The ten Non-Superstars Who Could Shape the 2022 NFL Season – The Ringer
Jalen Hurts, QB Eagles. There isn’t a tougher QB evaluation within the NFL straight away. Hurts in 2021 was a good starter whose athleticism allowed him to beat obvious limitations within the dropback passing game. But that version of Hurts was also much better than the one we saw during his rookie season in 2020, and leagues higher than his final college season, before which he wasn’t even seen as a legitimate pro prospect. The query, though, is when will his development level off? I consider myself a Hurts centrist. While there are red flags throughout his film—he left a whole lot of big plays on the sector last season on account of poor field vision and spotty accuracy—there’s plenty to love, as well. Even in his ugly playoff debut in Tampa, Hurts made some difficult throws to assist keep the sport competitive. Hurts was given some pre-snap responsibility last season, which suggests he’s picking up Nick Sirianni’s offense just high-quality, however the Eagles did simplify their play-calling to be able to make his life easier after the snap. They ran a whole lot of RPO and option run concepts on early downs—anything to remain out of obvious passing situations that allowed the defense to throw complex looks on the young quarterback. And it mostly worked: Philadelphia quietly ended the season ranked eleventh in offensive DVOA, only one spot behind the high-powered Bills. But when the Eagles are going to contend in 2022—they usually definitely have the talent across the roster—then Hurts may have to play higher when opponents knock him off schedule. Just attacking the center of the sector more often may be enough to raise this offense a tier or two.
Roob’s Observations: Why it’s nearly a lock Hurts will likely be Eagles’ QB in 2023 – NBCSP
1. I understand that the most important narrative across the 2022 season goes to be: “Will Jalen Hurts play well enough to be the Eagles’ quarterback after this season?” That’s not going to vary. But when you consider it, it’s tough to really imagine a scenario where he’s not the Eagles’ QB beyond this yr. To begin with, it’s awfully likely that with Hurts’ tireless work ethic, a second yr in the identical offense for the primary time since highschool and the upgraded weapons he’ll have at his disposal, he’s going to enhance to some extent, make higher decisions and grow to be a more consistent and accurate passer. He’s 23, and he’s all the time shown improvement. Why would that stop? And he already had a measure of success in his first yr as a starter, going 8-7, reducing his turnovers dramatically from his rookie yr, generating 26 total touchdowns and 199 first downs — each among the many top 16 within the league — and becoming the youngest quarterback ever to begin a playoff game for the Eagles. And if Hurts does improve, where are you going to seek out someone higher? Even Howie Roseman’s draft-day wizardry won’t land C.J. Stroud or Bryce Young. Are you going to trade beneficial picks to accumulate a veteran or sign a free agent? The Eagles don’t operate that way. Plus how often do quality veteran QBs even hit the market? Do you actually think Lamar Jackson goes to be available? No way. Is someone like Baker Mayfield or Jimmy Garoppolo really going to be an upgrade? Nah. Now, if Hurts regresses and doesn’t construct on the promise he showed in 2021, there will likely be no contract extension and the Eagles may have no selection but to scramble and go get a quarterback. But I just feel like that’s unlikely. Howie has done every part possible to surround Hurts with players who may help him succeed, he’s got a yr of experience under his belt and I just don’t think a big-time regression goes to occur. It’s possible. But there just aren’t many scenarios where Hurts isn’t the Eagles’ quarterback moving forward.
Eagles Super Bowl contributor broadcasts retirement – BGN
It’s not just like the Eagles’ 2014 draft class was superb (Marcus Smith yr) but, hey, Allen ended up playing essentially the most games for Philly from that crop. (Yes, even with Jordan Matthews returning in 2018 and 2019.) Allen played 423 defensive snaps through the 2017 season, third most of any defensive tackle on the team. He played 23 defensive snaps in Super Bowl LII itself, logging two total tackles. Allen left the Eagles through the 2018 offseason to sign a three-year, $16.5 million cope with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That contract helped the Birds earn a sixth-round compensatory pick within the 2019 NFL Draft, which they packaged to trade up from No. 25 to No. 22 to pick Andre Dillard.
