Sophomore RB Miles Sanders is one of the most exciting pieces in the Philadelphia Eagles offense heading into the 2020 season.
In 2019, Sanders' 1,327 yards from scrimmage broke DeSean Jackson's franchise rookie record of 1,008. Now, Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports predicts that Sanders will break an even bigger record as a sophomore. He likes Sanders to break LeSean McCoy's franchise sophomore record of 1,672 yards from scrimmage.
As a 22-year-old second-year player back in 2010, Shady racked up 1,080 rushing yards to go with 592 receiving yards. Those 1,672 yards from scrimmage were not only a franchise sophomore record but also the eighth-highest single-season total in franchise history.
Considering Sanders came within 345 yards of that mark while starting his 2019 rookie season behind Jordan Howard on the depth chart, he could absolutely blow that record away in 2020.
In fact, if we look at Sanders' numbers from his six full games as a clear starter last year (Week 11 through Week 16), he was on a 16-game pace for 1,694 yards from scrimmage (1,147 rushing, 547 receiving).
Even if Sanders hasn't made any strides as a player, his increased role in the offense should keep him on his impressive trajectory as one of the most productive running backs Philadelphia has ever seen.
