The Philadelphia Eagles front office needs to address the offensive line asap.

Ohio State offensive lineman Josh Myers could be the future heir to the Jason Kelce throne. He is six-foot-five and 315 pounds of a scrappy athletic freakish athleticism. He plays with the anger you want in your offensive linemen, and he has the ability to dominate at the next level.

Meyers has rare speed for a man his size to go along with the thick base that helps him bully defensive linemen. The Eagles could really benefit from adding the former Buckeye.

Watching him move big-bodied defenders with his violent hands is a thing of beauty. He is a true leader in the middle of the field and has the football IQ coaches want in their players.

No matter the scheme, Myers fits as he is a versatile lineman. He is a true road grader in the run game and has the smooth footwork to keep him upright in the passing game.

Adding talent to the offensive line should be at the top of the front office’s to-do list.
