Predicting Two-Deep Philadelphia Eagles Depth Chart, Pre-Training Camp

Andy Reid and his coaching staff now have a pretty good idea of what their depth chart looks like. It's important to have a good idea of who your starters are at this point and who the key reserves are as well.

Training camp isn't as much about position battles as it is about chemistry and shaking the rust off. That doesn't mean your depth chart won't change, but you need to get your starters on the field together at this point.

Right now, all the Eagles' major position battles are players battling for the top reserve spot, not for a starting job. Maybe the weak-side linebacker battle is the only real battle for a starting position that has any merit.

This is a good thing. There will be a lot of competition for some of the final roster spots and some key reserve roles, but the starters are pretty much set. That means a lot more chemistry will be built up this summer.

Last summer, the Eagles had no OTAs, no minicamp and a shortened training camp. They also had several positions that looked very unclear heading into preseason. That won't be the case this season. It will be about getting the first-team unit to be the best first-team unit they can be.

Here is a very early prediction—heading into the upcoming full team minicamp and before training camp—of what the depth chart will look like with starters and second-stringers.
