Let’s stack the last four Eagles draft classes and hand out a few grades.

Here’s one of those things that you have heard a time or two. The roster is the backbone of every NFL team. The better your players are, the higher your chances of success become. In 2022, the Philadelphia Eagles fielded one of the best teams that we have seen in this franchise’s history. It didn’t lead to a Super Bowl win, and with that being said, they’ll always be remembered as, not only one of the most talented teams we have seen but one of the most disappointing. The good news is the roster remains in pretty good shape.

Last year’s Eagles team fielded eight Pro Bowlers. Five were drafted by the organization (QB Jalen Hurts, running back Miles Sanders, tackle Lane Johnson, guard Landon Dickerson, and center Jason Kelce).

Five of their Pro Bowlers (Johnson, Kelce, Hurts, A.J. Brown, and Haason Reddick) were named as either the First or Second-Team All-Pros. James Bradberry joined Jalen, A.J., and Haason on the Second Team. All of those guys are back except for Miles Sanders.

Executive Vice President/General Manager Howie Roseman has earned a lot of praise for the roster he has built and the most recent NFL Draft class the Eagles have added. How do seven of the newest Birds stack up when compared to the three draft classes Philly added ahead of them? We’re glad you asked. Here’s your power ranking.
