player. 54. . . . Patrick Johnson, Jacoby Stevens, LB.

Patrick Johnson, Jacoby Stevens, and Jack Anderson aren’t safe as the Eagles approach camp.

Here’s the good news for the Philadelphia Eagles and all of their loyal fans. Those holes along the linebacker corps that we have seemingly discussed for decades have been filled. T.J. Edwards is a baller. Davion Taylor has tons of talent. Haason Reddick and Kyzir White are going to give opposing offenses and their coordinators headaches ahead of game days all season.

Then, there are the new guys. Philly drafted Nakobe Dean and a young man that may begin his career as a special teams ace, Kyron Johnson. Again, that’s great news if you’re a Birds fan, but if you’re JaCoby Stevens and Patrick Johnson, it has to feel like your seat has gotten a little warmer, especially when Shaun Bradley, Christian Elliss, and Ali Fayad are also competing for roster spots.

player. 54. . . . Jack Anderson, center/guard.

All roads may be pointing to the practice squad for Jack Anderson, especially seeing as how the Philadelphia Eagles used their second-round choice in 2022’s NFL Draft on Jason Kelce’s successor, Cam Jurgens. If we were to make guesses on who will make the team and who won’t, we think we have this figured out.

If the Eagles keep ten linemen on the 53-man roster, a very real possibility, Jordan Mailata, Landon Dickerson, Jason Kelce, Isaac Seumalo, and Lane Johnson are the starters. That makes Andre Dillard, Sua Opeta, Jurgens, Jack Driscoll, and Le’Raven Clark the reserves.

Anderson has to be a little nervous. Josh Sills, Brett Toth,  William Dunkle, Jarrid Williams, and Kayode Awosika have a lot to think about. All are officially on the bubble with tough hills to climb to make this roster
