The Eagles selected Penn State RB Miles Sanders with the 53rd pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. The #1 RB in the 2016 recruiting class spent his first 2 years on campus playing behind Saquon Barkley but flashed with 6.7 yards per carry on 56 attempts. He finally got his shot at lead duties in 2018 and impressed. Sanders took 220 carries for 1,274 yards (5.8 YPC) and 9 TDs, adding 139 more yards on 24 receptions. Then he crushed the Combine, registering a 73rd percentile SPARQ score at 5’11 and 211 pounds. Sanders is relatively inexperienced, dances behind the line of scrimmage too often and has ball-security concerns after fumbling 5 times last year. But he has the size, athleticism and pass-catching ability to develop into a lead back as a pro. He joins a crowded backfield in Philly alongside Jordan Howard, Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement and Josh Adams. Sanders might already be the most talented of the bunch, though. And Howard is set to hit free agency next offseason.
Eagles RB Miles Sanders suffered a left knee injury in the Wild Card loss to the Seahawks. He was in a brace and on crutches on Monday but told reporters that he doesn't need surgery. We'll keep an eye on this, but it doesn't sound like something that'll impact his offseason. Sanders figures to fly off the board early in 2020 fantasy drafts after totaling 716 yards and 4 TDs over his final 7 games.
