A lot is made of the "Oregon connection" on the Eagles roster. While the Ducks are heavily-represented on the Eagles roster, there are several other programs that have a prominent presence on the team. Along with Chip Kelly's former stomping grounds, the Eagles have added former Bearcats, Gators, Tigers and others in bunches.
Below is a list of colleges with more than one alum on the Eagles roster:
|School||Number of Players||Players|
|Oregon||8||Brandon Bair, Taylor Hart, Josh Huff, Josh Kaddu, Wade Keliikipi, Jeff Maehl, Casey Matthews, Will Murphy|
|Cincinnati||5||Blake Annen, Connor Barwin, Brent Celek, Trent Cole, Jason Kelce|
|Alabama||3||Evan Mathis, DeMeco Ryans, Damion Square|
|Florida||3||Trey Burton, Riley Cooper, Jaylen Watkins|
|Iowa||3||Bradley Fletcher, Matt Tobin, Julian Vandervelde|
|LSU||3||Kadron Boone, Donnie Jones, Bennie Logan|
|Missouri||3||Henry Josey, Jeremy Maclin, Brad Smith|
|USC||3||Matt Barkley, Kevin Graf, Mark Sanchez|
|Michigan||2||Brandon Graham, David Molk|
|Stanford||2||Zach Ertz, Ed Reynolds|
|Texas||2||Emmanuel Acho, Donald Hawkins|
|Vanderbilt||2||Jordan Matthews, Carey Spear|
|Virginia Tech||2||Roc Carmichael, Davon Morgan|
|Wisconsin||2||Beau Allen, Chris Maragos|
Obviously, Oregon is the top school in this category. There are eight former Ducks on the 90-man roster. However, only 2-3 are expected to make the final squad. Behind Oregon is Cincinnati, which has five alums on the roster. The most impressive part of that collective is that four of those former Bearcats were starters last season for the Eagles and project to continue those roles this year.
While Oregon and Cincinnati can claim the Top 2 spots on the roster, six teams each have a respectable three former players in Philadelphia. Alabama, Florida (Howie Roseman's alma mater), Iowa, LSU, USC and Missouri all have trios on the team. Six other universities have at least two alums on the Eagles roster.
