2021 NFL Power Rankings: Eagles ranked near the bottom of the league
The Eagles had an encouraging offseason on paper, from drafting their franchise WR1 to bolstering an already strong defensive line. Much of the 2021 season will be spent assessing rookie head coach Nick Sirianni and first-year starter Jalen Hurts.
PFF recently released their power rankings for the 2021 NFL season and they weren’t generous to Philadelphia:
30. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
Super Bowl Win Probability: 0.3%
Highest-Graded Player: ED Brandon Graham (81.5)

Placing the Eagles 3rd-to-last is a little rough, but it’s understood why. They have an unproven starter under center in Jalen Hurts, a myriad of raw receivers, and no real secondary to speak of other than Darius Slay.
Some fans — such as Liberty Line’s own Ryan Conway — are a little more optimistic, however, and expect big things from Philadelphia next season:
