OT - PHI
Week 6 Outlook
Philadelphia Eagles starting LT Andre Dillard suffered a biceps injury in practice on Thursday, and tests revealed that he tore his biceps and will require surgery. He is out for the remainder fo the season.
The Eagles have already lost starting G Brandon Brooks for the season, so this is a massive blow for the Eagles, in particular, Carson Wentz and Miles Sanders. With Dillard out, the Eagles will turn back to their longtime LT Jason Peters to protect Carson Wentz's blindside. Those wanting to draft Sanders and Wentz may need to consider the implications of losing two starting offensive lineman before selecting them on draft night.
The Philadelphia Eagles have selected OL Andre Dillard with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Baltimore Ravens.
The Washington State product slips to the 22nd pick here. He was coveted by the Texans at 23, which is what prompted the Eagles to trade up and get their guy. Dillard earned PFF College's highest pass blocking grade as a senior last season.
