Expect to hear some discussion about the Eagles defensive front versus the Ravens.

Offense sells tickets, and well, you know the rest. Here are a handful of guys to watch versus the Ravens. We begin in the trenches.

6. Tarron Jackson, defensive end

In light of Derek Barnett's recent temper tantrum, we have determined it's best to acknowledge that, though he'll make the roster, he's on very thin ice with this current Eagles coaching staff.

Again, Barnett is going to make the team. Tarron Jackson may not, but after making the 53-man roster as a rookie and spending most of his time on the practice squad during his sophomore campaign, it's going to be interesting to see how his coaches value him.

7. Moro Ojomo, defensive tackle

If we put together our own depth charts right now and stacked all seven of the Eagles' defensive tackles, Moro Ojomo might be the sixth, slightly ahead of Noah Elliss and firmly behind Fletcher Cox, Jalen Carter, Jordan Davis, Milton Williams, and Marlon Tuipulotu. That won't earn him a job.

Kentavius Street is listed as a defensive lineman on the Eagles' roster as opposed to being given the designation of defensive end or defensive tackle. Keep an eye on Ojomo. He needs some great showings.

With that, we move along to the linebackers, corners, and safeties.
