Summary

In three seasons, Wendell Smallwood has flashed sporadically but never broken out of the Eagles running back committee. There's no reason to think his role improves this year, as the Eagles acquired Jordan Howard via trade and used a high draft pick on Miles Sanders. When healthy, Smallwood can contribute as a runner and receiver, and has value to the team as a No. 3 or No. 4 option. (May 23)

Eagles | Miles Sanders expects shared workload (Tue Jul 9, 10:28 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders expects plenty of competition at his position in training camp and for the ball to 'spread out a lot' between Jordan Howard, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and himself, according to comments he made during an interview Tuesday, July 9, on the NFL Network.'It's definitely going to be competitive. That's what I like about rooms like this. It was like this at Penn State. It was a very talented running back room. But I'm just used to that stuff - competing and making each other better. Nobody's really going to be the star running back, I think. I think the ball's going to be spread out a lot, and that's what I kind of like, too,' Sanders said.

Our View: The rookie is on the right track here. Sanders should be the satellite back behind starter (and classic power back) Jordan Howard. The rest of the players like Clement and Smallwood in the backfield could get into the reserve mix as well. Sanders has missed time this offseason recovering from a hamstring injury. We'll see if he can impress in training camp.
