The Philadelphia Eagles offensive line needs to set the tone this season.
Former Alabama Crimson Tide offensive lineman Landon Dickerson is a monster. That’s it. That’s all you need to know about the six-foot-six, 335-pound mountain.
Watching the rising star’s film makes it easy to be impressed with his style of play. Don’t be fooled by his giant smile or teddy-bear persona. The guy is a road grader looking for a fistfight.
What’s even more impressive is his ability to play all five spots on the offensive line. That should come in handy for a Philadelphia Eagles team that has struggled with injuries a lot over the course of the past few seasons.
Are you familiar with the term ‘tone setter’? Well, that is exactly who and what Landon Dickerson is. That’s something the Eagles’ offense has lacked for a while. When healthy, this unit is one of the best in the National Football League, but even when healthy, they lacked a certain punch about them. Moving forward, we can expect that from the rookie offensive lineman and the group as a whole once he’s inserted into the lineup.
Sure, expect that giant smile. Expect to see his charisma and great personality, but make no mistake about it. This young man is looking to attack opposing defenses on a week-to-week basis.
