The Eagles will hold their first rookie minicamp for 2023 NFL draft picks and selected undrafted free agents in the coming days, giving the organization an up-close look at Carter, Nolan Smith, Sydney Brown, Kelee Ringo, Tyler Steen, Tanner McKee, and Moro Ojomo.
Philadelphia hopes to have all seven players under contract before the start of training camp at the NovaCare Complex this July. Still, the contract details are common knowledge thanks to the NFL’s slot for every draft pick.
According to Tom Peliserro, the Eagles will allocate $59,165,346 for this draft class over the length of the total contracts.
In the projected contract details via Spotrac, Philadelphia will be responsible for close to $10 million in allocated cap space for 2023.
