Andre Dillard, Isaac Seumalo, Jason Kelce, Jack Driscoll, Lane Johnson, Nate Herbig, Matt Pryor, Jordan Mailata
Until about a week or so ago, the Eagles would have made this a bit closer of a comparison with the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately for them, their best offensive lineman, Brandon Brooks suffered a season-ending torn Achilles last Tuesday.
This is a huge loss for the Eagles, as pointed out in this article by Grant Gordon from NFL.com. Replacing a three-time Pro Bowl player is not an easy task. Replacing someone who graded out as the best at his position in 2019 is incredibly daunting.
Not only do the Eagles have to move on without Brooks, but they are also preparing for life without long-time left tackle, Jason Peters. Last year’s first-round pick Andre Dillard takes over at this spot which will make 2020 his first full season as a starter.
The Eagles still can rely on two mainstays of their line, however, in center Jason Kelce and right tackle Lane Johnson. Kelce is one of the league’s best, while Johnson has lived up to his high draft status, earning three consecutive Pro Bowl bids as well as one All-Pro nomination.
Still, the losses may outweigh what is left of one of the best lines in the game. How the Eagles manage this position will likely be their biggest storyline of 2020.
