Philadelphia Eagles’ O-line No. 1 in PFF’s Rankings Entering 2022 Season
The Philadelphia Eagles offensive line was clearly one of the strengths of the 2021 team and they return essentially the entire starting group and some key backups as well in 2022. .
Pro Football Focus ranked the O-line as the best in football heading into the 2022 season, according to PFF’s Michael Renner, they are in the minor or no weakness category.
There may not be a single below-average starter along the Eagles' offensive line. Pair that with arguably the best tackle duo in the NFL, and there’s no debate about which team's offensive line belongs at No. 1 heading into 2022. Jordan Mailata's incredible development at left tackle can't be understated. After not playing a snap in his first two NFL seasons, Mailata went from spot starter at left tackle in 2020 to the third-highest-graded player at the position in the NFL last season.
The website points out the Eagles tackle combination as possibly the best in football, thanks in part to the development of Jordan Mailata.
Lane Johnson and Jason Kelce are the two veterans of the unit, and the left side of the line enters its second season together with Mailata and Landon Dickerson playing next to each other.
The one spot up for grabs appears to be the right guard spot, with Isaac Seumalo and Jack Driscoll likely to battle it out for the starting spot, replacing Brandon Brooks, who retired after missing all of last season with an injury.
There is plenty of talent behind the starting unit, with former first-round pick Andre Dillard, Sua Opeta, Jack Anderson, veteran La'Raven Clark, the loser of the right guard battle and rookie second-round pick Cam Jurgens proving plenty of depth.
The Eagles are one of four NFL teams that PFF ranked in the top tier of their tanking with Cleveland, Detroit, and Tampa Bay the others.
In the NFC East, Dallas was in Tier 2, "high floor", ranking No. 6 overall, Washington was No. 15 overall in Tier 3, with "high-end potential" and the Giants were ranked No. 18 overall in Tier 4, "at least one good tackle" category.
