The Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive line needs a facelift.

Hopefully, this isn’t an area where this team will continue to have issues. Many of their late-round draft selections and undrafted free agents that have played so far this season have been decent. With another offseason for the younger lineman, they could all evolve into guys that could start if need be.

Here are a few questions that need to be asked though. Who’s the best option to fill the role of starting left tackle, Andre Dillard or Jordan Mailata? What happens if Jason Kelce retires. The three-time Pro Bowler has been beaten up throughout his career, and this could be his last season.

Prediction: Jason Kelce retires, and Isaac Seumalo takes over at center. Nate Herbig moves to left guard, and Jordan Mailata will wind up being the starting left tackle.

The Philadelphia Eagles need to get Miles Sanders some help.

This is an area that has seen its fair share of questions, and since the season began, Miles Sanders has had injury issues and Boston Scott has been up and down. During 2021’s offseason, the Eagles may look to pick up an inexpensive running back in free agency, or they could possibly draft one. Sanders will still be the top running back on the depth chart, but it should be obvious by now that he shouldn’t be treated like the bell cow that the Eagles want him to be.

Prediction: The Eagles won’t re-sign Corey Clement, but they should think about someone like James White in free agency.
