OC Pat Shurmur: Nick Foles does a good job blending the kind of receivers we have and what they like with our route concepts. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) July 31, 2014

Shurmur: I watch Celek on a daily basis b/c he's a guy who really bought into the training ... Reminds me every day that it's working. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) July 31, 2014

Shurmur: Barbre is a physical guy, makes his presence felt in run game. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) July 31, 2014

Shurmur: Tobin, Gardner, Kelly are all guys who can fill in with depth if something happens in first four weeks. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) July 31, 2014

Shurmur: Arrelious Benn comes to mind as doing a good job beyond 1st tier of receivers ... Whole group has improved ... B. Smith solid w/ 1s — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) July 31, 2014

Shurmur on Jordan Matthews finishing plays: If we didn't have fences he'd run into the street. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) July 31, 2014

Shurmur: The nice thing about Sproles is he does absolutely everything right, finishes every play. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) July 31, 2014

Shurmur: The two guys who looked the most different when they got here were LeSean McCoy and Matt Barkley. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) July 31, 2014
