- Physicality: Unlike most coaches, Pederson will hold three full-contact sessions during his training camp.
- Wentz’s progress: Quarterback Carson Wentz is entering his second NFL season, and fans will be clamoring to see how he looks on the field as a passer in the pocket and a leader in the huddle.
- Who steps up at CB?: The Eagles’ most glaring weakness is at cornerback, where several young players will aim to earn starting spots or significant playing time.
