Philadelphia Eagles training camp preview: The offensive line
1. Jason Peters, starting left tackle
2018’s season is a revenge tour and may be the final campaign for ‘The Bodyguard’. His teammates would love to win another Super Bowl with him on the field.
2. Stefen Wisniewski, starting guard
This former Pro Football Weekly and Sporting News All-Rookie Team member earned himself both a contract extension and a starting job in 2017. Expect him to continue to shine in 2018.
3. Jason Kelce, starting center
Kelce earned First-team All-Pro honors in 2017 despite being seen as too small by several football pundits. He’s, now, one of Philly’s favorite sons and will, again, hold down the middle of the Eagles’ line in 2018.
4. Brandon Brooks, starting guard
No one on the current roster is beating Brandon Graham out for the starting right guard spot. Nobody.
5. Lane Johnson, starting right tackle
Lane Johnson is the best right tackle in football and one of about five things that former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly got right during his tenure.
6. Halapoulivaati Vaitai, tackle
There were some concerns about ‘Big V’ early, but he’s settled in nicely and appears ready to take over for Jason Peters when the legend finally calls it a career.
7. Jon Toth, center
Toth may experience some difficulty in making this team. Kelce is firmly entrenched as the starter, and Philly has quite a few guys that can play multiple positions along the offensive front, which, at most, probably makes Toth a third-string center.
8. Chance Warmack, guard
Warmack was, at times, scratched from the Eagles roster despite being healthy, and it appears he never got out of the doghouse in 2017. Making the team this year may be an uphill climb.
9. Darrell Greene, guard
At best, Greene may be slotted in as Brooks’ backup. It’s hard to imagine a scenario where he competes for a starting role.
