4. player. 54. . . . Javon Hargrave and Jordan Davis?

The Eagles’ offensive and defensive line will be the driving force of this team’s success.

The defensive tackle position might be the most loaded that Philly has. They wouldn’t have it any other way either.

Dare we say it? Fletcher Cox may be nearing the end of what’s been a great career. He’ll continue to be heavily involved in the game plan and rotation, but when it’s all said and done, another of Philly’s Pro Bowlers from a season ago, Javon Hargrave, and rookie Jordan Davis could prove to be one of the more feared D-tackle combos in the NFL.

Keep an eye on second-year man Milton Williams. He’s no slouch either.

54. . . . Lane Johnson, Jordan Mailata. 3. player

The best offensive line in the NFL is led by the best offensive line coach in the NFL, Jeff Stoutland. It’s anchored by a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Jason Kelce. They’re solid at both guard spots with Landon Dickerson and Isaac Seumalo.

This Eagles team has depth, and its O-line’s bookends don’t get the credit that they deserve. Jordan Mailata and Lane Johnson both should have been voted to the Pro Bowl last season. Both were ignored. Make no mistake about it. They’ll keep Jalen Hurts upright all season and continue to assist in clearing holes for the rushing attack.
