The Philadelphia Eagles will have healthy options if they go the route of adding an EDGE star in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Say what you want about Andy Reid. His fingerprints are still on this Philadelphia Eagles franchise. Whether we’re discussing the legendary careers of Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, and Jason Kelce (three guys he drafted) or this team’s addiction to building from the trenches, Reid’s imprint and way of doing things are still present.
The 2012 NFL season was his final run as the Eagles’ head coach. People still disagree on how he is viewed and how good of a job he did, but two things are certain.
One, his 14 years in the City of Brotherly Love brought us some of the best football we have ever seen this franchise play. Second, Philly’s probably going to draft an offensive lineman or a defensive lineman with one of those two first-round draft choices… if not both of them. Love him or hate him, they learned that from Big Red.
With that said, with the Senior Bowl in our rearview mirror, we look at the best EDGE stars in 2023’s NFL Draft, especially seeing as how Brandon Graham and Robert Quinn have yet to sign extensions and Derek Barnett will be coming off of a significant injury in 2023.
We begin with our honorable mentions, Keion White of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, and Byron Young of the Tennessee Volunteers. They sit just outside of our top ten.
