The Philadelphia Eagles need to upgrade the offensive line.

Virginia Tech Hokie offensive linemen Christian Darrisaw could come in and immediately be the starting left tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles. Blessed with an amazing athletic ability to go with his great size (he’s six-foot-five and tips the scales at 315 pounds. Darrisaw has all the tools to be a road-grading lineman at the highest level.

The Philadelphia Eagles had an okay season upfront despite being ravaged by injuries in 2020. The need for an upgrade on the offensive line stands out among the array of issues this roster is enduring.

Darrisaw is not your normal big man as he can get out in front of a runner and lead the way to glory. He has the thick base coaches love in their prospects and a violent punch at the point of contact, to go along with his aggressive play.

A lifelong Philadelphia Eagles fan, Darrisaw would more than likely be ecstatic if the Birds were to trade down and scoop him up.
