For the first time on Friday, Jordan Davis and his fellow Eagles rookies took the field at the NovaCare Complex.

Unfortunately, rain moved the practice inside the bubble, but all five draft picks were on the field in their new jersey numbers. In addition, the Eagles also announced the signing of 12 undrafted rookies and had several more tryout players on the field with them.
