We are now 11 tactics into Philadelphia Eagles schooling camp, so I figured I might acquire some time to poll the Eagles’ media contingent on which gamers have looked great so much all through camp, and which ones have not looked so great.
For this exercising, I requested 25 Eagles media people today, all of whom have attended each individual apply (or shut adequate to it) to determine just one participant whose inventory is up, and 1 whose stock is down.
Inventory up 📈
On the stock up entrance, 9 gamers received votes:
For whole disclosure, my vote was for Watkins. I assume Sweat has had the most effective camp of anyone on the group, but Watkins has carried out the most in terms of exceeded anticipations.
Right here are the players in the previous that have gotten at least four “inventory up” votes:
|Year||Players with at minimum 4 “inventory up” votes|
|2017||Marcus Johnson (13), Nelson Agholor (4), C.J. Smith (4)|
|2018||Kamu Grugier-Hill (4), Matt Pryor (4)|
|2019||Sidney Jones (10), Miles Sanders (7)|
|2020||John Hightower (4)|
Our greatest misses as a media contingent were being Sidney Jones in 2019, and John Hightower last period. We did nail Miles Sanders in 2019, on the other hand, as perfectly as Nelson Agholor, who experienced his lone effect season in 2017. We also accurately discovered men like Marcus Johnson and C.J. Smith as gamers who entered camp as longshots, but deserved to make the staff, and did. But there have been some wrong positives.

Stock down 📉
On the “stock down” side, Andre Dillard ran absent with the voting this calendar year, with 12 out of 25 votes. It ought to be pointed out that various voters commented that they didn’t vote for Dillard because their anticipations for him were being already quite low.
My pick on the “stock down” vote was Dillard. I, far too, had small anticipations for Dillard getting into camp, but he was even worse than I expected, and hell, he was competing for a starting off position at a top quality position.
Jalen Reagor’s four votes were being also truthful, in my opinion. Following these a disappointing season in 2020, how does a vast receiver fall short a conditioning take a look at at the start of camp?
Here are the gamers in the past that have gotten at least 4 “stock down” votes:
|Year||Players with at the very least 4 “stock down” votes|
|2017||Patrick Robinson (14), Shelton Gibson (10)|
|2018||Corey Nelson (7), Isaac Seumalo (5), Chance Warmack (5)|
|2019||Clayton Thorson (9), Jordan Mailata (7), Mack Hollins (5), Stefen Wisniewski (4)|
|2020||Sidney Jones (11)|
Robinson had a person of the worst commences to camp that I have ever observed, but he obtained much better as the summer time progressed and finished up starting to be a person of the most effective slot corners in the NFL that time, creating a Substantial enjoy in the NFC Championship Match along the way.

Normally, our stock down picks have been extremely predictive of undesirable seasons.
- Shelton Gibson performed in 5 online games as a rookie, catching two passes.
- Corey Nelson obtained minimize in advance of the stop of camp.
- Isaac Seumalo bought benched 7 days 2.
- Possibility Warmack really received into nine video games in 2018. He did not wreck any games, but he was not great, both.
- Clayton Thorson was a fifth-round decide who acquired lower.
- Jordan Mailata didn’t look in any game titles in 2019.
- Mack Hollins was useless as a receiver in 2019 just before the group dropped him in-period.
- Stefen Wisniewski obtained slash. (He did go on to commence for the Tremendous Bowl-winning Chiefs).
- Sidney Jones got reduce.
So, for the most portion, like most Philadelphians, we can identify a struggling participant when we see just one, which is a negative sign for the Eagles’ first-spherical picks in 2019 and 2020.
