Here are three early options on the offensive side of the ball.

The best offensive line in the NFL is always taking applications for new hires, and while Zion Nelson (Miami Hurricanes), Anton Harrison (Oklahoma Sooners), and Jaelyn Duncan (Maryland Terrapins) might be the cream of the crop at the tackle position, Nick Broeker (Ole Miss Rebels) gives them someone who’s equally proficient at playing the tackle and guard positions.

The Eagles could look totally different at the tailback position in 2023. Jason Huntley’s chances of making the roster are hanging by a thread. Boston Scott and Miles Sanders aren’t signed past this season which could mean, that if Kennedy Brooks isn’t a part of the long-term plans, Kenneth Gainwell is the only familiar face who will still be on the Birds’ roster in 2023.

Keep an eye on not only Bijan Robinson but also Kenny McIntosh (Georgia), Zach Charbonnet (UCLA Bruins), and Zach Evans (Ole Miss). Robinson tallied 1,127 yards and 11 touchdowns while carving out a 5.8-yards-per-carry average.

The Birds have a solid core at wide receiver now with A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Quez Watkins firmly fixated in their nest, but if they’re truly interested in getting, for lack of a better term, jiggy, LSU’s Kayshon Boutte or someone in that class could really elevate the Eagles’ passing attack to near-nuclear levels.

Keep an eye on him, but make sure you set yourself a few reminders to check out Jaxon Smith-Njigba (Ohio State Buckeyes), Dontay Demus Jr. (Maryland Terrapins), Cedric Tillman (Tennessee Volunteers), Dontayvion Wicks (Virginia Cavaliers), and Jayden Reed (Michigan State Spartans) too.
