2021 NFL Draft: Forward-thinking prospect fits for all 32 NFL teams - PFF
Philadelphia Eagles: IOL Landon Dickerson. Philadelphia’s offensive line was hit hard last season, with 11 different offensive linemen playing at least 50 snaps for the team. The one man who remained in place throughout the year was center Jason Kelce, but he will enter the 2021 season at 33 years of age, with a real possibility that his best football is behind him after earning pass-blocking grades below 70.0 in each of the past two years. Dickerson doesn’t necessarily ease any durability concerns, considering he will be coming off a torn ACL in the SEC championship game. However, he does bring the quintessential offensive-lineman mentality to go along with the strength and size to impose his will on opposing defensive lines. Dickerson played all over the offensive line at Alabama and could theoretically fit in anywhere on the Eagles’ interior, potentially serving as a long-term replacement for Kelce or Isaac Seumalo. Dickerson mentioned that he has spoken to Philadelphia in a recent interview.

Eagles announce jersey number changes for Jalen Hurts and others - BGN
The big news here, obviously, is Hurts changing from No. 2 to No. 1. I’ve seen some lamenting this change since they already own his No. 2. My take is that just makes you look cooler if he succeeds. You were in on the ground floor! Seriously, though, I like the change for Hurts. Didn’t love No. 2. No. 1 is much cooler for him, especially after he wore it during his most successful college season at Oklahoma. No. 1 for Hurts is a Big Winner Energy move. No. 1 for QB1.

Fits for the Philadelphia Eagles at pick No. 12 in the 2021 NFL draft - ESPN
Kwity Paye, DE, Michigan. Paye (6-foot-4, 272 pounds) ran a 4.52-second 40-yard dash at Michigan’s pro day and benched 225 pounds 36 times, affirming the standout strength and quickness he has shown on the field. Teams will have to square that with his relatively modest production (11.5 sacks in 28 career games). The Eagles need to bolster their edge rush, especially with Brandon Graham, 32, in the twilight of his career. Perhaps they can go with a fellow Michigan alum and team captain in Paye to serve as Graham’s eventual replacement.
