time2rock Posted June 19, 2021 Share Posted June 19, 2021 Brian Baldinger calls Landon Dickerson the 'best offensive lineman' he's seen since Quenton Nelson Josh Lynch June 18, 2021 11:23 am ET NFL analyst Brian Baldinger thinks the Eagles might have gotten a steal and a future All-Pro offensive lineman in Landon Dickerson. During a recent sitdown on NFL Network, the knowledgeable analyst had high praise for the former Crimson Tide star and Philadelphia’s 2021 second-round pick. While breaking down Dickerson’s traits, Baldinger compared him to Quenton Nelson, calling him the best lineman to enter the league since the former Notre Dame star joined Indianapolis. "He was the best offensive lineman I had seen since Quenton Nelson… You look at him against the Elite Players that are now all in the NFL, and he didn’t have a problem.” Dickerson was drafted as a center but has played the right and left guard position, and he’s being projected to be a guy that will finally challenge current guard Isaac Seumalo for the starting spot at left guard. In losing Brandon Brooks and Andre Dillard to season-ending injuries last year, the team kind of fell in a hole when they couldn’t find the production they needed when both were unavailable. The Eagles chose the strategy of drafting a rugged and versatile player like Dickerson, to avoid deja vu all over again. Drafted 37th overall in the 2nd round, Dickerson was already favored by many following his rehab treatment from ACL surgery last December. The rookie already has a mentor and supporter in Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland. If Dickerson can regain his form, stay healthy, and absorb Philadelphia’s system, things could be interesting in the NFC East for years to come. https://theeagleswire.usatoday.com/2021/06/18/brian-baldinger-landon-dickerson-quenton-nelson-best-offensive-lineman/?fbclid=IwAR17v-evC-8cmJOpkBFR2pv6voQJWR_rfIafjc5SVu_tAFt7YU37tn2zQkQ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
