The defensive linemen and linebackers 'showed up and showed out' in Indianapolis, didn't they? Several hours of in-person viewing and/or rewatching the defensive linemen and linebackers' on-field NFL Combine workouts on NFL Plus have sparked both imagination AND theory. Let's make long stories short. If the Philadelphia Eagles are looking for an edge rusher and/or linebacker in the coming selection meeting, trust and believe that they will have options.

Philly has been busy. They're meeting with future NFL stars, one is the son of an NFL legend. The 40-yard dash, as always, grabbed our attention once the on-field workouts began. Watching these young prospects run through drills excites us, even if we feel some of these drills show us nothing about how well these guys will perform on game days.

Buckle up. With a day of workouts in the books, we grade the 2024 NFL Draft prospects at edge rusher.
