A healthy Philadelphia Eagles offensive line could be dangerous for the NFL.
Sure, the title says that three guys would be highlighted, but it’s hard to just grab one guy off of this O-line. For that reason, they all get a mention.
The 2020 regular season was a disaster for the Philadelphia Eagles, particularly on offense, and one of the obvious reasons for that was the injuries that were sustained by the offensive line. It seemed like a new lineman would go down weekly, and that would push Philly deeper and deeper into a hole.
This year should be a different scenario as the front office brought in reinforcements to go along with the original lineup of starters that everyone expected to see last season. When Philly’s offensive line is healthy, they are one of the best lines in the National Football League. Fingers are crossed all over the fan base that this unit can stay healthy and lead the Eagles offense into a position where they can be dominant.
Lane Johnson, Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks, Jordan Mailata, and Isaac Seumalo make a dominant front, one that can set the tone weekly. Add former first-round pick, Andre Dillard, to the mix (he was hurt too) to go along with a monster in Landon Dickerson and second-year guard Nate Herbig, and there are reasons to be optimistic.
Moving forward, you can expect to see the Birds run the ball early and often. It should be no surprise if Philadelphia’s front five winds up being one of the league’s best.
