Eagles FB Leonard Weaver - He's been in the league for four years already, so why is he considered a candidate? The versatile and athletic Weaver has just 356 rushing yards and 547 receiving in 46 regular season games. Yet, he was offered the chance this past off-season to be more of a feature back in Houston where he would be the big back to complement Steve Slaton. However, Weaver's familiarity with the system used in Philadelphia and the opportunity to be a blocker, a runner and a receiver - in Weaver's words a true "halfback" - was too good to pass up. Weaver displayed his deft ability to catch the ball at the post-draft mini-camp and can be relied on to help shoulder the load in the backfield should Brian Westbrook or LeSean McCoy falter.
