We can begin analyzing potential Eagles’ prospects with a lot of NCAA game film at our fingertips.

It’s long been a part of the Philadelphia Eagles‘ business model to build its team with certain key positions in mind, one of which being the defensive line’s interior. That theory proved to be true again in 2021 and 2022 as they drafted Milton Williams during the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft and selected Jordan Davis 13th overall one year later in Round 1.

As most of you are aware, Fletcher Cox and Javon Hargrave are both in contract seasons. The Birds could elect to bring one of those guys back, but no one should be shocked if they move on from both.

Marlon Tuipulotu has potential. Philly could make a move during the free agency period, but if the plan winds up being that they address their needs by using draft capital, there will be options during the next selection meeting. Let’s some of them a look.

. . Brandon Dorlus, Oregon. 11. player. 820.

In putting together a top ten list of the NCAA’s best defensive linemen. Brandon Dorlus of the Oregon Ducks barely missed the cut. He deserves an honorable mention though.

He has shown an ability to find his way into the defensive backfield, racking up TFLs regularly and bringing the opposing signal-caller down on occasion as well. Here are ten other prospects that we rank a little higher.
