PFF: Eagles’ offensive line unit ranks as best in league
The Philadelphia Eagles’ individual position groups continued to be ranked by Pro Football Focus.
One of the underrated parts about Jalen Hurts massive improvement is the play from the Eagles' offensive line. The unit offers outstanding pass protection and opens up massive holes in the run game.

The Eagles return four of their five starters for the 2023 season, with only the right guard position getting a new look.
Despite the new face, PFF’s Sam Monson believes Philadelphia still has the No. 1 ranked offensive line, which is exactly where they were ranked last season.
The Eagles remain the best offensive line in the game on paper. They lost a starter in the offseason, but 2022 draft pick Cam Jurgens is ready to step in to fill that void. The biggest flaw with this line in 2022 was penalties. With 44 as a unit, the Eagles were tied for the most penalized line in the NFL.
The one new face on the offensive line per PFF will be second-year player Cam Jerjans at right guard, who will battle Tyler Steen for the starting role. Landon Dickerson is at left guard, Jason Kelce is back at center, Jordan Mailate is at left tackle, and Lane Johnson is at right tackle.
With 80% of the starting lineup set to return, Philadelphia should have no issues with continuity. As Monson mentioned, Philadelphia will have to cut back on their penalties, as they were tied for the most penalized unit in the NFL in 2022.
