Where the Eagles rank

0 comments

Our first Daily News rankings won't come out until closer to training camp, but ESPN.com has released its NFL rankings for the offseason and the draft.

The Eagles check in at No. 13 overall, seven spots behind Dallas among NFC East teams. The Birds are also seventh in the NFC behind New Orleans, Minnesota, Dallas, Green Bay, Atlanta and Arizona.

Writes John Clayton, "The Eagles picked a tough time for Kevin Kolb to take over as quarterback. Their schedule features 11 top-level QBs, including two games against Donovan McNabb."

Clayton had the Eagles lowest of the four voters, at No. 18. Jeff Chadiha had the Eagles at No. 11. 

The Eagles ended the regular season at No. 7 overall last year. The drop of six spots equaled the Steelers for the largest fall.

Along with Dallas at No. 5, the Giants are ranked 17th and Washington is ranked 23rd, with the notation that adding Donovan McNabb "legitimizes" the Redskins and could make them playoff contenders.

The defending champion Saints are No. 1 overall, followed by Indianapolis, Minnesota, San Diego and Dallas. The Vikings' spot would presumably change if Brett Favre does not play.
