. player. 54. . . . Tight End

Meet the guys charged with doing the dirty work.

Much is settled along the offensive line. It’s another story at tight end.

Top three: Dallas Goedert, Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra

Tyree Jackson and Richard Rodgers begin training camp on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform list). Otherwise, both would probably be ranked higher than Grant Calcaterra. Don’t be surprised if the rookie climbs and works his way onto the 53-man roster though.

The low man on the depth chart: Jaeden Graham

We’ll be totally honest here. Once it was learned that the Eagles had added Jaeden Graham, we had to Google him (we haven’t watched this much Yale in a while). He hasn’t played since 2020, but even though he has more in-game experience than Noah Togiai, the latter is more familiar with the organization, and he’s been here for a while.

. player. 54. . . . Tackle

Top three: Jordan Mailata, Lane Johnson, Andre Dillard

Here’s more confirmation of something we already knew. It’s amazing that, in the end, Jordan Mailata turned out to be so much better than Andre Dillard (and that Mailata can play both tackle positions while Andre can only play on the left side), but it is what it is.

At least the Birds have some insurance should anything happen.

The low man on the depth chart: Le’Raven Clark

Jack Driscoll will make the team, and he can play both guard and tackle. That leaves Le’Raven Clark, though talented, as the low man on the totem pole.

player. 54. . . . Interior linemen.

Top three: Jason Kelce, Landon Dickerson, Isaac Seumalo

Is there any doubt why the Eagles have the NFL’s best offensive line?

The low man on the depth chart: Josh Sills, William Dunkle, and Cameron Tom

The Eagles like Jack Anderson a lot, but he could realistically be left off of the roster. Sua Opeta will make the team. Kayode Awosika can play inside and outside and should be intriguing to watch throughout the preseason.
