As Philadelphia Eagles fans, you may need to understand Pryor’s at his ceiling.

We’ve figured out who’s on the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting offensive line is, or at least four-fifths of it. None of this should come as a surprise because most of these guys have been hanging around the NovaCare Complex for a while. Isaac Seumalo and Brandon Brooks are the guards. Jason Kelce is the center.

Hopefully, Lane Johnson is one-hundred percent healthy again as he’s slotted at the right tackle position, and as you know, Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard will battle it out for the left tackle job. The loser of that will still make the roster as will Jake Driscoll. He’s a beast. There’s also no way that Philly is leaving Landon Dickerson, Philly’s second-round draft choice, off of the 53-man roster.

Now, if you’re keeping count, that’s eight guys. Philly figures to keep ten offensive linemen (maybe), so if we’re correct about the numbers, Harry Crider, Luke Juriga, Ross Pierschbacher, Kayode Awosika, Nate Herbig, Sua Opeta, Le’Raven Clark, Brett Toth, Casey Tucker, and Matt Pryor are all in competition for what might be two spots on the roster.

Herbig and Opeta, seemingly, are both a notch above Pryor on the Eagles depth chart. It also feels like Pryor, despite being someone the coaches feel can play multiple positions, isn’t really going to be great at either one of them. We’ve seen his ceiling. It isn’t a very high one. It’s time for the Birds to see what some of these other guys on the roster have in their arsenal.
