Ranking Eagles undrafted rookies with the best chance to make Philadelphia's 16-man practice squad

They have had great summers, but a handful of Eagles rookies seemingly have better shots at making the practice squad than the initial 53-man roster.

Brady Russell may not make the 53-man roster or the Eagles' practice squad, but he has nothing to hang his head about.

The tight end position feels like one of the easier roster positions to figure out. Philly figures to keep three on the 53-man roster. Two of those jobs belong to Dallas Goedert and Jack Stoll. Grant Calcaterra feels like the third man on the depth chart even though Tyree Jackson may have more upside if healthy.

What does that mean for Brady Russell?

Dan Arnold and Brady Russell are officially on the hot seat. We'll place Russell in the practice squad conversation for now. His TD reception versus the Cleveland Browns helped his case, but he may end up off the roster entirely.

7. Johnny King, wide receiver

Big-bodied wide receivers are always fun to talk about. There's no better feeling than knowing your quarterback has another huge target in the red zone or on third down.

Johnny King stands at six-foot-five and tips the scales at 209 pounds, but his chances at making the roster or practice squad are seemingly minimal.

The old saying is 'last-in, first-out'. It seems inconceivable that King would land on this roster on August 8th and beat out so many guys that have been with the team for a much longer stretch of time.

It would be a nice story, but again, this seems like one of the more unlikely of scenarios.
