EAGLES JENKINS AND COX ON PRO FOOTBALL FOCUS’ TOP 101

25. Malcolm Jenkins
Jenkins, 25, was PFF’s second-highest rated safety last season. Jenkins turned 28 during last season, but was a key contributor for the Eagles playing safety and moving into the slot in the team’s nickel package.

PFF said Jenkins was thrown at 83 times, more than any other safety, but allowed under 500 yards and just 8.9 per reception.

Jenkins was not on the 2014 list.

28. Fletcher Cox
Cox is the Eagles’ best player. I know, I know … these rankings don’t say that. But he is.

PFF was impressed that Cox did as much damage as he did as a two-gapping defensive end in a 3-4, which is impressive. He’ll look more impressive in Jim Schwartz’s 4-3 attacking defense in 2016. “Cox was one of the most troublesome players to block in the entire league, and a true force on the Philadelphia line,” wrote PFF.

Cox was 46th on the list in 2014.
