A new year is upon us, and the Eagles have many players who could make a leap forward. The outlook for this year’s squad is optimistic.

Let’s take a look at some players who could have a breakout season.


Jordan Davis

Jordan Davis is entering his third season with the Eagles and is in a position to take a big step forward. With Fletcher Cox’s retirement, the Eagles will look to Jordan Davis for a bigger role.

Davis is young, coming into this season at 24. He has had the benefit of learning behind Cox for two years, and now it’s his time to take over. Davis was seen at the Eagles Autism Challenge, where he looked noticeably thinner.

Davis is a big guy, and his conditioning was always in question. This season, you can tell he is in better shape, and he is ready to embrace the role of a starting defensive tackle.

Cam Jurgens

Jurgens can break out for the same reason Jordan Davis can break out. His predecessor retired. Now that Kelce is gone, Jurgens will start at Center. The Eagles drafted Cam Jurgens, knowing he would be the guy once Kelce retired, and now his time has come. Jurgens played some right guard last year, so it will be interesting to see him transition back to center this upcoming season.

Cam Jurgens has a ton of potential, and the Eagles are looking to him to be their center for the next 5-10 years. As fans, we can’t expect him to be Jason Kelce. Jurgens is his own person, and the hope is that he will be able to play center without having a huge drop-off in talent.


Both Jordan Davis and Cam Jurgens have learned from some of the best players at their positions. It is time for them to step up and fill the roles they were drafted to fill.
