41 players who are locks for the Eagles 53-man roster

·4 min read

The Eagles have a lot of individual talent and one of the top overall rosters in the NFL, making this one of the easier evaluation periods with the roster deadline a little more than 24 hours away.

Outside of the safety position, there aren’t many holes, with most of the intense roster battles involving backup spots on both sides of the ball.

Philadelphia’s 22 projected starters are set at every position except safety (Epps), and of the 53 roster spots, we’ve predicted 41 guys are locks to make the roster.

Philadelphia utilizes a physical rushing attack that still features two tight ends in various situations. Stoll makes the roster without question.
