Has anyone else noticed the Eagles have a lot of talented offensive linemen and tight ends?

The Eagles are home to the NFL's best offensive line and a young star at tight end (Dallas Goedert). There are, however, some positions that need filling.

4. Tyree Jackson, tight end

Remember this guy? The Philadelphia Eagles haven't given up on the Tyree Jackson experiment yet. When he's healthy, it's easy to see why. He's more athletic and smooth than you would expect a six-foot-seven, 249-pounder to be.

Injuries have thrown wrenches in the operation. Now, the tight end room, one that figures to carry three men on the 53-man roster, is crowded with Jackson, Dallas Goedert, Jack Stoll, Dan Arnold, Grant Calcaterra, and Brady Russell. The competition at this position is officially must-see television.

5. Jack Driscoll, offensive lineman

Jack Driscoll is a lot better than most give him credit for. Unfortunately, he is also in danger of falling victim to the numbers game.

The starting lineup is set with Jordan Mailata, Landon Dickerson, Jason Kelce, Cam Jurgens, and Lane Johnson, Tyler Steen will make the roster as well which means Driscoll is competing with Dennis Kelly, Josh Sills, Brett Toth, Roderick Johnson, Fred Johnson, Cameron Tom, Josh Andrews, Sua Opeta, Tyrese Robinson, and Julian Good-Jones for what might be four available roster spots.

Stay tuned. This should be fun.
