Trent Cole: B+
Trent Cole is a good enough player that you can always count on him to have a good performance, and today had to have him excited at the thought of facing a pair of backup offensive tackles with Levi Brown and former Philadelphia Eagles lineman Jeremy Bridges both on injured reserve. Cole finished with a sack, three tackles, and a tackle for loss in the contest.
Cullen Jenkins: C
I'll need to check out game film to get a further breakdown of Cullen Jenkins' performance, but I didn't hear his name much today and the box score doesn't reflect that he even played: He had zero tackles and zero sacks. But he was part of an Eagles unit that helped hold the Arizona Cardinals to fewer than three yards per carry on 34 rushes.
Fletcher Cox: C
Like Cullen Jenkins, Fletcher Cox didn't do much in the stat sheet, and it's not as if Adam Snyder and Daryn Colledge are a tough pair of offensive guards to line up against. Cox finished with just one tackle and he also briefly left the game to tend to a migraine headache.
Jason Babin: A
Jason Babin was all over the Cardinals' offensive line today, finishing with two sacks, five tackles, and two tackles for a loss. He was going against a rookie offensive tackle but still, his performance was Pro Bowl caliber. The only negative on Babin was a flagrant horsecollar tackle that will probably cause him to be fined sometime this week.
Derek Landri: B+
Derek Landri is a very underrated defensive tackle, as he can get to the quarterback and also stop the run. In today's contest, he finished with two tackles and a big tackle for a loss, helping hold third running back LaRod Stephens-Howling to a ridiculous minus 14 yards on eight rushes.
Brandon Graham: A+
Brandon Graham is buried in the Philadelphia Eagles' depth chart, with Cole and Babin starting and Phillip Hunt also vying for many of the snaps. But he made the most of his limited snaps, coming up with four tackles, three tackles for a loss, and a shared sack.
Phillip Hunt: B-
I thought we might see more of a performance from Phillip Hunt today, as he finished with just one tackle, but he did play limited snaps as well and helped hold the Cardinals' run game to just 99 yards.
Darryl Tapp: A-
I didn't expect Darryl Tapp to make the team at the start of training camp, but he's managed to hold off second round pick Vinny Curry for reps. Today, Tapp had six tackles and a sack.
Cedric Thornton: B
Cedric Thornton won't make or break the Eagles' defensive performance, but he is a solid run stopper and finished with one tackle in the game.
