Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster: The defensive tackles (5)

Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, Milton Williams, Hassan Ridgeway, Marlon Tuipulotu

Featuring two rookies, the defensive tackle group is an intriguing one. We know how disruptive Cox is, but Hargrave came along at the end of last year and showed glimpses of how dangerous a Cox-Hargrave duo can be.

What can make this group special is the progression of the two rookies. Milton Williams is incredibly twitchy for a defensive tackle and despite his size, (or lack thereof) has the ability to rotate in on passing downs and cause havoc. He can be used in all different types of alignments due to his quickness.

If Williams is considered lightning, then Tuipulotu is thunder. The rookie is a bowling ball who has violent hands and is a very capable run stopper. The two draft picks will also benefit from the guidance of two veterans who have had immense success in the NFL.
