4. Moro Ojomo
The Eagles’ defense has some things to figure out still, but they’ve played admirably despite the numerous injuries they’re dealing with on that side of the ball. Philadelphia’s play in the trenches, in particular, has been vital to keeping this unit in games while the secondary is hampered.
The team’s youth has taken center stage over the first two games as Jordan Davis and Jalen Carter look like a dynamic duo in the making. This pair has combined for 2.5 sacks, 4 tackles for loss, 2 forced fumbles and 4 QB hits to begin the year, using their tantalizing blend of size and athleticism to regularly makes plays.
With Carter, Davis, Fletcher Cox and Milton Williams forming an intimidating foursome, this team’s defensive tackle rotation is pretty set. And that’ll leave rookie Moro Ojomo on the outside looking in most weeks.
Ojomo is buried on the depth chart behind that quartet, plus Marlon Tuipulotu and Kentavius Street. There’s simply no opportunity here right now for the seventh-round pick.
Of course, an injury could suddenly given the former Texas Longhorn standout a chance to make his NFL debut. In Week 3, though, he can only continue to wait for that opportunity.
