The Eagles added eight new draft picks to their roster through the 2016 NFL Draft and 16 more rookies via undrafted free agency. These rookies have arrived in Philadelphia and will officially hit the practice fields today, Friday, May 13 when Eagles rookie minicamp gets underway. There will also be media availability. Franchise quarterback of the future Carson Wentz will have a press conference starting at 12:30 PM ET. Stay tuned to BGN for more coverage.

A total of 55 players will participate in Eagles rookie minicamp, including 26 tryout players. Tryout players obviously do not count against the 90 man roster as they are not under contract. Four first-year players will also be in attendance. Three of these players spent the 2015 season on Philadelphia's practice squad. One includes 2015 sixth round pick Randall Evans.
