For a decade with a Super Bowl Championship, it's almost assured Eagles players will make the list.

On the flip side, the team has dealt with many injuries and rotating players as the franchise has had three different head coaches during that time period.

As PFF says, "this list isn’t an evaluation of talent, but rather of production, efficiency and performance over a specific time period" and does include the postseason.

The Eagles took the time during free agency to address the defensive side of the ball.

The process left the offensive team-building to the draft, where the Eagles came away with just K'Von Wallace and three developmental players in the front seven.

The process would seem to have left the Eagles reliant on these moves prior to the draft - and it wouldn't be a surprise to see all seven of those players on the field at the same time - six of them frequently.

In his first three seasons with the Eagles, Barnett has dealt with some injuries and has yet to have the huge stat line that many thought he would.

Across 35 games, the end has totaled 14 sacks, 67 tackles, 49 QB hits, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Of course, he also added a forced fumble and sack in the 2017 NFC Championship game and the key fumble recovery in Super Bowl LII.
