beat.
Zach Zenner Zach Zenners potential to be more of an inside receiver could make the Eagles better at running the
