The 2013 draft was another success for the Philadelphia Eagles.
3. Zach Ertz, tight end.
Though many fans will agree that Zach Ertz’s performance has fallen off greatly this season, he still has to be considered as one of the best tight ends in the league (when he’s both focused and healthy). Ertz was drafted in the second round of 2013’s selection meeting and has been great for the majority of his Philadelphia Eagles career.
The three-time Pro Bowler holds the NFL record for the most receptions in a single season by a tight end, a record that was held by Dallas Cowboys legend and Oakland Raiders’ tight end, Jason Witten. 86 may not be with the Iggles in 2021, but he has solidified himself as one of the all-time greats in franchise history.
4. Lane Johnson, tackle.
In the first round in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Eagles had selected Lane Johnson from Oklahoma. Like Jason Kelce, Johnson has been a staple of this Eagles offense since being drafted. The All-Pro right tackle has locked down the offensive line’s right side for the majority of his career.
Even while dealing with injuries, Johnson has shown Eagles fans just how much of an asset he is to this franchise’s overall success. There have been a few rough patches in his career (two suspensions for using performance-enhancing drugs), but he was one of the better picks by Philly. At the very least, he’ll be in the Eagles’ Hall of Fame.
