Philadelphia Eagles 2013 Team Roster: Report Card Grades for Every Position
Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles have now trimmed their roster to the mandated 53 players, cutting 10 in the 24 hours before the deadline.

The offense will be fairly similar to the one Andy Reid utilized for the past several seasons. Chip Kelly returns the core in quarterback Michael Vick, running back LeSean McCoy, and wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Other key components coming back include Brent Celek and four-fifths of the offensive line.

What will look drastically different is the defense.

Not only are the Eagles switching to a 3-4 defense (with variations of the 4-3 Under and 4-3 base), but Kelly signed six potential free-agent starters to his defense. He has since released veteran safety Kenny Phillips, but the defensive backfield may still feature four new starters if rookie Earl Wolff wins the job.

Most projections have the Eagles finishing anywhere from 6-10 to a possible wild-card berth. It will likely come down to the performance of Vick, rookie offensive tackle Lane Johnson, and the defense.

For now, here are grades for each positional unit on the offense, defense, and special teams.
