3. D'Andre Swift 

The Eagles said goodbye to their starting back of the last four years and reigning Pro Bowler Miles Sanders, who is now in Carolina. 

General manager Howie Roseman found his replacement in the draft -- not by a selection but by trade in former Lions running back D'Andre Swift. When evaluating the trade, it was a win for the Eagles to get a capable starter with one year left on his rookie deal. 

Can the Eagles get a full season out of the former Georgia Bulldog? Swift has never played a full season and has suffered multiple injuries. 

However, when healthy, the production has shown up at different times. In his first three seasons. Swift has rushed for 1,680 yards, 18 touchdowns, while logging156 receptions for1,198 yards receiving and seven receiving scores.

If healthy, the fourth-year veteran will now have the opportunity to run behind one of the best offensive lines in the league and play next to one of the best rushing quarterbacks in the game.
