Detailed breakdown of the Eagles' final 53-man roster - NBC Sports Philadelphia

Once the smoke settles on the 53-man roster, it’s always fun to catch your breath and take a step back and see just how the Eagles got to where they are.

I broke down the 53-man roster by position, by age, by draft class and every other way I could think of.

Here’s what the Eagles have 12 days before the season opener in Detroit.

New Look List

Only eight of the 53 guys on the list were here before 2018. The eight with Super Bowl rings from Super Bowl LII are Brandon Graham, Jason Kelce, Fletcher Cox, Lane Johnson, Isaac Seumalo, Rick Lovato, Derek Barnett and Jake Elliott .

There are 16 players who weren’t on the roster last year and 34 who weren’t here in 2020. So only 19 who were on the roster as recently as 2019.

Building through the outline

All five 2022 draft picks made the team and eight of nine from last year — all but JaCoby Stevens. The final roster also includes seven of 10 picks from 2020, so 20 of 24 picks from the last three drafts are still here.

In all, there are 33 Eagles draft picks on the roster or 62 percent of the entire roster. There are also two players who were dismissed from practice squads (Jake Elliott, Boston Scott), one player acquired on waivers (Marcus Epps), six free agents (Rick Lovato, James Bradberry, Javon Hargrave, Zach Pascal, Haason Reddick, Kyzir White). ), five acquired via trade (Darius Slay, Gardner Minshew, Josiah Scott, AJ Brown, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson) and six undrafted free agents (TJ Edwards, Sua Opeta, Jack Stoll, Reed Blankenship, Josh Jobe, Josh Sills).

By Gross Round

Of the 33 players on the roster that the Eagles drafted, eight are 1sSt-round selections, five were taken in the 2ndn.d round, four in the 3rd round, five in the 4ththone of the 5theight in the sixth round and two in the 7thth.

Including all players, there are nine 1’sSt-round selections, eight 2n.d-round selections, five 3rd-round, eight 4th-round, two 5’sth-round, 10 6th-round, two 7’sth-round and nine undrafted

Undrafted rookies

Of those nine undrafted players, three are undrafted rookies – Josh Sills, Reed Blankenship and Josh Jobe.

That’s the most undrafted rookies the Eagles have kept on the starting 53-man roster since 2016, when they kept Paul Turner, Dillon Gordon, Destiny Vaeao and CJ Smith. They also kept three in 2013 (Matt Tobin, Damion Square, Jake Knott).

By Position

The 53-man roster includes two quarterbacks, three offensive linemen, five wide receivers, three tight ends, 10 offensive linemen, five defensive tackles, four defensive ends, three SAM linebackers, five off-ball linebackers, five safeties, five corners and three . specialists


A surprising number of the Eagles’ cuts were older players. They released four players in their 30s and four more who are 27 or older.

The current 53 includes just five players in their 30s and 23 who are 24 or younger. About 38 of the 53 – 72 percent – are 26 or younger.
