The No. 1 player on Derrick Gunn and Barrett Brooks' list of the 10 most important Eagles for the 2019 season should come as no surprise.

It's franchise quarterback Carson Wentz, signed to a four-year extension this offseason and the heart of the Eagles' present and future. 

“This team’s fate is all designed to go through No. 11," Brooks says. "He’s the No. 1 player on this team."

Here's Gunn and Brooks' full list:

1. Carson Wentz
2. Fletcher Cox
3. Lane Johnson
4. Malcolm Jenkins
5. Zach Ertz
6. Jason Kelce 
7. Alshon Jeffery 
8. Brandon Graham
9. Jason Peters
10. DeSean Jackson
