... and Eli Manning too.

Quarterback Nick Foles (9) will lead the Eagles against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Sunday night. Meanwhile, the city is at fever pitch as the clock ticks down to kickoff.

According to former NFL scout (Redskins 2001-2007, Eagles 2008-2013) and current ESPN analyst Louis Riddick, the Philadelphia Eagles have the best and third-best quarterbacks in the NFC East.

Well, sort of. Here is how Riddick ranked the NFC East's quarterbacks heading into the 2018 season (h/t Tommy):

Riddick is operating on the premise that Prescott, paired with Jason Garrett, isn't as good as Foles paired with Doug Pederson, which is really more of a shot at Garrett than Prescott.

Meanwhile, Eli Manning was essentially an afterthought in Riddick's rankings.

Here is who I would take at all the rest of the offensive positions in the NFC East if I were building a team:

QB: Carson Wentz, Eagles
RB: Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys
WR: Odell Beckham Jr., Giants
WR: Alshon Jeffery, Eagles
Slot: Nelson Agholor, Eagles
TE: Zach Ertz, Eagles
LT: Trent Williams, Redskins
LG: Zack Martin, Cowboys (technically, he plays RG, but shut up)
C: Jason Kelce, Eagles
RG: Brandon Brooks, Eagles 
RT: Lane Johnson, Eagles

We'll dive a little deeper on NFC East rankings next week.
