Eagles News: ESPN ranks Philadelphia’s roster second best in NFL

Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles left…

NFL roster rankings for the 2023 season: Strengths, weaknesses – ESPN+
2. Philadelphia Eagles. Strongest unit: Offensive line. Four starters return, with Jordan Mailata and Lane Johnson forming an elite duo at tackle, Jason Kelce back for one more season at pivot and Landon Dickerson locked in at left guard. Isaac Seumalo was the only offseason departure, but GM Howie Roseman was ready after selecting Cam Jurgens (Kelce’s eventual replacement) in the second round of the 2022 draft. Weakest unit: Off-ball linebacker and safety (tie). At linebacker, TJ Edwards and Kyzir White are out and will be replaced by Nicholas Morrow, Nakobe Dean and Davion Taylor. At safety, Terrell Edmunds and Reed Blankenship are competing to replace Marcus Epps and CJ Gardner-Johnson. Morrow and Edmunds are solid players who combined for 1,892 snaps last season, and Dean has upside as a 2022 Day 2 draft pick, but it’s a bit of a concern when your conference champion-winning defense loses five of its top nine snap- getters. X-factor for 2023: CBs Darius Slay and James Bradberry. They were elite a season ago, but corners are awfully picky from year to year, and even stars can’t always be trusted. If they maintain their current level of play, the Eagles’ defense will be mighty again, but that’s no guarantee. Non-starters to know: S Sydney Brown. Brown — a third-round rookie — allowed a 27 QBR when targeted last season at Illinois. No matter what, the Eagles will have turnover at safety after losing Gardner-Johnson and Epps this offseason.

10 Reasons the Eagles Will Be a Dumpster Fire This Season – PhillyVoice
Javon Hargrave was a star in 2022, racking up 60 tackles and 11 sacks. When you see the 11 sacks, you will see that there is no one cheaper, as the quarterback for example. had the pocket collapse around him and he kind of went into the defensive tackle or something. Hargrave destroyed opposing linemen with speed and power and got to the quarterback quickly. I don’t think it has been appreciated by Philadelphians how good that guy was last season and he will be missed. The Eagles still have young, talented interior defensive linemen, but the production they got from Hargrave’s snaps last season likely won’t be replaced to the same degree by whatever combination of players (like Jalen Carter, Milton Williams, etc.) fills in in.

2023 NFL All-Under-25 Team: Sauce Gardner, Justin Jefferson among top young stars – NFL.com
JORDAN DAVIS: He didn’t record a sack as a rookie, so you might not agree with this pick. It is fine; I think it ends up proving prescient. Davis played an important but underplayed role for the Eagles last season, occupying blockers and stuffing running lanes. Look no further than Philadelphia’s decision to hit the free-agent wire and sign not one but two veteran defensive tackles to fill the void left when the rookie missed time with an ankle injury midway through last season. Davis will soon be a household name; Then I take the hat tips.

3 Cowboys bets worth taking a flyer on for the 2023 season – Blogging The Boys
3) Dallas Cowboys to win the NFC East (+190). Having the Cowboys at this high number to win the NFC East is a pretty solid effort. While the Eagles are still the favorite, and probably should be after how they performed last year, you certainly can’t count the Cowboys out. The Eagles have a stretch of their schedule from Week 11 to Week 16 where they will play the Chiefs, Bills, 49ersCowboys, Seahawks, and fighting. That’s a brutal late-season stretch, and they could easily go 3-3 or worse during that stretch of games. If so, the Cowboys could make up for a rough start to the season and make the race for the division title a close one. There hasn’t been a repeat division champion in the NFC East since 2001-2002, so at +190 it’s worth taking a stab at Dallas to take home the division crown.

Giants’ DT Rakeem Nuñez-Roches can help upgrade run defense – Big Blue View
Although Nuñez-Roches has experience as a full-back, he is not known for his passing prowess. His two sacks and three quarterback hits last year were both career highs, and he has just 3.5 sacks in his career. His main contribution will likely come against the run, where the Giants ranked 28th last year in yards allowed. Nuñez-Roches has shown the ability to penetrate the offensive line and is good at chasing down faster running backs. In some ways, Nuñez-Roches is a poor man’s Dexter Lawrence. He can play at nose tackle or elsewhere on the interior. He has impressive quickness and burst off the line for a player of his size. And he has rarely missed games due to injury during his eight-year career.

The Offseason Skeptic Examines Tight Ends – Hogs Haven
If he can stay healthy through camp and the preseason, Turner has a great opportunity to show that his rookie season was a fluke. If he manages to break out in 2023, as some suggest, Commanders fans should appreciate what a remarkable feat he has accomplished. Because few tight ends in the last decade have had successful NFL careers after such a disappointing rookie season.

NFL gambling suspensions include Titans OL Nicholas Petit-Frere, Isaiah Rodgers and Rashod Berry – SB Nation
