The competition for the Eagles No. 2 job, though, has picked up. Bryce Brown flashed his unique blend of size and speed in 2012. While Brown’s looked good for the most part at camp (minus several drops as a receiver), it’s been Chris Polk who has really stood out. An undrafted free agent in 2012, Polk shed 15 pounds this offseason and looks quick and decisive. The coaches have taken notice and bumped Polk up to the first team with McCoy out.
Look for both Polk and Brown to mix in with the starters Friday night. They will be competing for playing time in their second years.
This is something of a surprise. We knew Polk was impressing in camp, but it appears that he has passed Brown on the depth chart. Anyone hoping to draft McCoy's handcuff needs to pay attention to this camp battle.
