Many experts have the Philadelphia Eagles struggling to finish with a better than .500 record and certainly not ahead of the Dallas Cowboys. But the Eagles have a new coach and a dynamite rookie receiver and plan to compete hard for the NFC East crown.
The Eagles should be much stronger on their offensive line than they were last year, when injuries really shook them up. Jordan Mailata surprised everyone with a solid year stepping in to the starting role and will compete against Andre Dillard for the starting job. Brandon Brooks and Lane Johnson should be healed up and ready to go as well.
But all eyes will be on sensational Heisman trophy winner DeVonta Smith. Lacking height, Smith makes up for that with speed and great route running. He had 23 touchdowns for Alabama last year in just 13 games so he has a nose for the end zone.
And Jalen Hurts will be firmly in control at quarterback now that Carson Wentz has been shipped out. The Eagles led the league by a long shot in sacks given up. But with an improved O line and the elusive Hurts all that should change this year.
