1. Philadelphia Eagles

Was there really any doubt? No one likes the Eagles, but there's no questioning their talent. Not only did they make the Super Bowl last season, but they made several moves to bring in some elite young talent to potentially keep their championship hopes going for a very long time. However, things could shift in the NFC East considering some of the talent they lost on the defensive side of the ball.

Not only did the Eagles lose C.J Gardner-Johnson, but they lost T.J Edwards as well. Alongside this, Darius Slay reportedly wanted out at one point. While it seems as if this issue has been resolved, it's still something to monitor during the 2023 season. Despite this, the Eagles still have a ridiculously talented defense that just got some incredible talent in the draft.

The Eagles had the best pass-rushing unit in the NFL last season and added Jalen Carter, arguably the best player in this year's draft class, and Nolan Smith, an interesting player with tons of upside as an athlete. Considering that they already have Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, Jordan Davis, Hasson Reddick, and Josh Sweat, this team is going to be terrifying to play.

There are few weaknesses on this Eagles team, and any time it seems like a weakness pops up, it's plugged by someone drafted or brought in by Howie Roseman. The job he's done since taking the reigns as GM is incredible and deserves praise.
