For the great Brandon Brooks, both of the Eagles’ 2018 and 2019 runs ended with season-ending injuries. Jason Kelce is nearing the end of what’s arguably a borderline Pro Football Hall of Fame career. Andre Dillard is a question mark. Lane Johnson is starting to get a little long in the tooth. Isaac Seumalo is versatile, but Philly would rather not have to rely on him to slide over and play center if possible.
Yes, Philly added both Jack Driscoll and Prince Tega Wanogho in the draft. Is Driscoll the successor to Kelce? That remains to be seen, but let’s just say by the time 2020’s season rolls around, the Eagles have moved on from Jordan Mailata, a very real possibility. Matt Pryor and Sua Opeta are currently still on the roster, but if history is any indication, any plans we have for Philly’s offensive line probably won’t come to fruition.
Might the Eagles add an interior lineman as their final pick of the 2021 draft? The goal is always to keep Carson Wentz upright, and we know how hard it is for the Eagles coaching staff to ignore versatile offensive lineman. We also know pro football is won in the trenches. Adding depth along the offensive front may not be a bad idea.
Emil Ekiyor Jr. of “The Tide” definitely qualifies as a solid option. He’s six-foot-three and weighs 326 pounds. Keep an eye on him all season long. It’s probably safe to assume that Alabama will be on television a few times, so you can check him out.
