Dont’a Hightower, Matt Judon, Kyle Van Noy, Ja’Whaun Bentley, Josh Uche, Ronnie Perkins, Chase Winovich, Anfernee Jennings
The first six names listed above are locks to play a significant role in 2021. While Chase Winovich seems to have been leapfrogged by Ronnie Perkins on the depth chart, he offers too much value as a pass rusher to be left off the roster.
With regard to the final spot, we’re giving Anfernee Jennings the edge right now, but his spot is far from secure. If the 2020 third-rounder doesn’t perform in Week 3, don’t be surprised if he’s replaced by Harvey Langi or Brandon King.
