Ranking NFL Draft edge rushers who could provide immediate contributions to the Eagles

Throw out Dallas Turner because he won't be available, but here are some of the other top edge rushers we'd like to see in a Philadelphia Eagles jersey.

What a difference a week makes. One minute we're tossing around theories about what the Philadelphia Eagles might look like with Haason Reddick and Josh Sweat off the roster. A few days later, Josh Sweat has agreed to a restructure. Kenny Pickett joins the nest thanks to a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Oh, and how could we forget to mention that Devin White, Saquon Barkley, and Bryce Huff have all agreed to terms to join the team?

Howie Roseman has been busy. It's enough to make your head spin, but we believe we kept up with Philly's comings and goings fairly well. Stay tuned. The Birds probably aren't done yet.

Though Howie will continue to work the phones, our focus shifts to the 2024 NFL Draft, and what can we say? Adding an edge rusher (Huff) and seemingly extending another (Sweaty) hasn't diminished our thirst for another.

With that, we turn our attention to the best edge rushers in the coming selection who are not named Dallas Turner as he certainly won't be available when Philly is on the clock. All would provide solid depth for the Eagles. All would be solid day-one contributors.

Honorable mentions: Bralen Trice, Marsahwn Kneeland, and Jonah Elliss

Bralen Trice is an undersized six-foot-three and 245 pounds which at times leads to quiet games. Jonah Elliss has already had two brothers play for the Eagles (Christian and Noah). Marshawn Kneeland plays the run well and brings it in pass-rushing situations.

All make sense as Day 2 targets if Philly looks elsewhere in Round 1. They'd be nice consolation prizes if Philly doesn't land one of the top six edge prospects. Here they are.
