Is there a position grouping on the Philadelphia Eagles roster with more question marks than the offensive line?

With both Jasons, Peters and Kelce, flirting with retirement and no surefire long-term answer in place at left guard, Howie Roseman will all but certainly be looking to restock the team’s cupboards with big uglies in the trenches, much like the team did in 2017 by selecting back-to-back cornerbacks in Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas.

But which offensive line position should the Eagles target? Should they target a tackle? A guard? There’s no way the team could pick a center in the first round, right?

Well, why not split the different and grab a player who could play both inside and out?

After starting out his career at right guard, Cody Ford split his final two seasons at Oklahoma between left guard in 2017, and right tackle in 2018, and helped to block for two straight Heisman Trophy winners.

Talk about the best of both worlds.

Whether opening up holes for Rodney Anderson on the interior, or keeping Kyler Murray upright on one of his of oh so memorable outside-the-pocket runs, Ford found ways to impact a game no matter where he was tasked with playing, and seldom showed up negatively on either quarterbacks tape; a great sign for an offensive lineman.

Though some will argue whether Ford projects better as a guard or as a tackle, it’s clear the Philadelphia Eagles could use help at either position and would happily accept his addition at whatever position he becomes a day one starter at.
