1. Philadelphia Eagles

Since Dallas Goedert has taken over for Zach Ertz as the full-time starter, he has put up consistent numbers in Philadelphia. That's ultimately why the top spot went to the Eagles on this list.

Goedert has yet to make a Pro Bowl in his career, but he has put up back-to-back impressive seasons. The tight end had 56 catches for 830 yards and four touchdowns in 2021, and 55 catches for 702 yards and four touchdowns in 2022.

His recent play and ability to stay on the field were ultimately the difference maker in the ranking. Goedert has missed seven games over the past two seasons. However, he usually returns and continues to play at a high level.

Behind Goedert on the depth is Dan Arnold. The Eagles signed the tight end to a one-year deal this offseason, and he gives the team another veteran presence at that position. Arnold has never been known as a big playmaker. But he has reeled in 1,258 yards over his career, including a 438-yard campaign in 2020 with the Arizona Cardinals.

The Eagles will enter the season with the top tight end group in the NFC East. But things can easily change as the year goes on.
