Who are the backups on the Philadelphia Eagles offensive line?
With more than 100 Division I programs to choose from and offensive lineman playing all over the country, somehow the Eagles started watching Auburn Tigers games and got tunnel vision. Oh, you don’t believe that? Well, how on Earth did Philly get the idea to add both of Auburn’s starting tackles, Jack Driscoll and Prince Tega Wanogho to the nest on Day 3 of the most recent selection meeting?
Perhaps they were intrigued by how well that Auburn running game was working?
Here’s what we know about the Eagles’ offensive line. We can name the starting five with no assistance. Andre Dillard and Lane Johnson are the tackles. Isaac Seumalo and Brandon Brooks are the guards. The All-Pro, Jason Kelce, might be entering his final season with the team, but he’s the center.
Rumors of Jason Peters’ return haven’t led to anything concrete yet, but that’s an idea that’s probably still being tossed around among the members of the Eagles coaching staff and with Philly’s brass. The question is who are the reserves? Can Driscoll and Tega Wanogho make the roster, or will Philly go with guys they’re more familiar with like Matt Pryor, Jordan Mailata, Sua Opeta, and Nate Herbig?
Say tuned for the answers to those questions and more.
