Former Eagles scout and now writer Daniel Jeremiah did a piece this week on the top 10 NFL players under the age of 25. On his list was 23 year old LeSean McCoy.

McCoy's first two seasons in Philadelphia were very solid. He took his game to an entirely new level in his third year. He ran for 1,309 yards and led the league in both rushing TDs (17) and rushes over 20 yards (14). He also hauled in 48 balls for 315 yards and three TDs. He is the NFL's most elusive open-field runner. He has rare stop-and-start quickness and he doesn't get enough credit for his ability to power through tackles. He also has worked to become one of the better pass-protecting running backs in the league.

DeSean Jackson just missed the cut as he is exactly 25 years old. Other players on his list include NaVorro Bowman, AJ Green, Cam Newton, Matt Stafford, Jason Pierre-Paul, Rob Gronkowski, Von Miller, Aldon Smith & Maurkice Pouncey.
