Yes, it’s early. But with the draft over, the Eagles likely won’t be making any more significant roster additions between now and the start of training camp in July. What you see is what you get.

Chip Kelly has had a grand total of three spring non-contact practices and has said a depth chart would be folly at this point. Jobs will be won and lost during two-a-days at the NovaCare complex this summer.

But I don’t feel like waiting until then to paint a potential picture of the Eagles’ 2013 season-opening roster. So here’s an early-line look at what I think will be the starting lineup when they take the field against the Redskins in Week 1:


QB – Nick Foles

RB – LeSean McCoy

H-back – James Casey

LT – Jason Peters

LG – Todd Herremans

C – Jason Kelce

RG – Evan Mathis

RT – Lane Johnson

TE – Brent Celek

WR – Jeremy Maclin

WR – DeSean Jackson


DE – Cedric Thornton

NT – Isaac Sopoaga

DE – Fletcher Cox

OLB – Connor Barwin

ILB – DeMeco Ryans

ILB – Mychal Kendricks

OLB – Brandon Graham

FS – Nate Allen

SS – Patrick Chung

CB – Cary Williams

CB – Bradley Fletcher
