The Philadelphia Eagles desperately need to find defensive talent in the draft.

It’s probably the worst-kept secret in the football world that the Philadelphia Eagles‘ roster lacks game-changing players on both sides of the ball. While the quarterback conundrum is occupying most of everyone’s attention, executive vice president and general manager Howie Roseman needs to keep an eye on a few guys that he can add to the defensive side of the ball.

With ocean-sized holes at all three levels of the defense, it is pertinent that the Philadelphia Eagles find talented prospects to boost this failing defense. As of now, most Eagles fans have identified their favorite players at each position of need, and for good reason. Most of the prospects they fall for are media stars.

With that in mind, we at Inside the Iggles decided to search through the 2021 NFL Draft prospect list and identify three players who may not be media darlings, but have the tools and skillset to be difference-makers for this team moving forward.

Here are three prospects that could help the Eagles’ defense become dominant again.
