Eagles Training Camp 2022: Stock up and stock up after the first week

It’s early.

Don’t forget that when reading this stock report from Eagles Training Camp. The Eagles have had three training sessions so far this summer. One lasted 58 minutes, one lasted 1:15 and the other lasted 1:30. There is a long way to go.

But every summer day we’ll take the opportunity to step back and think and give you a few worthy players to be in the “stock up” category and a few that are in the “stock down” category.

Let’s go to it:

S Marcus Epps

The Eagles have talked about Epps all out of season and he’s been holding them up really well so far during camp. Epps has taken all of the safety first team reps through three practices and looked pretty strong. He had a huge interception on the first day of camp off Galen Hurts’ throw and was really strong after that as well.

LB TJ Edwards

It won’t be easy to get Edwards off the field. Despite the addition of Kyzir White and Nakobe Dean, Edwards is still worth playing and he has already proven that this summer. The knockout for Edwards is that he lacks coverage but that wasn’t an issue this summer. He was all over the field making passes.

LB Davion Taylor

Entering this camp, Taylor was the forgotten man in his room. While Taylor mostly ran with the duo, he had some really great plays during the first three days. He had very strong training on Friday, with an INT of swerving and breaking up a big pass to Boston Scott.

TE Dallas Guedert

Despite all the talk about AJ Brown—and he sounded good, too—Goedert was very reliable and consistent throughout the first part of bootcamp. He was Jalen Hurts’ favorite target initially and is a candidate for the Monsters season.

S Andre Schacher

Objections to successive practices put you on the “stock” list. Chachere was seen by many as a special teams champion, but he shone in defence. After a big pick on Friday, he got some first-team reps on Saturday and made the most of them, getting Hurts into the first period of team practice.

CB McCain III

The Eagles have 12 corners on the list. After Darius Slay, James Bradberry, Avonte Maddox and Zech McPhearson, there are eight players vying for just one or two jobs. McCain has positioned himself at the top of the second tier. He’s been in the outside corner versus Macpherson with the second team and already has several great breakout passes.

RB Miles Sanders

I know a lot was achieved about Sanders’ work with the second team on Friday – which it just did – but that doesn’t mean Sanders hasn’t looked good this summer. In fact, it looks bigger and more explosive this summer. He’s cracked some impressive kicks so far. He still needs to work on getting him to pass but he’ll be back again.

S Kvonne Wallace

With Anthony Harris back in action and Jaquiski Tartt still learning to defend, Wallace got some first-team delegates in his first two days and didn’t get much use from them. He had his rough moments on day one and by day three, Chacher was the man to spin with Harris at safety point two.

WR Devon Allen

Returning to football has not been as smooth for Allen as he might have hoped. While he said he gained 10 pounds in his attempt to return to the sport, the world hurdler initially struggled. Of course, that’s to be expected for a 27-year-old who hasn’t played football since 2016. Hopefully he can catch up enough to really take advantage of his speed over the summer.

QB Carson Strong

UDFA of Nevada has a $320,000 guarantee, so it has a good chance of making the list. So far in camp, he’s been splitting the third team reps with incumbent Red Sennett. Strong has an arm rocket but it hasn’t made contact with any deep balls. We’ve seen notable faults in the past few days, including one that landed about 5-6 yards from the boundary. This cannot happen.

WR Zack Pascal

The veteran recipient missed the first three days of camp with food poisoning. He’s back on the field but I think his energy is drained. Food poisoning is an absolute bear.

DT Milton Williams

The first injury to training camp belonged to a second-year defensive lineman from Louisiana Tech. He missed Saturday’s session due to an elbow injury. I hope it’s not too dangerous and he’ll be back there soon. The good news for Williams is that his position on the list is completely secure.
