DE JASON BABIN

He insists he's not a one-trick pony, but even those who say he is have to acknowledge that Babin was a difference-maker last season with 18 sacks.

DE TRENT COLE

The most complete lineman on the team, Cole is a relentless fighter against the pass or run. Adding Babin opposite him helped.

DT BRANDON GRAHAM

After two seasons, the 13th pick in 2010 remains a mystery. He had three sacks in 13 games as a rookie but hardly played last season after knee surgery. This year is critical.

DT CULLEN JENKINS

He tailed off after a fast start, but the pass-rushing tackle still can contribute, and his veteran presence is valuable in the locker room.

DT MIKE PATTERSON

He doesn't quite fit the athletic Eagles mold, but Patterson still had a strong season at the heart of the line and expects to be back after offseason brain surgery.

DT ANTONIO DIXON

The Eagles' biggest lineman was a force in 2010, but his 2011 season was cut short by injury. He is the team's best run-stuffer when healthy.

DT DEREK LANDRI

Landri got a shot when Dixon got hurt. He will give everything he has each snap and can make plays in a rotational role.

DE DARRYL TAPP

He is a solid rotational end who doesn't make the highlight reel but often finds himself in the right place at the right time.

DT CEDRIC THORNTON

The young tackle is a developmental prospect. The Eagles like his work ethic.

DE PHILLIP HUNT

A former CFL end, he showed flashes of promise in limited work last year. Can he be more in 2012?

DE MAURICE FOUNTAIN

The Camden native spent part of last season on the practice squad.
