The Philadelphia Eagles are in the middle of their mini camps before breaking for the next month preparing for a grinding training camp.

One player who has shined in his short time in an Eagles uniform is rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews.

Matthews, a standout from Vanderbilt, has opened up many eyes this month and his expectations continue to rise.

Albeit in a t-shirt and shorts.

Jeff McLane, Philadelphia Inquirer, called in to talk about the Eagles at OTAs and decided to temper expectations for the young wide receiver.

"Usually the skill position guys stand out at these type of camps, these are really passing type camps. That's why you see so much praise for Jordan Matthews," said McLane.

McLane also talks about the emergence of Mychal Kendricks and perhaps he is being groomed for a play maker position on their defense. He has certainly shown moments of that leader last season, but we are still waiting for him to do that for a full game, half a season.

The kicking competition is not much of a competition, according to McLane.

Carey "Murderleg" Spear was brought in undrafted to compete with Alex Henery, but things are just not looking good for Spear who will most likely be a training camp causality.
