In a world where availability is a skill and injuries have been more common during the Doug Pederson era than anyone who cheers for this team would like. Luke Juriga represents some stability and reliability for this Eagles offensive line.
Juriga is a six-foot-four and 301-pound standout that started every one of his 52 career games with the Western Michigan Broncos. He also showed some versatility as he filled the role of starting guard for 38 of those games and starting center for the other 14.
In 2017, as a sophomore, he earned Second Team All-MAC honors before fighting his way into First Team All-MAC honors in 2018 and, again, in 2019, but no one’s going to ever confuse NCAA Mid-American Conference Football with what we see in the Power Five conferences. The question is can his success translate to the professional level?
With the starting offensive line set (Andre Dillard, Isaac Seumalo, Jason Kelce, Jason Peters, and Lane Johnson), and with it being relatively clear who the reserves are (Prince Tega-Wanogho, Nate Herbig, Matt Pryor, and Jack Driscoll) if Philly does hold on to ten offensive linemen, a real possibility, you have to assume that, right now, Casey Tucker, Sua Opeta, and Julian Good-Jones have a leg up on Juriga for a final spot on this Eagles roster.
