Philadelphia Eagles Land 8 Players on Pro Football Network’s Top 100 Players List

The Philadelphia Eagles are loaded with talent as eight players were named to Pro Football Network's Top 100 players list. But is Jalen Hurts ranked too low?

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman has done a masterful job of building a Super Bowl contender once again. Pro Football Network’s Top 100 NFL players list recognizes just how talented Philadelphia’s roster is as eight Eagles were named to this year’s list.

Philadelphia Eagles Have 1 Top-10 Player in the NFL

It’s quite refreshing to see Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson ranked seventh overall, behind only Trent Williams among offensive linemen. Early in his career, Johnson was often dismissed as a top offensive tackle because he lined up on the right side. Yet, Johnson’s numbers speak for themselves, as he has allowed just two sacks in his last four seasons combined, according to Pro Football Focus.

Johnson is accompanied by seven of his teammates on PFN’s Top 100 players list. Jalen Hurts, Jason Kelce, A.J. Brown, and Jordan Mailata join Johnson to represent Philadelphia’s offense on this impressive list. Meanwhile, Haason Reddick, Darius Slay, and James Bradberry hold it down on Philadelphia’s defensive side of the ball.

Brown, Reddick, and Bradberry were all offseason additions made by Roseman in 2022 that clearly worked out during their debut season in Philadelphia. Despite falling short in Super Bowl LVII against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Eagles will look to make another run once again, led by their rising star QB.

As for this list, though, is the recent MVP candidate ranked far too low?

Jalen Hurts Is Being Disrespected Once Again

I’m sorry, but there is absolutely no way that there are 60 players better than Hurts in the NFL. Hurts comes in at No. 61 on PFN’s Top 100 list and the fifth-best quarterback behind Justin Herbert, Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, and Patrick Mahomes. Despite playing arguably the best game of his career in Super Bowl LVII, Hurts apparently didn’t do enough.

In the biggest game of his life, Hurts accounted for 374 total yards and four total touchdowns. He went toe-to-toe with the top player on this list in Mahomes, but Philadelphia’s defense couldn’t get a stop.

It’s especially confusing to see Herbert ranked ahead of Hurts. The same Herbert who blew a 27-0 lead in the Wild Card Round to the Jacksonville Jaguars and managed to score just three points in the second half.

While Allen and Burrow have both played at an elite level, they have failed to go any further than Hurts did in just his second full season as a starting quarterback in the NFL.

Allen hasn’t even made it to the Super Bowl yet, despite being surrounded by plenty of talent in Buffalo. Burrow lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the big game and was responsible for just one touchdown and 266 total yards.
