4. Offensive line better built for future

Due to all of the previous injuries surrounding Carson Wentz, Philadelphia entered the draft hoping to add some depth to the offensive line to make sure the unit would be in better shape for years to come.

As reliable as the offensive line has been in recent years, there are still some questions entering the 2020 season, whether it happens to be how the group will look without Jason Peters or if Andre Dillard can find a way to prove he is in fact the real deal.

Even though Philadelphia didn’t address their need at the offensive line until the final day of the draft, there is confidence that Jack Driscoll and Prince Tega Wanogho will turn out to be steals.

Coincidentally, the two lineman happened to play together at Auburn, meaning the Eagles must have been in love with what they saw from the Tigers on offense protection wise throughout the 2019 season.

Once again, this is another scenario in which Philadelphia can afford to be a little patient if needed since Driscoll and Wanogho both appear to have some important developing to do before they are ready to start at the NFL level.

A quarterback like Wentz with his history of injuries can never have too much protection on the depth chart in case something were to happen during the regular season, and here’s to hoping this Auburn duo does in fact end up being Day 3 steals for the NFC East champions.
