The Philadelphia Eagles completed their first OTA practice of the 2018 offseason on Tuesday. Here’s a look at what their current depth chart looks like based on which players took first team reps. Keep in mind it’s only May and there’s still plenty of team for this tentative depth chart to change by the time final cuts are made before Week 1.
First team: Nick Foles*
Second team: Nate Sudfeld
Third team: Joe Callahan
*Carson Wentz obviously isn’t practicing yet so Foles is filling in with the first team. Wentz took reps as the fourth quarterback in individual drills.
First team: Jay Ajayi
Backups: Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Donnel Pumphrey, Matt Jones, Josh Adams
Sproles isn’t at OTAs but he’d likely see some time as the first/second running back if he was here. Pumphrey is still only fourth on the depth chart. Adams didn’t practice as he’s still recovering from a foot injury.
First team: Mack Hollins*, Mike Wallace, Nelson Agholor (slot)
Backups: Shelton Gibson, Greg Ward, Bryce Treggs, Marquess Wilson, Markus Wheaton, Rashard Davis, Anthony Mahoungou, Tim Wilson
*Alshon Jeffery isn’t practicing yet so Hollins is filling in for him.
First team: Zach Ertz
Backups: Richard Rodgers, Dallas Goedert, Billy Brown, Adam Zaruba, Josh Perkins
The veteran Rodgers is currently ahead of the rookie Goedert. Not a surprise this early in the offseason.
First team: Jason Peters, Stefen Wisniewski, Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks, Lane Johnson
Second team: Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Chance Warmack, Jon Toth, Matt Pryor, Taylor Hart
Third team: Jordan Mailata, Aaron Evans, Ian Park, Darrell Greene, Toby Weathersby
It’s good to see JP was healthy enough to practice. Isaac Seumalo notably isn’t listed here since he wasn’t participating in team drills. He WAS taking snaps at center in 7-on-7 drills, which is interesting. Pryor also got some work at tackle in addition to guard.
First team: Derek Barnett*, Chris Long*, Fletcher Cox, Destiny Vaeao*
Backups: Elijah Qualls, Winston Craig, Bruce Hector
*Brandon Graham is out due to injury and Micahel Bennett currently isn’t attending OTAs. Tim Jernigan’s injury and Haloti Ngata not participating in team drills opened up first team reps for Vaeao.
First team: Jordan Hicks, Nigel Bradham, Corey Nelson*
Backups: Mychal Kendricks, Kamu Grugier-Hill, Nate Gerry, Paul Worrilow, Joe Walker, LaRoy Reynolds, Asantay Brown
*Nelson got first team WILL linebacker reps. Kendricks was not seen at practice and Pederson did not mention him as one of the players skipping OTAs. Interesting.
Hicks did not do team drills. Worrilow was carted out of practice with a knee injury. Didn’t look good. Gerry and Grugier-Hill rotated in with the first team defense at times even prior to Worrilow getting hurt.
Walker and Reynolds also sat out of practice.
First team: Jalen Mills, Ronald Darby, Sidney Jones (slot)
Backups: Rasul Douglas, De’Vante Bausby, Avonte Maddox, D.J. Killings, Randall Goforth, Chandon Sullivan
Mills and Darby lined up as the outside corners in base with Jones playing the slot in nickel. Last year at this time, Mills and Patrick Robinson were the outside corners with Mills shifting to the slot and Douglas coming in to play on the outside. The point here is that there’s plenty of time for things to change.
First team: Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod
Backups: Tre Sullivan, Jeremy Reaves, Stephen Roberts, Ryan Neal
Chris Maragos isn’t practicing yet so that opened up an opportunity for Sullivan and Reaves to line up as the backup safeties. During his pre-practice press conference, Pederson did not close the door on re-signing Corey Graham.
First team: Jake Elliott
First team: Cameron Johnston
First team: Rick Lovato
