With all the focus on the 2014 NFL Draft it seems that we may have forgotten that the Philadelphia Eagles still have a good defense. It may not be a lights-out defense but they are good. And they were getting better at the end of last season. Philadelphia Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans has a little age on him but he was the anchor of their squad.
In a recent article at CSNPhilly.com Ryans talked about the defense and his vision for them getting better. With the addition of New Orleans Saints safety Malcom Jenkins he feels pretty upbeat about the direction they are heading.
In the offseason you knew they’d make some changes. I feel like we got another good safety in Jenkins. … He’s a vocal guy and he’s a playmaker.
With the addition of Jenkins the Eagles have improved their defense. Next season looks promising now. So hopefully they can add a pass rusher or a shut-down cornerback in the draft. That would go a long way in solidifying the Eagles’ defense this season.
