Who’s going to make this Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster?
2020’s Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster will look a little different than it did a season ago, to say the least. Philly said goodbye to some veterans and hello to some younger additions. The goal was to get younger and faster this offseason and that seems to be what has happened. How far will that take them? With a Super Bowl-winning coach in Doug Pederson and one of the NFL’s best signal-callers in Carson Wentz, the hope is that this team can have a deep playoff run and compete for another Lombardi trophy.
They’ll need to stay healthy. Practice squad players may need to step up if there are injuries like Cre’Von LeBlanc, Josh Adams, Greg Ward, and Boston Scott have done in years past. Depth is important. There are reliable starters, make no mistake, there are still some gaping holes. Guys will either need to step up or trades may need to be made at the deadline to compensate.
In recent years, there have been misevaluations of talent with some of their draft picks as well as with some of the backups. We’ll find out soon enough if the current crop of rookies validates the faith the team has put in them. Don’t expect any major moves as the lack of cap space over the course of the next couple of seasons has been discussed seemingly with no end.
With the preseason scratched, players have to find different ways to ‘flash’. It will be interesting to see who makes the roster. Will the familiar faces gain an edge? Let’s take a guess, shall we? Here’s a look at what Philly’s final 53-man roster might look like in September.
