Where do the Eagles offensive stars rank according to NFL insiders?

It should come as no surprise that the offense that set franchise records in points and wins had plenty of well-known stars.

As the Philadelphia Eagles prepare to repeat their success from last season, their offensive stars were highlighted among the league best at their respective positions by coaches, players, and executives. ESPN’s survey of the best at each position concluded Tuesday morning and while their defense had plenty of nominees, the Eagles’ offense had top players at almost every position.

Let’s take a look at the full cast of characters listed:

Jalen Hurts (6th)

Hurts’ meteoric rise will be compared to and studied over the last few months. The Eagles’ franchise quarterback led the team to the Super Bowl while improving in every single offensive metric used for a quarterback. He was the best passer from the pocket and is expected to take an even bigger leap into the top five of his position this year.

AJ Brown (7th)

Has there been a better trade that paid off immediately than AJ Brown to Philadelphia? The Eagles top receiver set a franchise record in receiving yards last season and helped the offense transform into one of the best in football. Another season with his best friend should help out a great deal for Brown as well.

Dallas Goedert (4th)

As excellent as Zach Ertz was in Philadelphia, Dallas Goedert has been a more complete player thanks to his ability as a blocker, and pass catcher. The Eagles’ top tight end target battled injuries late in the year but was honored as one of the best tight ends this past season.

Lane Johnson (4th)

The only real debate that is going on in regard to the Eagles right now is who has had the better overall career: Lane or Kelce? Both players are heading to Canton when they retire and both continue to beat Father Time to the finish line. Johnson suffered a tough injury at the end of the year, but he’s still the best right tackle in football and showed it by not giving up an entire sack all season again.

Jordan Mailata (5th)

You know your offense is good when both tackles are ranked top five according to the rest of the league. The feel-good story that Jordan Mailata has become is awesome to go through, but his attention to detail and improvements over the years have turned this former seventh-round diamond in the rough into one of the best tackles in the game today.

Jason Kelce (6th*)

Kelce’s ranking comes with an asterisk because he was the top center of the list, but was bunched in with guards for this study by ESPN. Philadelphia’s fan favorite may be at the twilight of his career but he’s still kicking ass as the best center in all of football.

Honorable Mention: DeVonta Smith, Landon Dickerson

Two of the players receiving honorable mentions were taken 1-2 in the draft in 2021. DeVonta Smith is on the precipice of becoming a true #1 receiver while Dickerson is a year away from a potential All-Pro nomination. After this season though, the Eagles will have to focus on both players as they are open to extensions.

Receiving Votes: Miles Sanders

Miles Sanders is now in Carolina but his career year with Philadelphia helped the offense reach a new level of dominance in 2022. He was the first running back to reach over 1,000 yards rushing since LeSean McCoy but simply slowed down during their title run. He’ll be a fan favorite for years to come but the Eagles weren’t going to pay him what Carolina did.
