The Eagles just started their first fully padded training camp practice on Tuesday morning, and there are plenty of things to watch out for.

Head coach Nick Sirianni made it clear on Monday that there would be no tackling or players going down to the ground, but things could still get very interesting.

Whether it be 11 on 11, 7 on 7, or just one-on-one matchups, there are several players and matchups to watch as training camp heats up.

The former Georgia All-American defensive tackle is a monster in the middle, and Davis’s matchups with Jason Kelce, Cam Jurgens, and others will be something to watch.

Eagles cornerback Darius Slay has already referenced Brown’s physicality, and it’ll be interesting to see how his game blossoms even more with the pads on.

The Eagles’ defense has had moments of dominance this summer, and it’ll be interesting to see how things fare when the pads are on, and the offensive line can do what they do best.

A group that was once a liability, the Eagles linebackers can fly with Kyzir White and Nakobe Dean now on the roster. Tuesday provides the first opportunity for the group to fly around and make plays.

Sirianni highlighted the lack of tackling during full padded practices, but the goal will still be for the Eagles to avoid injuries with two joint practice sessions looming.
