Eagles training camp 2022: Stock up, stock down after 1st week

Eagles training camp 2022: Stock up, stock down after 1st week

It’s early.

Keep that in mind as you read this Eagles training camp stock report. The Eagles have had three practices so far this summer. One lasted 58 minutes, one lasted 1h15 and one lasted 1h30. There is a long way to go.

But every real day off of the summer, we’ll take a chance to step back and reflect and give you a few players who deserve to be in the “stock up” category and a few who belong in the ” stock down”.

Let’s go:

Store

Marcus Epps

The Eagles have been talking about Epps all offseason and he’s been proving them right so far in camp. Epps took all of the first team representatives to safety through three practices and looked very strong. He had a big interception on the first day of camp on a throw from Jalen Hurts and was very solid beyond that as well.

LB TJ Edwards

Getting Edwards off the court won’t be easy. Despite the addition of Kyzir White and Nakobe Dean, Edwards still deserves playing time and he’s already proving it this summer. The knock on Edwards is that he lacks covering ability, but that hasn’t been a problem this summer. He went all over the pitch to knock down passes.

LB Davion Taylor

Coming into this camp, Taylor was the forgotten guy in his room. While Taylor mostly ran with the two, he had some seriously impressive games over the first three days. He had a very solid practice on Friday, with an INT on a deflection and a big pass breakup on Boston Scott.

TE Dallas Goedert

Despite all the talk about AJ Brown – and he looked good too – Goedert was super reliable and consistent throughout the first part of training camp. He was Jalen Hurts’ favorite early target and is a candidate for a monster season.

S André Chachere

Interceptions in consecutive practices put you on the “stocks” list. Chachere is considered by many to be a special teams ace, but he shone on defense. After a big pick on Friday, he gained some first-team reps on Saturday and made the most of it, knocking out Hurts in the first half of team drills.

CB Mac McCain III

The Eagles have 12 cornerbacks on the roster. After Darius Slay, James Bradberry, Avonte Maddox and Zech McPhearson, eight players are fighting for one or two jobs. McCain placed himself at the top of the second tier. He was the outside corner to McPhearson with the second team and already has several impressive pass breakups.

RB Miles Sanders

I know there was a lot of talk about Sanders working with the second team on Friday — something that absolutely happened — but that’s not to say Sanders hasn’t looked good this summer. In fact, it looks even bigger and more explosive this summer. He’s broken some awesome runs so far. He still needs to work on his reception of passes, but he will be back.

Out of stock

S K’Von Wallace

With Anthony Harris getting back to work and Jaquiski Tartt still learning defense, Wallace got first-team reps the first two days and didn’t really take advantage of it. He had a few tough moments on Day 1 and on Day 3 Chachere was the guy spinning with Harris at the second safety point.

WR Devon Allen

The return to football has not been as smooth for Allen as he had probably hoped. While he said he gained 10 pounds in his attempt to return to the sport, the world-class hurdler struggled at first. Of course, that’s normal for a 27-year-old who hasn’t played football since 2016. Let’s hope he can catch up enough to really use his speed over the summer.

QB Carson Strong

Nevada’s UDFA secured a $320,000 bond, so it has a good shot at making the roster. So far in camp, however, he has shared third-team reps with outgoing third-stringer Reid Sinnett. Strong has a one-arm flare but he hasn’t connected on any deep balls. We’ve seen some notable misses over the past two days, including one that landed about 5-6 meters from the boundary. It just can’t happen.

WR Zach Pascal

The veteran receiver missed the first three days of camp with food poisoning. He’s back on the pitch but I guess his energy has been zapped. Food poisoning is an absolute bear.

DT Milton Williams

The first injury of training camp belongs to Louisiana Tech’s second-year defensive lineman. He missed Saturday’s session with an elbow injury. I hope it’s nothing serious and he’ll be back soon. The good news for Williams is that his place in the roster is pretty secure.
