The Eagles are roaring towards the start of the 2022 training camp after an NFL draft class that landed several A grades from experts and analysts.

Philadelphia is starting Week 3 of the offseason workout program and the team just finished a two-day minicamp that saw 12 undrafted free agents, 5 draft picks, and 19 players who were selected to try out.

The Eagles will have two more OTA periods before breaking for the summer and with late July fast approaching, let’s take a look at the first 53-man roster projections following the NFL draft.

The former Nevada quarterback received a huge signing bonus and if he can stay healthy and display a big arm, Strong will overtake Reid Sinnett on the depth chart.

Philadelphia currently has 10 wide receivers on the roster and although the organization wants to part ways with Reagor, he’s still among the best options on the roster.

Philadelphia needs a spark in the return game and Allen could be the guy.

The rookie from SMU has a good shot at playing snaps on day one.

The former wide receiver plays a huge role in the running game and it’ll be Arcega-Whiteside and Jack Stoll as the third or fourth tight end ahead of the veteran Richard Rodgers.

The primary backup at left tackle to Jordan Mailata, Dillard is an insurance policy the playoff-bound Eagles have to hang onto.

A swing tackle, Clark is an insurance policy for Andre Dillard.

Driscoll is a viable option at right guard and he can swing to the tackle position as well.

A second-year player out of Louisiana Tech, Williams has some competition for snaps at defensive tackle.

DT Noah Elliss

The huge defensive tackle from Idaho signed a massive guaranteed deal and he’ll likely snag one of the final roster spots.

DE Tarron Jackson

The Eagles love pass rushers and Jackson becomes the 10th defensive line in a tight squeeze.

LB Haason Reddick

Reddick is listed as a linebacker, but he’ll rush from multiple positions as a primary pass rusher, meaning Philadelphia could carry more players at the position than usual.

Taylor could be a bubble player to watch after the additions of Reddick, Kyzir White, and Nakobe Dean.

An athletic linebacker, Philadelphia now has players at the position that rival Taylor’s athleticism.

The initial idea was to place Ali Fayad in the final roster spot, but Johnson loves to make an impact on special teams.
