2022 NFL Draft: Grades for Jordan Davis and Every Other Philadelphia Eagles Pick

It sure is an exciting time to be a Philadelphia Eagles fan. Not only did they boost their weak front seven by signing pass-rusher Haason Reddick and linebacker Kyzir White in free agency, but they also finally found a No. 1 wide receiver who can help Jalen Hurts throughout the 2022 NFL schedule by trading for former Pro Bowler A.J. Brown on draft night.

Speaking of the 2022 NFL Draft, general manager Howie Roseman hit a home run by adding Georgia defenders Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean, as well as Nebraska center Cam Jurgens, who will serve as Jason Kelce’s eventual replacement in the middle of the offensive line.

Even with the widespread improvements across the roster, though, all eyes will be on Hurts as he enters his third season in midnight green. The 2022-23 season will serve as a tryout for Hurts as he hopes to establish his place as the Eagles’ franchise quarterback moving forward. The offensive line should still be dominant, the running game won’t skip a beat, and the weapons are now in place for Hurts to enjoy a breakout season in his second full year as the starter.

Philadelphia should be able to compete for the NFC East title with a much-improved roster and a young QB with playoff experience now under his belt. Championship expectations might be a tad lofty for the Eagles, but there’s no reason they shouldn’t make the postseason for the second straight year.
