Three Eagles Named to PFF's First-Quarter NFL All-Pro Team

With a majority of NFL teams already through 1/4th of their seasons, Pro Football Focus has come out with their All-Pro team for players who have excelled through their first four games.

The Eagles ended up with three representatives on the list: Carson Wentz, Jason Kelce and Brandon Brooks (Jason Peters was an honorable mention). Here's what they had to say about each of the nominated Eagles:


"With nine big-time throws and four turnover-worthy plays through Week 4, Carson Wentz leads all NFL quarterbacks with 100 or more dropbacks this season in passing grade at 86.0. Unfortunately for Wentz and the Eagles, he has an incredible five big-time throws that have fallen incomplete (receiver’s fault) while every other quarterback in the league has combined for just 24. In total, he’s had an NFL-high 8.3% of his passes dropped and 192 air yards dropped (another NFL-high) on the year."


"No surprises here. Jason Kelce is still the best center in football and has been for quite some time. He’s earned top-10 marks in run-blocking grade (73.3) and pass-blocking grade (73.8) through Week 4."


"Brandon Brooks has been his usual dominant self despite coming off a torn Achilles. He currently ranks fifth in run-blocking grade (79.1) and third in pass-blocking grade (86.3) among qualifying guards."

We will have to wait until after Week 8 to see if Peters is able to unseat Anthony Castonzo at left tackle on this All-Pro list, or if any other Eagles will be able to play well enough to earn recognition from PFF.
