The Philadelphia Eagles rush the passer better than any team in the NFL outside of Chicago and for that distinction to continue, the Birds must get production out of the fourth defensive end spot. Brandon Graham and Derek Barnett are the starters. Fletcher Cox and Malik Jackson are monsters in the middle and will provide there own terror and chaos from the interior.

With Jim Schwarts looking to rotate on the outside, Vinny Curry will assume the third defensive spot, and focus on being a dominant run-stuffer. Last season the Eagles had Michael Bennett and Chris Long to play that special role of dominant edge-rusher.

On Tuesday, head coach Doug Pederson confirmed that Josh Sweat, Daeshon Hall, and Shareef Miller are competing for the 4th defensive end spot.

Sweat is the big name and the guy Eagles coaches and brass had hoped would assume the role. Shareef Miller is the team’s fourth-round pick and a player that has shown flashes at times but could use a year to develop and get stronger.

The guy causing the most ruckus this preseason has been Daeshon Hall and the former Carolina Panthers third-round pick is making it hard for the Eagles to not have him on the 53 man roster. This preseason, Hall has 3 sacks, 4 TFLs, 8 QB hits and 2 forced fumbles in three games, but will the Eagles choose him over the Sweat, the guy Roseman drafted and the player with the rawest potential.
