RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Thornton had a big 2014 campaign as part of the teamís starting defensive line. He was opportunistic, picking up three fumble recoveries and returning one for a touchdown. He will start on right side of the teamís defensive line for the third straight season.
Thornton was quietly one of the league's more effective interior defensive linemen last year, at least in terms of run defense. He'll figure prominently in Philadelphia's end rotation this year once again, likely as a starter.

Thornton will have a tough time earning a roster spot in a deep Philadelphia defensive tackle rotation.
