Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

For more coverage of the scouting combine, check out our storystream.

Monday's workouts at the 2014 NFL Combine featured linebackers and defensive linemen. While the Eagles may not need immediate starters in these areas, depth is very important for the future. Here is a list of the top performers in each group.

Linebackers

The name that stood out most to me here was Kevin Pierre-Louis. I can't say Pierre-Louis is a name I've extremely familiar with. The Boston College LB is projected as a 6th-7th round pick on CBS, but he had a strong showing during Monday's drills.
