Write the names of these defensive linemen and linebackers on your draft board.

The Eagles never invest early draft capital in linebackers, but let's mention two anyway. Here's some info on some stars along the defensive line as well.

8. EDGE-Defensive End - Dallas Turner

Dallas Turner is someone built in the Haason Reddick/Nolan Smith mold. He's going to be a great NFL player, but the questions are about whether Philly could get their hands on him in Round 1. Projected round: 1st

9. EDGE-Defensive end - Chop Robinson

The Eagles don't seem to be interested in edge rushers from Penn State. Maybe they're scarred by the Shareef Miller experiment, but if they change their minds, Chop Robinson is a DUDE!

He can play in the 4-3 or the 3-4 defensive scheme. Projected round: 1st

10. Interior Defensive Lineman - Ruke Orhorhoro

This is a manchild. The six-foot-four, 295-pound Ruke Orhorhoro racks up tackles, collects sacks, and knocks down passes at the line of scrimmage. What else could someone ask for? Projected round: 1st

11. Interior Defensive Lineman - T'Vondre Sweat

This six-foot-four, 340-pound monster has played his best during the Longhorns' toughest competition. Watch his games versus Alabama and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Throw this guy into a defensive tackle rotation that already includes Jordan Davis and Jalen Carter, and opposing offenses may never run the ball successfully on the Eagles again. Projected round: Late 1st/Early 2nd

12. Linebacker - Jason Dumas-Johnson/Smael Mondon Jr.

Yes, we dropped a couple of Georgia Bulldogs into the discussion. Why the heck not? The only thing here is this. If Philly wants either of these guys, they'll have to use early draft capital which is something they never do. Projected rounds: 2nd or 3rd

13. Linebacker- Jeremiah Trotter Jr.

Nepotism won't factor into the Eagles' draft strategy, but you have to admit that seeing the name Trotter on the back of someone's jersey will make all of us very happy. Again... Philly will have to uncharacteristically use some early capital to land him though. Projected round: 2nd
