2016 Philadelphia Eagles QB Preview
Author – Bryan Trulen
#10 Chase Daniel 5’11” 225 8th Year, Missouri
Chase signed a lucrative free agent deal with Philly after spending the past 3 Years in Kansas City learning the Andy Reid/Doug Pederson system. He has been a QB who has showed up extremely well during exhibition play and in his two regular season starts in place of Alex Smith. Chase is a fundamentally sound naturally accurate quarterback who has shown the ability to get the ball to his playmakers. Chase also is a playmaker himself as he is legitimate threat running the football.
Weak areas of chases game are his lack of NFL arm strength and inability to see from within the pocket. Chase is 5’11” and simply struggles when forced to hang in the pocket and survey down the field. If Bradford struggles at any point during 2015, expect Chase however’ to receive a legitimate opportunity to make the Starting QB job his in Philly. He has waited a while for this type of opportunity and may run with it for as long as possible.
#11 Carson Wentz 6’5″ 237 Rookie, North Dakota State
Carson enjoyed a meteoric rise to celebrity from January – May 2016. There is considerable substance behind all of the hype being generated around him however. He reminds us at QB Film Room of a smoother version of Colts QB Andrew Luck when he was coming out of Stanford. Carson played within a pro style system at North Dakota State and put on display traits such as having a rhythmic feel to his throws, ability to anticipate throws and the ability to throw effortlessly while on the move. Carson already possesses high end NFL arm talent as a rookie. Intangibles wise Carson has it all as he is a certified gym rat, highly intelligent and savvy with the media. Carson is an innate leader who inspires his teammates and we would not be surprised to see him instantly become the vocal and inspirational leader of the Eagle locker room when his time to play comes. Carson has a Pro-Bowl ceiling but he will not be forced into action until he is ready to do so and may not take a regular season snap if Philly’s QB Plan stays in tact during 2016.
