Eagles’ Jason Kelce Ranked Top 5 in PFF’s Center Rankings
After 10 season in the NFL, Eagles center Jason Kelce is still one of the best according to Pro Football Focus’ latest rankings.
The former sixth-round pick was among the top centers in the league entering the 2021 season according to PFF’s centers rankings released earlier this week.
Kelce falls on the opposite end of the spectrum compared to Hudson and Tretter. There are few years in his career where he has graded out higher as a pass protector than he has as a run blocker, but that’s primarily because he’s been one of the best run-blocking centers in the NFL. That was no different at 33 years old in 2020. Kelce was the lone staple in an ever-changing offensive line in Philadelphia, and his 79.0 run-blocking grade ranked as a top-five mark at the position.
Despite playing through a sprained MCL, broken foot and injured elbow last season, Kelce was the fifth highest center graded out by PFF as one of the best run-blocking centers in the NFL.
The Eagles are hoping to get another strong season from the 33-year old Kelce and hope he can be part of a much better offensive line this season for new quarterback Jalen Hurts. .
The center has been a mainstay on the Eagles offensive line since being drafted in the sixth-round of the 2011 draft pick out of Cincinnati.
He was the highest rated center in the NFC East, Washington’s Chase Roullier was the next highest center on the list at No. 10. He’s followed Nick Gates of the New York Giants at No. 20 and Biadasz of the Dallas Cowboys came in at No. 21.
