Three things to know: EaglesCamp Day two, Wentz looked sharp, cornerback battle update and more

27 July 2018 Eagles News

Day two of training camp is in the books and realistically it was their first real day of camp. Although they weren’t in full pads, the intensity was up and the team looks good. Here’s three things you should know after today’s practice.

1. Carson Wentz dusted off his arm

Wentz was slinging the ball today and looked very good doing so. He competed 9/12 passes in team sessions and dropped some dimes.

He’s well on track to return to the field sooner rather than later. Comeback season is in play for Wentz and for the Eagles, that’s a great thing.

2. Jalen Mills a top cornerback?

Mills should everyone yet again why he was the most played player at that position on the team last year. Mills should up today and put on a clinic.

Mills gets a lot of slack mostly because he had a rough few games to end last season. But, he’s a consistent cornerback who’s shown he can play with the best. Also, he’s still young and only going to get better and covering guys like Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace and Alshon Jeffery is only going to make him better. With slot cornerback a concern, it’s almost a lock to take Mills’ name out of the mix. He looks primed to be the team’s best outside cornerback this season and going forward.

3. Mack Hollins season

It’s an important camp for Hollins because with the Eagles latest additions, his spot could be in jeopardy. But, with Jeffery on the sidelines for now, Hollins is getting the first team rep and he’s taking full advantage.

Hollins needs to prove he can carry a big workload and early on he’s doing just that. Working with his former wide receivers coach, he’s at an advantage and seems destined to have a big season.

Tomorrow the Eagles will be in full pads which means it’s going to be live. A lot will be learned from tomorrow’s practice so make sure to tune in tomorrow.
