Eagles Draft Grade 2023

Eagles NFL Draft Grade: A+

Our Frank Ammirante gave the Eagles the only A+ grade this year. He cited Philadelphia’s selection of Carter, which would’ve been the top pick of the first round if not for its picking of Smith, the exceptional EDGE from Georgia.

Eagles Draft Team Needs 2023

1. Offensive Line

Two of Philadelphia’s starting-five up front, center Jason Kelce and tackle Lane Johnson are in their 30s, which doesn’t bode well for keeping quarterback Jalen Hurts upright.

Philadelphia fell into a top-10 pick when it offloaded two top-20 picks in a 2022 draft-day deal with the Saints, and that looks like a perfect slot to target a high-end O-lineman.

2. Wide Receiver

The Eagles have a pair of exceptional receivers in A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, but they played in all 17 games, which isn’t going to happen every season. All it takes is a rolled ankle or an awkward plant for Quez Watkins to be the No. 2 option on the outside.

Philadelphia played a run-heavy script more than any other team in 2022, but Hurts still finished 16th in attempts, despite missing two games. The Eagles should use at least one draft pick to shore up its receiving corps.

3. Safety

The Eagles lost both of their starting safeties, C.J. Gardner-Johnson and Marcus Epps in free agency. Philadelphia signed Terrell Edmunds away from the Pittsburgh Steelers but will likely need depth in case second-year undrafted free agent Reed Blankenship isn’t capable of starting.

Eagles May Also Consider Drafting: Defensive lineman, Running Back
