A look at the Eagles' roster by the numbers!


How many Eagles are left from the Super Bowl team? How many players on the roster weren't drafted? How many new players are on the roster?

So many questions! And we have answers!

Here’s a look at the Eagles' roster By the Numbers!

There are only 24 players on the 53-man roster who played in the Super Bowl just 18 months ago. There are only 11 players left who played under Chip Kelly — including Vinny Curry and DeSean Jackson, who returned this year — and there are only six left who played under Andy Reid.

The 53-man roster includes:

• Eight 1st-round picks
• Twelve 2nd-round picks
• Five 3rd-round picks
• Seven 4th-round picks
• Five 5th-round picks
• Six 6th-round picks
• One 7th-round pick
• 11 undrafted players  

There are 17 players on the roster who weren’t with the Eagles last year. That’s nearly a third of the roster. Of those 17, four are rookie draft picks, seven were signed as free agents, four were acquired in trades and two are undrafted rookies.

 There are 25 players on the roster who were originally drafted by the Eagles, including 14 of their 18 draft picks over the last three years  but nobody from the 2014 draft. Here’s a breakdown of the last 10 drafts and how many players remain:

• 2010: 1 of 13 picks
• 2011: 1 of 11 picks
• 2012: 2 of 9 picks
• 2013: 2 of 8 picks
• 2014: 0 of 7 picks
• 2015: 1 of 6 picks
• 2016: 4 of 8 picks [including Jalen Mills, who is on PUP]
• 2017: 5 of 8 picks
• 2018: 5 of 5 picks
• 2019: 4 of 5 picks

The only players the Eagles have drafted over the last three years who are no longer here are 4th-round pick Donnel Pumphrey, 5th-round pick Shelton Gibson and 6th-round pick Elijah Qualls from 2017 and 2019 5th-round pick Clayton Thorson.

Thorson is the Eagles’ first fifth-round pick to be released after his rookie training camp since safety C.J. Gaddis in 2007. The last quarterback the Eagles drafted that never played for them was 1995 fourth-round pick Dave Barr.

Pumphrey is the Eagles’ first fourth-round pick to never play a snap in an Eagles uniform since Scott Peters, a center they drafted out of Arizona State in 2002. The last running back the Eagles took in the first five rounds that never played in a game for the Eagles was 1992 second-round pick Siran Stacy.

The roster as it stood Sunday morning included:

• 3 quarterbacks
• 4 running backs
• 5 wide receivers
• 2 tight ends
• 10 offensive linemen
• 6 defensive ends
• 4 defensive tackles
• 6 linebackers
• 5 cornerbacks
• 5 safeties
• 3 specialists

The roster includes three players who weren’t here when training camp began — Josh McCown, Rudy Ford and Johnathan Cyprien.

• Tallest Eagle: Jordan Mailata, 6-8
• Shortest Eagle: Darren Sproles, 5-6
• Oldest Eagle: Josh McCown, 40
• Youngest Eagle: Nate Herbig, 21
• Lightest Eagle: Jake Elliott, 167 pounds
• Heaviest Eagle: Jordan Mailata, 346 pounds

Four guys on the roster have played at least 100 games in an Eagles uniform: Jason Peters (127), Brandon Graham (127), Jason Kelce (110) and Fletcher Cox (109).
