Predicting Philadelphia Eagles' 1st Wave of Roster Cuts
Matt Rourke/Associated Press

This is the most intense time of training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles. With 90 players fighting for 53 spots, there are dozens of football players who will see their dreams squashed within the next few weeks. 

But realistically, there aren't 90 players fighting for 53 spots. There are about 35 to 40 players whose spots are all but guaranteed, meaning there are approximately 55 players fighting for 15 spots. Those aren't good odds, especially for undrafted rookie free agents competing against third- or fourth-year veterans. 

The following slides will highlight the players most likely to be cut during the first wave of roster cuts, which happens in about three weeks. After these 15 players (likely) are cut, the roster will be down to just 75 players before the team eventually picks its 53.
