NFL Draft: Breaking Down Which Pass-Rushers Would Fit on Philadelphia Eagles

The 2013 draft has a slew of potential pass-rushers that can make an immediate impact at the NFL level. Some of these players have a storied history of production at the collegiate game, while the success of others will be based more on potential.

It’s difficult to know which of these players can fit in which defense. Bjoern Werner will very likely be a stellar pass-rusher, but is he a 4-3 end or a 3-4 outside linebacker? Is there really a difference and should teams be worried about that when drafting these prospects?

Obviously teams should take note of the difference between the two, especially those like the Philadelphia Eagles looking to transition from a 4-3 to a 3-4. I broke down the following players, each of whom is a pass-rushing 4-3 end or 3-4 outside linebacker. In a later article, I’ll preview the defensive/nose tackles to see which ones would fit in the Eagles’ defense.
