Former NFL scout ranks Nick Foles ahead of Dak Prescott

... and Eli Manning too.

Eagles NFL

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.
