The Philadelphia Eagles won it all last season, as they surprised the world by beating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. Playing with a backup quarterback in Nick Foles, the Eagles threw all over the Patriots defense, earning MVP honors. Foles replaced Carson Wentz, who tore up his knee in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams, and may not be back for the beginning of the season.
In addition to Wentz blowing out his knee, veteran left tackle Jason Peters also tore up his knee earlier in the season. The Eagles should use their first round pick on a tackle, and Tyrell Crosby should be available this late in round one. He has the size and strength to be a left tackle at the next level, but may want to begin his career on the right side before moving over to protect either Wentz or Foles blindside.
It remains to be seen whether or not Wentz will be back for Week 1, but Foles is quite the backup to have in the organization. The Eagles have the talent to make another run next season, and Crosby helps solidify an offensive line that needs depth. He should be a the team’s starter at right tackle next season, giving the Eagles another solid player to put in front of their franchise quarterback.
