Philadelphia Eagles receiving praise for their dominant offseason

Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links …

2024 offseason grades for all 32 NFL teams: Eagles, Chiefs and Bears among teams to get As – PFF
The Eagles are offseason dominators: Amid several significant departures, including two retirements, Philadelphia drafted well and signed key players in free agency, including C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Bryce Huff, Devin White and DeVante Parker. […] PHILADELPHIA EAGLES: A. I don’t know how the Eagles continue to do it. They lost Kevin Byard and D’Andre Swift this offseason, but Byard wasn’t as impactful as they hoped he would be and they replaced Swift with Saquon Barkley. They also added C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Bryce Huff, Devin White and DeVante Parker. Adding to the significant departures were Fletcher Cox and Jason Kelce retiring. Then the Eagles dominated the draft again, grabbing Quinyon Mitchell and Cooper DeJean to attack their biggest roster need. Philadelphia spiraled at the end of the 2023 season but has its foot on the gas for 2024.

Can Nick Sirianni regain his mojo? – BGN
The Eagles should win 11 or 12 games this season. They should. The depth and personnel are there. The experience, though it took a hit with the retirements of Jason Kelce and Fletcher Cox, is there. The coaching, with the addition of two assertive, respected coordinators in Vic Fangio and Kellen Moore, is there. The schedule, despite an early bye, is more favorable than not. Everything appears right for the Eagles to win the NFC East for the second time in three years and to make a deep playoff push. The one dangling caveat is whether head coach Nick Sirianni can return to the coach he was when this team got off to a combined 18-1 start over the first eight games in 2022, and first 11 in 2023. He is 34-17 in his first three years, which is more victories than any previous Eagles coach in that time-frame. He has proven he can win in the NFL—with Shane Steichen and Jonathan Gannon as his coordinators.

An early look at what positions are strong in the 2025 NFL Draft – PhillyVoice
Each of the above media outlets agree that it could be a very strong edge rusher draft. The Eagles are always shopping for more edge rusher talent, obviously, but they’ll also have a need with Brandon Graham playing his last NFL season in 2024, and Josh Sweat likely to play elsewhere in 2025. It also looks like it could be a strong interior defensive line draft, where the Eagles have spent a lot of draft resources in recent years, but are also arguably thin heading into 2024.

Eagles rookie was ‘heartbeat’ of his college team: ‘You’re going to have to drag this kid off the field’ – NJ.com
Will cares about his teammates, too. In 2022, he was worried about whether walk-on running back Kevin McNeal, who couldn’t attend fall camp because the NCAA only allowed 110 players to participate in preseason practices at the time, would have enough funds to eat while he was away from the team. He brought up this concern to Spiller and came up with a plan to help McNeal. Will’s actions strengthened the relationships in the running back room. “He was the heartbeat of our team and everybody knew that,” Spiller said.

When will top NFL Draft picks face each other? Best rookie matchups on 2024 schedule – The Athletic
Week 18: New York Giants at Philadelphia EaglesCBs Quinyon Mitchell (Round 1, pick 22) and Cooper DeJean (Round 2, pick 40) vs. WR Malik Nabers (Round 1, pick 6). This matchup is on the docket for Week 7, too, in New Jersey. It’s hard to know exactly how the Eagles’ secondary will line up in Week 1, let alone by either of its games against the Giants — veteran starting CBs Darius Slay and James Bradberry are still around, as is 2023 fourth-rounder Kelee Ringo (39.8 snaps per game over the final five weeks last season), and versatile safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson returned during the offseason. But you’re usually not spending top-40 picks on guys like Mitchell and DeJean just for them to sit around. Nabers, meanwhile, will head into the season as an obvious candidate for Offensive Rookie of the Year consideration, with little of note standing between him and WR1 duties on the Giants.

Cowboys 2024 schedule: Way-too-early win/loss game predictions – Blogging The Boys
Week 17: Cowboys @ Eagles. The Cowboys and Eagles are liable to split, and and that is what happens here with a Cowboys loss. Playing in Philadelphia late in the season is a tough task, and despite a close contest, the Eagles find a way to get the W over the Cowboys, giving Dallas their sixth loss of the season. Score prediction: Eagles, 24-23 (10-6).

New York Giants ‘shocked’ NFL by passing on QB in 2024 NFL Draft – Big Blue View
Are you still trying to process why the New York Giants ignored the quarterback position in the 2024 NFL Draft? Apparently, NFL talent evaluators are, as well. Here is a note from a recent story by Jason LaCanfora of The Washington Post: Every evaluator I spoke with was shocked the New York Giants sat out this draft’s quarterback derby. “They must really love their roster, but I don’t,” the GM said. “I don’t think they can win with that group and Daniel Jones.” The general belief is it was [Drake] Maye or nothing for the Giants at the most critical position, and after the Patriots stayed at No. 3 and took Maye, the Giants wound up with wide receiver Malik Nabers at No. 6. LaCanfora said NFL evaluators expect the Giants to be in the quarterback market in the 2025 NFL Draft. That, of course, is not a shock.

Why the Slide? Illinois DT Jer’Zhan “Johnny” Newton – Hogs Haven
It seems that the main reasons that Newton slid had to do with inconsistencies in run defense and lacking prototypical size for the position, although missing time with the foot injury was a factor as well. While you never want to hear an early round defender has a weakness in run defense, overall, that could still be good news for the Commanders. None of Campbell’s sources cited medical issues as a primary concern.

3 teams who were absolutely screwed by the NFL schedule, and 3 who weren’t – SB Nation
No. 1: Atlanta Falcons. There’s no doubt Atlanta have a rough start to the year by facing the Steelers, Eagles and Chiefs — but from there it’s all gravy. Once the Falcons round out the first month, the schedule breaks incredibly easy for them, with very few rough patches or difficult back-to-back games. Their only short portion involves facing the Saints, Buccaneers and Panthers — all of which should be supremely easy games, meaning they’ll be in good stead for a playoff run. Couple this with a Week 12 bye which comes at a pretty ideal time and all the pieces are there for a good run.
