2015 Eagles projected 53-man roster (March version)
The Eagles roster will undoubtedly undergo a number of changes between now and September due to free agency, trades, the draft, and injuries. A half dozen or more names could change. But if the team had to pare its current roster to 53 right now, based on players that the team currently controls, what would that roster look like? Here's my first look.
QB (3): Bradford, Sanchez, Barkley
RB (4): Murray, Mathews, Sproles, Polk
WR (5): Matthews, Huff, Cooper, Smith, Maehl, Murphy
TE (3): Celek, Ertz, Burton
C (2): Kelce, Molk
G (4): Mathis, Barbre, Tobin, Kelly
T (4): Peters, Johnson, Gardner
DL (7): Thorton, Logan, Cox, Curry, Allen, Hart, Bair
LB (9): Alonso, Barwin, Kendricks, Ryans, Graham, Smith, Braman, Acho, Jones
CB (5): Maxwell, Thurmond, Boykin, Carroll, Watkins
S: (4) Jenkins, Wolff, Maragos, Prosinski
The three areas that I expect the Eagles to target in the early rounds of the draft are WR, CB, and S.
