Tight Ends

  1. Dallas Goedert, Eagles (89)
  2. Darren Waller, Giants (86)
  3. Logan Thomas, Commanders (72)
  4. Jake Ferguson, Cowboys (71)

No qualms with the top two. Goedert is one of the better tight ends in the league. In 12 games last season, he caught 55 passes for 702 yards. The same goes for Waller, who was traded to the Giants from Las Vegas this offseason. Thomas' stock has plummeted the last two years, while Ferguson is a 71 entering year two.

Offensive linemen

  1. Zack Martin, Cowboys (99)
  2. Lane Johnson, Eagles (98)
  3. Andrew Thomas, Giants (92)
  4. Jason Kelce, Eagles (92)
  5. Tyron Smith, Cowboys (89)

Again, spot on. Martin became the first offensive linemen since 2003 to join the 99 club, while Johnson has been the game's best RT for multiple years. Thomas enjoyed a breakout campaign as a sophomore and is now regarded as one of the best young LTs in the sport and Kelce has long been the best center in the NFL. Smith might be lucky with his 89, but his reputation around the league is undeniable.

Interior defensive linemen

  1. Dexter Lawrence, Giants (94)
  2. Jonathan Allen, Commanders (92)
  3. DaRon Payne, Commanders (83)
  4. Fletcher Cox, Eagles (82)
  5. Jalen Carter, Eagles (79)
  6. Jordan Davis, Eagles (79)

These rankings are … something. While Lawrence deserves to top the division, Payne receiving a 83 overall is flat-out disrespectful. He’s one of the six or seven most productive players at the position and was paid like it this offseason. He should be at least a 90 overall. 

The Eagles round out the bottom three, which means no Cowboys made the cut. At 77 overall, Osa Odighizuwa isn’t far behind the Eagles trio.
