4. Nicholas Morrow, Middle Linebacker
After having a big year with the Bears in 2022, Nicholas Morrow signed a one-year contract with the Eagles. He continued to play well in Philly, finishing the season with 52 solo tackles, three sacks, and one forced fumble, per the Philadelphia Eagles. He was important to the team in stopping the run and could get to the quarterback.
Those stats don't mean much when the overall defense plays as bad as they did in 2023, but Morrow's efforts stopped the bleeding a little bit. If the Eagles can pair him with better outside linebackers to improve the pass defense, Morrow is a solid middle linebacker option for the future.
3. Kyzir White, Linebacker
Kyzir White brought excitement to the city when he signed a one-year deal with Philly in 2022. Howie Roseman is notorious for neglecting the linebacker position (and still is) but bringing this young man in was a great move.
His performance last season - 66 solo tackles, 44 assists, 3 TFLs - helped the Eagles get to the Super Bowl. White played aggressively and tackled hard, qualities the Eagles defense majorly lacked this year. It was a miss on our part to not lock him into a multi-year deal as he went on to be the Cardinals' defensive player of the year.
