DT FLETCHER COX, MISSISSIPPI STATE
He's tall, athletic and disruptive, and some think he could be one of the best defensive players in the draft. His game would fit well with the Eagles.
DT DONTARI POE, MEMPHIS
The 346-pound defensive tackle impressed with a stunning 4.98-second 40-yard dash at the combine, but his ability didn't translate into big plays on the field.
DT MICHAEL BROCKERS, LOUISIANA STATE
Brockers is 6-foot-5 and a powerful force up front, but he is raw and needs to improve as a pass rusher.
DT JEREL WORTHY, MICHIGAN STATE
He is another big man who can explode into the backfield, but, like Brockers, he doesn't have the pass-rushing skills the Eagles love.
DE MELVIN INGRAM, SOUTH CAROLINA
The all-American is considered the top pass rusher in the draft. His athleticism and versatility mean he could play end, linebacker, and even some tackle.
DE QUINTON COPLES, NORTH CAROLINA
Listed at 6-6 and 284 pounds, with speed and athleticism, Coples could be a force. But he has been criticized for easing off the gas at times, which could turn off the Eagles.
DE COURTNEY UPSHAW, ALABAMA
Considered a 3-4 outside linebacker by some, Upshaw may find a home as an NFL end because of his ability to get to quarterbacks. He doesn't have a linebacker's coverage skills.
DE NICK PERRY, SOUTHERN CAL
He is another athletic edge rusher who could play end or linebacker. He had 91/2 sacks as a junior as his stock soared.
DE WHITNEY MERCILUS, ILLINOIS
The junior burst onto the scene last season, using his athleticism to notch 16 sacks. But he had just one big year in college.
DE CHANDLER JONES, SYRACUSE
Another explosive pass-rusher, Jones has seen his stock rise late as analysts see great potential.
