Where Do Philadelphia Eagles Rank Among Top NFC East Pass Rushers?

The NFC East is the new black and blue division. If for anything else, because of the beating opposing quarterbacks will take from the best group of pass rushers from any division. Three of the top five leaders in sacks from 2011 came from this division: DeMarcus Ware, Jason Babin and Jason Pierre Paul have all established themselves as elite pass rushers in the NFL.

The Redskins might have the fourth-best collection of pass rushers in the East, but a duo of Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan isn't too shabby.

Where do the Eagles rank in the best pass rushing division? Jason Babin and Trent Cole have to be up there after recording 18 and 12 sacks in 2011.

What about some of the other pass rushers on the Eagles roster?

Brandon Graham has a world of potential but has shown very little to prove his worth in his first two seasons. Phillip Hunt is a raw pass rusher, now in his second season from the CFL. Vinny Curry and Fletcher Cox are rookies in 2012 but should fit in perfectly as pass rushers in the wide-9 scheme. Also, don't forget about Cullen Jenkins. He did rack up 5.5 sacks last season.

Here are five Eagles that will rank in the top 10 in the NFC East in sacks.
