Philadelphia Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland said Andre Dillard and Jordan Mailata will compete in training camp to determine the starter at left tackle according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Enquirer.

“They’re going to both be given an opportunity," Stoutland said. "Both players will have to be on, every day,” Dillard, the team's first-round pick in 2019, was unable to pick up the torch from Jason Peters last year while Mailata, a seventh-round pick in 2018 and former Australian rugby star, has only played 15 football games in his entire life. It's a marquee camp battle since the winner will be protecting Jalen Hurts' blindside in the latter's first (and perhaps only) year as Philadelphia's developmental starter.
