ESPN has, for some reason, decided to do power rankings for the 2015 NFL season. They had 4 different pundits grade where they think 5 different areas of a team will be in 2015, then added up those grades for an overall grade. The Eagles came in at 74 out of 100 points, just a fraction behind the Detroit Lions. Below is a general summary of their thoughts on each area.

Roster 7.25/10 - It's very young and talent. Almost all key skill players outside of QB on offense are early to mid-20s, they've got a bunch of young pass rushers and a young LB corps.

QB 5.75/10- This was their lowest score looking ahead to 2015. Vick will be 32 this year and we know that the guaranteed money will be pretty much up in his contract after this season. So 3 years into the future the QB situation is certainly a question.

Draft 8/10 - They loved the 2012 draft and Mel Kiper generally likes their draft approach overall.

Front Office 8.25/10 - The highest graded area on the team. They like the Roseman/Reid combo, like how they are aggressive in free agency when they want and like how they lock up their young players.

Coaching 8/10 - They are very high on Reid, but wonder whether he might retire by 2015.
