Here’s a ranking of every Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman before camp.
How strange is it to say that, with a good portion of the same cast that helped the Philadelphia Eagles earn the Built Ford Tough Offensive Line of the Year Award just one night before Super Bowl LII, this same unit failed the eyeball test and in most of the important statistical categories that fans, coaches, and the media care about during the 2020 NFL season?
You saw it for yourself. Hey, what can you do? That’s how quickly things change in the NFL.
Now, while most of the offensive line’s issues can be blamed on injuries, that’s an oversimplification of something much deeper. With the exception of the left tackle position, where the Birds figure to feature one of their more interesting battles during camp, this team’s starters are aging, and more often than not, they haven’t filled out the roster with quality reserves.
Prince Tega Wanogho didn’t work out. Their first-round selection from 2019 (Andre Dillard) got hurt before the season began a year ago, and what did Philly do this past April? They went out and drafted another offensive lineman that has had injury concerns as recently as last season (Landon Dickerson). Sheesh.
Now, here’s the thing. If Dickerson is healthy, he’s probably the best interior offensive lineman in the most recent draft class. Keep your fingers crossed. In the meantime, here’s a ranking of every offensive lineman on the Eagles roster as we near camp.
