Billy Davis indicated today that he’ll make his final evaluations on starters after Saturday night’s preseason game against the Jaguars.
Keeping that in mind, here’s a position-by-position look at which spots are up for grabs, along with comments from Davis.
I’ve been called many things since then — champion, Nostradamus, King 53 — but honestly, I’d really prefer it if you just call me Tim.
Kapadia is back for more. He took a shot at the 2013 roster last week. My turn this week.Teams must trim their rosters down to 53 by 6 p.m. on Aug. 31. On Aug. 30, we’ll release our final versions, matching our projections up vs. the Eagles’.
Kapadia has already written his concession speech.
Without further ado, let’s get to the award-winning projections.
In exactly two weeks, the rookies will report to NovaCare to kick off Eagles training camp. July 22 is the report date, then they’ll practice for each of the next two days before the vets show up on the 25th.
With the rooks up first, let’s take a look at where the 2013 draft picks stand heading into camp.
Bennie Logan has been flying under the radar a bit since becoming an Eagle. There’s been plenty of attention paid to classmates Lane Johnson, Zach Ertz, Earl Wolff and of course Matt Barkley, but seldom does the third-round selection get highlighted.
That’s about par for the course for the 23-year-old defensive lineman. Surrounded by the likes of Michael Brockers, Morris Claiborne, Tyrann Mathieu, Kevin Minter and Eric Reid over his college career, Logan rarely found himself in the spotlight while at LSU. But his play stood out to NFL scouts, and he went into April’s draft with a second/third round grade.
The Eagles walked away from their pre-draft sit-down with Logan extremely impressed, and had him tabbed as a second-round talent. He fell to the third, and they snagged him with the 67th overall pick.
A couple notes to pass along while we wait for the first day of rookie minicamp to wrap up.
