Eagles 16-man practice squad prediction ahead of final roster cuts

·2 min read

The Eagles are counting down to the Tuesday afternoon deadline in which the organization will have to trim their roster down to 53 players, with a 16-man practice squad to be formed hours afterward.

With changes to the practice squad in recent years, Howie Roseman can have a farm system of versatile players to interchange weekly based on injury, opponent, or roster manipulation.

Of the 16 players allowed on Philadelphia’s practice squad, ten have to be rookies or second-year players, while the remaining six players have no limitations (veterans).

With the Eagles set for afternoon practice, here’s our final prediction for the team’s 16-man practice squad.

Allen has speed, and that can’t be taught. He’ll join the practice squad and impact a game for Philadelphia at some point late in the season.

Sinnett continues to develop in Philadelphia unless a better prospect gets waived or goes unclaimed.

The third-year wideout knows the system and has made plays in regular season games.

More speed and special teams potential from Covey as he develops every week.

Philadelphia develops offensive linemen, and Sills has nice size.

Togiai and Richard Rodgers are equal at this point, and the former Oregon State pass catcher is younger.

The rookie running back offers size and an opportunity to learn the NFL game.

Blankenship should make the 53-man roster, and if he somehow made it through waivers, the practice squad would prepare the former Middle Tennessee star to make his first start midway through the regular season.
