Eagles Offensive Line Close to Being an Elite Group
2 June 2017 Eagles News
The Philadelphia Eagles offensive line in 2017 could be the best it’s ever been. Not only can it be the best ever talent-wise, but also depth wise. The Eagles head office has done their fair share of paying big money to keep their players while finding other versatile assets through the draft and free agency.
The current starting lineup during the Eagles OTA’s includes (from left tackle to right tackle) Jason Peters, Isaac Seumalo, Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks and Lane Johnson. The reserve offensive linemen include Stefen Wisniewski, Halapoulivaati and Chance Warmack just to name a few.
Heading into the 2017 season, every linemen has had some accolade except for the second year guard Seumalo. Peters and Kelce were both selected to the Pro Bowl, Brooks was one of the top performing guards in the league and Johnson looked unstoppable until his PED incident. Now, all will be back with an an added chemistry like never before.
Pro Football Focus ranked the Eagles as having he No. 8 offensive line in the entire league last season all while the team was missing a right tackle for 10 games and had plenty of linemen go down with injuries. With a healthy group, the Eagles offensive line can make a push to be one of the top-5 best positional groups in the NFL.
