Philadelphia Eagles: Early Projections on Final 53-Man Roster

The 2012 Philadelphia Eagles are starting to really take shape following the draft. The offensive line has depth, the defensive line looks elite and Mychal Kendricks looks like the SAM linebacker of the future.

The Eagles have plenty of cap space, around $19 million to be exact. The Eagles could go after another big free agent or two, but don't expect Plaxico Burress getting signed anytime soon. The majority of that cap figure will go to re-signing LeSean McCoy this year and Jeremy Maclin next year.

The Eagles will head into the season much like they did in 2011, with a loaded roster. The only difference this season is that the Eagles will have less new faces and position coaches to get used to.

The defense has the personnel to play the type of defense they wanted to last season. Asante Samuel is a great corner, but he is best served to play off-man coverage while Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are at their best playing press coverage. With Samuel gone, the Eagles can play press coverage.

A few positions will be up for grabs in training camp, but the majority of all roster spots are all but assured at this point. Here is a very early look at what the 53 man roster could look like.
