One of the standouts of the Eagles' impressive draft class has been TE Clay Harbor, who was somewhat of an unknown coming into the NFL from Missouri State. But Harbor has been opening eyes since the start of training camp and apparently has moved past Cornelius Ingram on the TE depth chart behind starter Brent Celek. But that doesn't mean that the Eagles are ready to vault Harbor into a significant role when the season starts. "Well, I just don't feel comfortable going there (with Harbor as the No. 2 tight end) quite yet. He has a long way to go," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. "He's had a terrific camp. He's a tough, physical guy who will hit you. So he's got a chance to progress, and he's progressed very quickly. But there's a long way to go to be in a regular-season game and be effective. … But he's got a great opportunity right in front of him." Still, observers believe that Harbor's special-teams value could vault him to that No. 2 role.
