Good news: Philadelphia Eagles owner made a huge statement regarding the coaching staffs…

Do you recall the Philadelphia Eagles draft class of 2017? Did those guys really get spoilt at a young age?

They stepped upon a roster that would win a Super Bowl right away. Yes, friends—because he was a

practice squad member, Donnell Pumphrey has a Super Bowl ring. There is only one issue. There has

never been an exact science to the NFL Draft.

Pumphrey and the eight players selected in that year’s selection meeting started to fall off the roster one

by one. On November 24, 2023, Derek Barnett, the last of them, was waived.

That does occur occasionally. At times in the subsequent drafts, Philly has struck gold. I can think of

DeVonta Smith, Jalen Hurts, and Landon Dickerson. Philadelphia has also failed. For proof, look no

farther than Jalen Reagor.

How’s the budding artist doing? How do we perceive them?

There are some fresh draftees that we like. I can think of Quinyon Mitchell and Cooper DeJean. In April

of 2023, the Birds selected Jalen Carter, Sydney Brown, and Kelee Ringo, seemingly doing themselves a

favor. Examining a roster with a good balance of young, talented players and established stars makes for

an enjoyable experience.

Howie Roseman fulfilled his duties. Now is the time for the Birds’ coaching staff to step up. It’s finished.

The challenge of helping young Eagles reach their potential falls squarely on the shoulders of Philly’s coaching staff.

As previously said, the NFL Draft is not a precise science. Actually, it’s getting more and more like a

crapshoot. Some wins for you. Some are lost. Thankfully, Philly has been winning more lately.

There is a good, youthful foundation to work with. The key to their development will be appropriate

coaching. That’s the preferable route to success because it can be costly to keep signing talented guys to

cover up the fact that they can’t develop into players.

How is Philadelphia doing in that regard, then? We appreciate you taking the time to inquire.

A ranking of every NFL team was recently revealed by ESPN Plus. It consists of their theoretical

assessment of how well-rounded each franchise’s pool of talented players under 25 is.

With training camp approaching, the Philadelphia Eagles, who finished 13th in the same category the

previous season, were ranked 29th this time around. Because they are all 25 years old, DeVonta Smith,

Landon Dickerson, Cam Jurgens, and Reed Blankenship were not taken into account when compiling

this list.

Aaron Schatz wrote the original. His narrative is restricted access. We won’t include any straight quotes

here because of this, but these are a few of the standouts:

The majority of Philly’s standout players are on defense.

One blue-chip player highlighted is Jalen Carter.

Jordan Davis still hasn’t reached his full potential.

He continues by mentioning Mitchell, DeJean, Brown, Ringo, and Eli Ricks. The names seem

appropriate on paper. Can they do well in the face of the impending pressure? The key will be coaching.

Here again, Howie Roseman has fulfilled his duties. If things go crazy again, it will be difficult to hold

him accountable.

In case you were wondering, the New Orleans Saints (30), Las Vegas Raiders (31), and Miami Dolphins

were the only clubs to finish beneath the Eagles in ESPN’s list. The following were the top ten:

1. Houston Texans

2. Detroit Lions

3. Baltimore Ravens

4. Atlanta Falcons

5. Chicago Bears

6. Arizona Cardinals

7. Jacksonville Jaguars

8. Los Angeles Rams

9. Green Bay Packers

10. Seattle Seahawks

Just looking at that list brings to mind two ideas. Philadelphia must keep encouraging a good mix of

established veterans and up-and-coming talent. All things considered, this is one of the more

outstanding NFC rosters.
