2015 Depth Charts: Philadelphia Eagles
• Despite a solid stretch in 2013, Nick Foles fell back down somewhat in 2014. Grading positively in just three games last year and missing half of a season through injury, it’s not surprising that there has been talk about the Eagles looking to upgrade at the position.
• The strength of the Eagles’ offense is the offensive line, with both Jason Peters and Evan Mathis up there with the best in the league. Center Jason Kelce isn’t too far behind, while right tackle Lane Johnson continues to impress in his young career.
• At cornerback Cary Williams continues to be up and down. He’s capable of some impressive plays in coverage, but finds himself beaten by double moves too often to be considered anything better than average.
• At PFF we’ve been able to the performances of long snappers further in the last two seasons. This year, nobody performed better than the Eagles’ Jon Dorenbos, with just three snaps off target all season.
Wide Receiver: We saw the Eagles look to bring in some more talent at receiver a year ago with Jordan Matthews, and that should continue again this year. Riley Cooper isn’t the top player that they need and, if Jeremy Maclin leaves as a free agent they’ll need to replace him as a starter.
Inside Linebacker: Mychal Kendricks has improved a lot in one spot after a rocky start to his career, but at this point they could do better than DeMeco Ryans next to him. He hasn’t had a positively graded season since 2012, so it’s fair to question if he can ever get back to that.
Quarterback: It’s frequently said that you don’t need a top quarterback in Chip Kelly’s offense, but that’s not to say that they still shouldn’t look to upgrade at the position. With the Oregon connection there will be plenty of talk about moving up in the draft for Marcus Mariota, but it seems likely that they’ll try to upgrade at the position in some way.
