Interstate 53: Philadelphia Eagles Roster Prediction by Frederick Blue
It’s that time of the year again! After a rocky preseason which most recently had Eagles fans witnessing a 5-0, baseball-like score to the lowly Browns, some fans are panicking. Well, Eagles fans should relax a little when they sit back and meditate on the fact that the offense is pretty vanilla, there is little-to-no game-planning going on, and the Eagles have been missing many starters at the skilled positions on offense. As the exhibition season winds down, let’s take a crack at looking at how the 53-man roster may shape up after final cut-downs in August.
Here are my projections:
QB: Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Nate Sudfield RB: Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles, Wendall Smallwood, Corey Clement and Josh Adams (UDFA). Would appear Donnell Pumphrey’s days are numbered.
WR: Alshon Jeffrey, Nelson Anghlor, Mike Wallace, Mack Hollins, Shelton Gibson and Deandre Carter (Practice squad)
TE: Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Richard Rodgers
OL: Jason Peters, Lane Johnson, Brandon Brooks, Jason Kelce, Stefan Wisniewski, Isaac Seumalo, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Jordan Mailata and Matt Pryor
Defense DL: Fletcher Cox, Timmy Jernigan(PUP), Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett, Josh Sweat, Steven Means, Michael Bennett, Haloti Ngata, Chris Long, Bruce Hector and Destiny Vaeao
LB: Kamu Grugier-Hill, Jordan Hicks, Nigel Bradham, Nate Gerry, Joe Walker
CB: Jalen Mills, Sidney Jones, Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox and Ronald Darby
Safety: Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod, Chris Marigos (PUP), Corey Graham and Tre Sullivan
Special Teams LS: Rick Lovato K: Jake Elliott P: Cameron Johnson
