With the first four games of the season in the rear-view mirror, Pro Football Focus has created an All-Pro roster according to their grading system. Even with a mediocre start to the season, the Eagles ended up with two players making their list that featured 26 total players.
The best players in the NFL so far in 2018.

The Eagles are represented on offense with Jason Kelce, and they are represented on defense by Fletcher Cox.
Here’s what PFF has to say about Kelce’s start to the season:
“Kelce’s reign atop the center position continues. He was the highest-graded offensive lineman in the entire NFL a season ago and hasn’t had any sort of Super Bowl hangover to speak of.”
PFF also rave’s about Cox’s start to the season:
“Cox is off to the best start of his career, which is saying something given how good he’s been. We collect times a pass-rusher beats an opposing offensive lineman yet the pass is thrown too quickly to record a pressure. Cox’s 11 such blocks defeated are the third-most of any defensive lineman in the NFL.”
If the Eagles start to go on a run, more names will likely end up on PFF’s mid-season All-Pro team. But in order for a run to get started, the Eagles Offensive Line and Deffesnive Backs need to start picking up the slack.
