Last week, we looked at three positions that the Philadelphia Eagles could look at for their first round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

This time, a resurgent and stout Eagles defense is the topic of discussion. There are those who passionately believe that this defense is for real among the NFL’s elite, and others who feel that the unit is overachieving compared in some facets to talent level.

Like before, the projected roster for 2016-17 and onward strictly adheres to only players who would be signed under their current contracts. No extensions, cap casualties, or free agent signings are assumed, though they may be mentioned underneath.

So, where do the Eagles need to go for their first round pick if it were on defense?
