Philadelphia Eagles undrafted free agents: Full list, updates, analysis
In 2016, the Philadelphia Eagles spent more money than any other NFL team on undrafted free agents, and several of those players wound up making an impact.
Defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao, wide receiver Paul Turner and cornerback C.J. Smith all saw the field during their rookie year.
So, what can we expect in 2017? The Eagles addressed plenty of their needs with their eight-member draft class, but starting Saturday afternoon, they’ll be scouring the market to add players who didn’t hear their names called as one of the 253 picks this week.
We’ll be providing live updates — and a bit of analysis — as credible reports trickle out about the Birds’ signings. Follow along with our list:
Greg Ward, QB/WR, Houston (source)
- The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Ward played quarterback for the Cougars, but he’ll likely wind up as a wide receiver in the NFL. He gained 1,114 rushing yards during his junior year in 2015.
Cam Johnston, P, Ohio State (source)
Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin (source)
- The Eagles missed out on getting a three-down back during the draft, though they did take change-of-pace option Donnel Pumphrey in the fourth round. Clement finished with 1,375 rushing yards last season.
Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia (source)
- Orlosky earned all-Big 12 honors three times at West Virginia. The Eagles also drafted two Mountaineers.
Marcus Oliver, ILB, Indiana (source)
- Oliver was an honorable mention all-Big Ten player as a junior in 2016, when he made 96 tackles for the Hoosiers.
