For each position, here is a list of players to watch who could be sleepers to make the team.
QB - Keep an eye on Michael Vick this camp. He is coming into camp in terrific shape, and according to some eagles personnel, he looks like the old Michael Vick. If so, he may take on a more critical role for this season.
RB - Look out for Canadian League Rookie of the Year Martell Mallett. Mallett led the Canadian league in rushing. He is a longshot to make it, but I wouldn’t count him out yet.
WR - At 5'8" and 187 pounds, Chad Hall doesn’t have the NFL body most teams are looking for. But if you want speed and a good return man, look no further. Chad Hall set every receiving record and returning record with the Air Force before going off for two years to serve our country. Not only can he possibly make this team, but he deserves everyone’s respect for giving up part of his career in football to serve this country.
TE - Cornelius Ingram, an athletic tight end, is due to make his return this season, and could make a huge impact. It will be interesting to see what kind of shape he’s in and if he is still that same player we saw in his junior season at Florida. However, two years away from football is a lot, so he may be rusty throughout training camp.
OL - The center competition will be heated, but I’m looking forward to watching Stacey Andrews this camp to see if he can really handle taking on the starting right guard role.
DL - Look for how Brandon Graham (assuming he signs his contract) progresses in an NFL system. Rookie defensive ends are notorious for a lack of impact in their rookie season, but Graham has a relentless motor and will do whatever he can to get to the QB.
LB - Moise Fokou will probably be the starting strong-side linebacker this year, so look for him in training camp to see what impact he can make against the run and covering the tight end.
Secondary - Second-round pick Nate Allen seems to be mature enough to take on the starting free safety role. Let’s see if he’s able to handle the pressure of starting for day one and if he can pick up the system quickly.
