Cornerbacks (6)

Darius Slay, James Bradberry, Avonte Maddox, Kelee Ringo, Zech McPhearson, Josh Jobe

The Eagles often carry five safeties and six cornerbacks on the 53-man roster. We'll hold true to that theory here. Josh Jobe played a significant role on special teams last season while playing 220 ST snaps, roughly 76% of Philly's total. It's for that reason we have given him the sixth slot ahead of Greedy Williams.

Safeties (4)

Terrell Edmunds, Reed Blankenship, Sydney Brown, Justin Evans

The Eagles have been known to add defensive backs late in the roster-building process. Our fingers are crossed in hopes that they'll do so again.

For now, we'll finally end the K'Von Wallace experiment and leave a spot open, but Reed Blankenship, Terrell Edmunds, Sydney Brown, and Justin Evans are safe in terms of potential roster cuts.

Specialists (3)

Jake Elliott (kicker), Rick Lovato (long snapper), and punter to be named later,

It didn't take much to figure this one out. Jake Elliott and Rick Lovato are two of the best in the business at their respective positions. Its hard to roll with Arryn Siposs. Plus Howard Eskin believes the Birds will have added someone by Week 1. We hope he's right as Ty Zentner hasn't been much more impressive with limited opportunities.

Practice squad (16)

16 guys are on the practice squad. Here's a guess at what it might look like, for now. The names are subject to change throughout the preseason.

  1. Ian Book, QB
  2. Trey Sermon, RB
  3. Kennedy Brooks, RB
  4. Eli Ricks, CB
  5. Mario Goodrich, CB
  6. Tarron Jackson, DE
  7. Tyrie Cleveland, WR
  8. Joseph Ngata, WR
  9. Cameron Tom, C
  10. Marlon Tuipulotu, DT
  11. Moro Ojomo, DT
  12. Roderick Johnson, T
  13. Dennis Kelly, T
  14. Grant Calcaterra, TE
  15. Ben VanSumeran, LB
  16. Davion Taylor, LB
