Peter King’s NFL Power Ranking Have Philadelphia Eagles in Top 10
Now that the draft is behind us and the second and third wave of free agency is pretty much in the books, we are getting into OTA's and mini-caps, with training camp right around the corner.
The Eagles have made a few more upgrades post draft, with the biggest one, adding cornerback James Bradberry.
So where does the national media see the Eagles after an offseason where they have added Haason Reddick, A.J. Brown, Kyzir White and Bradberry in free agency. Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean among others in the draft.
One of the most respected names in the NFL, longtime writer Peter King of NBC Sports, published his latest power rankings with the Eagles landing inside the Top 10 at No. 9.
That might seem a bit high, but it’s not an outrageous with all the new faces the team added after a nine win season and playoff appearance in 2021.
The Eagles are the highest ranked NFC East team, with Dallas next at No. 15.
I picked the Eagles ahead of Dallas because the Eagles got significantly better this offseason and Dallas worse, with the subtraction of two key contributors (Amari Cooper and Randy Gregory) and the addition of none.
Next up in the NFC East it was a bit of a surprise the Giants at No. 24 and Washington at No. 26.
In terms of the NFC, the Eagles at No. 9 are the third highest ranked team in the conference behind the Rams (4), Packers (5) and Tampa Bay (6).
The Eagles are better on both sides of the ball than they were in January, and that was capped by the Bradberry signing. In the end, they have a chance to win a game in January.
King mentions that the team is set up to win now and in the future and mentions the additions of Brown, Reddick and Bradberry as key reasons why the Eagles could win a playoff game this season.
