Post Draft Roster Projection and Depth Chart

Quick Remarks

1) I think we carry 3 QBs this year. Carr will backup Eli for one more year, and then we will evaluate Nassib and likely cut Carr.

2) Defensive Tackle will host some fierce competition for roster spots this training camp. Joseph and Jenkins will be the starters, but behind them, we have 2013 2nd round pick Jonathan Hankins, 2012 7th round pick Markus Kuhn who showed some sparks in 2012 in game action, former Eagles run stuffer Mike Patterson who I believe will take the 3 spots behind them. They will have to beat out Marvin Austin and Shaun Rogers to do so. Some tough cuts will be made there.

3) As compared to recent years, I think we are a little thin in terms of depth at both running back and receiver and was a little surprised to not see at least a mid-round pick invested in either position. I love the duo of DW and Andre Brown, as well as the trio of Nicks, Cruz and Randle, but behind them we have little proven depth. The talent is there with guys like Jernigan, Murphy at receiver, and Da'Rel Scott at back, but I can see some bodies being brought into training camp that could easily steal their roster spots. Wouldn't be shocked to see a new name or two make it on Final Roster Cutdown Day.

4) Given the tough competition there will be in camp, I didn't project either of the 7th round draft picks making the team. However, I am excited to see the RB out of UMass Michael Cox in camp. If he shows up in camp I would not be surprised to see him claim a roster spot.
