We’re going to go out on a limb right now and make our prediction on who makes the Philadelphia Eagles final 53-man roster (in the middle of May).
We know. We know. It’s not even the middle of May yet. There hasn’t been a rookie camp, a training camp or a preseason game, and the title got you. Didn’t it? Yes, ladies and gentlemen, post draft, there are a ton of guys on the Philadelphia Eagles active roster and some newer names we still have to get familiar with.
We’ve been agonizing over and over about how they’re going to get that list down to 53 men, so we debated. We used up all of our life lines, and we made a list of our own. There were all kinds of questions that needed to be answered and still need answering.
What about the guys who have been here for a while who always seem to be on the bubble? Will Philly carry six wide receivers and five running backs? Then, you have to take into consideration that there may be a couple of surprises that work their way onto the squad.
Come on. Don’t act like you haven’t asked the exact same questions in your own minds. Everyone’s got their guesses. Here are ours. The debate table is open. Four months from now, we’ll see if our guesses are right.
