Some say that there’s no better way to project a player’s success than by evaluating their jersey number.

And by “some,” I mean Benjamin Solak and me. That’s why we invented the very important and super serious science of #JerseyNumberAnalytics.

Laugh it up if you want but the results speak for themselves. Just look at last year’s list of players to feel good about:

JJ Arcega-Whiteside

Miles Sanders

T.J. Edwards

Josh Sweat

Braxton Miller

L.J. Fort

Boom. Clearly no misses there. Same thing for the list of players that we deemed to be in major jeopardy:

Josh Adams

Mack Hollins

Hassan Ridgeway

Carlton Agudosi

Clayton Thorson

Charles Johnson

And so for the second year in a row, we offered our thoughts on the jersey number of every player on the Eagles’ roster. Listen to this episode and you’ll know which players are on the rise and which players are trending in the wrong direction. [CLICK HERE] OR STEAM BELOW:
