Rookies Ready To Bat It Down - Danta Klaus, PhiladelphiaEagles.com
Bennie Logan and Joe Kruger are seen as key pieces for both the present and future of the Eagles' defensive line. Drafted in the third and seventh round, respectively, each player provides the versatility to play multiple positions and slide all around the front. They also possess high football IQs and can affect the play even when they're not able to get to the quarterback or make a tackle. When watching Logan and Kruger's tape, it's impossible not to notice how often they read the quarterback, get their hands up in passing lanes and deflect or bat down passes.
