[tps_header]9. Philadelphia Eagles running backs[/tps_header]
LeSean McCoy has been a top performer in the NFL for the past several years, and in his first year with head coach Chip Kelly, McCoy led the league with 1,607 rushing yards and 2,146 yards from scrimmage. Philadelphia also added Darren Sproles this offseason, and while he is already 30 years old, he can still certainly provide a dynamic weapon within Kelly’s offense. Sproles had 220 rushing yards to go with 604 receiving yards (on 71 catches) and four touchdowns with the New Orleans Saints in 2013. A backfield with McCoy and Sproles is a scary thought.
The Eagles are also high on third-year back Chris Polk, who will ideally be able to spell McCoy for stretches while remaining productive. TCU product Matthew Tucker is a special teamer who provides depth and at 6-1, 227 pounds also gives Philadelphia a bruiser out of the backfield if needed. He had 34 career touchdowns in college but only saw action in two games as a rookie in 2013.
