3. FROM NOT DRAFTED TO AN NFL ROSTER ... AND MORE
The Eagles have 11 players on the 53-man roster who were not drafted, ranging from those who have made the Pro Bowl – offensive tackle Jason Peters and long snapper Jon Dorenbos – to those who have been solid players on special teams – Colt Anderson – to those who are emerging as starters – defensive lineman Cedric Thornton – and specialists – Damaris Johnson - to those still trying to make their mark.
Of that latter group, which consists of wide receiver Jeff Maehl, running back Chris Polk, linebacker Jake Knott, defensive lineman Damion Square, offensive lineman Matt Tobin and running back Matthew Tucker, there is a goal to find stability in the NFL.
"That's what it's all about," said Polk. "You see a lot of guys come and go in this business. You have to be productive every day and come to work knowing that. It's extremely competitive and I like that. It brings out the best in me."
