We tend to think the work of the Philadelphia Eagles’ front office is finished for the offseason once Round 7 of the NFL draft wraps up. Then the club fills out its 90-man roster with the best remaining players who didn’t hear their names called.
This year, the Birds signed 15 undrafted free agents to contracts immediately after the draft. Admittedly, most will never sniff the final roster—one has already been released. That being said, there are always a few who make the cut.
2014 will be no different. Actually, given the current state of the Eagles, we could be looking at as many as four or five UDFAs who have a shot at being left standing after the smoke clears on final cutdown day.
Naturally, some have better chances than others. Let’s take one last look at this year’s class of UDFAs and attempt to separate the few who might make it from the many who likely won’t.