Rating Howie Roseman’s best moves through the 2022 offseason – PhillyVoice
The Eagles essentially traded pick 16 for a first-round pick, a second-round pick, and a third-round pick, while also moving up a spot within the 2022 draft. The Eagles desired to trade for either Russell Wilson or Deshaun Watson this offseason, but those talks never got anywhere because neither Wilson nor Watson desired to be in Philly. The Eagles also clearly didn’t think much of the 2022 quarterback draft class. And so, they pivoted. If Jalen Hurts doesn’t definitively show that he needs to be the team’s long run starter this season, the Eagles have the draft capital to make a splash move for either a veteran quarterback or a robust rookie prospect next offseason. If Hurts proves to be “the guy,” then the Eagles can proceed to accumulate their already strong roster otherwise. Roseman was able to keep up that maneuverability while also adding potential impact players in Jordan Davis and A.J. Brown.
How will these moves impact the Eagles in 2022? – PE.com
March 24: Signed DE Derek Barnett to a two-year contract. The thought up front is to bring the warmth off the sting – and inside, for that matter – with waves of defensive ends and players like Reddick. So, the Eagles are hoping they’ve quality of depth and that’s why having Barnett back is so vital. He’s an especially popular player within the locker room and within the organization for his toughness, his tenacity, and the way in which he brings it on every snap. Whether Barnett starts or not is just not the difficulty – it’s that when he’s on the sector he’s a threat to the quarterback. And with players like Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat and Reddick and a few improving young players like Tarron Jackson and Matt Leo and even rookie Kyron Johnson expected to be employed in the summertime as pass rushers, the Eagles think they’ve the depth to maintain players fresh and chasing down quarterbacks. Barnett returned to the Eagles in situation for each him and the team, and that’s encouraging for the defensive end picture.
Higher or worse? Giants’ cornerbacks – Big Blue View
I appreciate Schoen’s attempt to interchange the lack of James Bradberry, however the cornerback’s departure is just too difficult to substitute. Not only is Bradberry not on the roster, but he signed with the Eagles, making a divisional opponent much stronger on the backend of their defense while effectively withdrawing a top-5 player on the Giants. This forces Adoree’ Jackson to grow to be the de facto primary cornerback and Aaron Robinson right into a somewhat uncertain situation because the number two. I remain high on Robinson as a young ascending player, however it’s unfeasible to assume that he can replicate Bradberry’s impact over the past two seasons. The Giants even have Rodarius Williams coming back from his ACL injury and Darnay Holmes to compete within the slot, also coming back from an injury (ribs). Losing a Pro Bowl talent like Bradberry is just too difficult to beat in a single season with unproven assets and a number of journeymen.
Defining the most important non-quarterback Jenga pieces on the Dallas Cowboys roster – Blogging The Boys
The proven fact that Micah is eligible for this after just his rookie season speaks not only to the impact that he made on the Cowboys last yr but how critical his contributions are. Ultimately Parsons is an arguable jenga piece because unlikely everybody else he is 2 pieces in a single. If the team were to be without him for any time period they might be without their best linebacker and pass rusher. So far the one time that we’ve needed to see the Cowboys play without Parsons was the regular season finale last yr which was hardly a standard game given the circumstances involved for each Dallas and Philadelphia. We obviously don’t need to see what this may seem like in a game of consequence, but generally speaking the Cowboys haven’t fared well when losing players of this level of importance.
Broncos roster review: cornerback Ronald Darby – Mile High Report
Darby together with his age may worry some people as most defensive backs are younger players, so there’s a likelihood Darby does take a step back. At the bottom, I can see Michael Ojemudia and even K’Waun Williams getting the nod over Darby, although I believe it’s unlikely because it is going to take Darby slowing down and Ojemudia or Williams taking a giant leap. Out of those two, I feel Ojemudia has the higher likelihood to steal Darby’s starting spot as he is barely 24 and had a extremely solid rookie yr.
