New Orleans Saints will likely avoid defensive tackle in draft

As we continue to analyze this year’s NFL draft, it looks like the New Orleans Saints will be avoiding the defensive tackle position…at least through the early rounds. The interior of the Saints’ defensive line was a strength this past year, and with Cam Jordan continuing to move towards his role as a more traditional 3-4 defensive end there is little need to draft a playmaker...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Defensive Line

This has been on the backburner recently with the flurry of activity, but needs for the roster still exist so let's get back to it. The defensive line is probably in better shape than almost any other position on the roster. Hard to believe after it was so poor in2012 that it's become one of the biggest strengths on the team. That said, depth and young talent is always something...

No moves before Saints' bonus practice

The New Orleans Saints held a bonus practice on Tuesday that was closed to the media and didn’t require an injury report. So there were no updates available from the team. However, it’s worth noting that the Saints didn’t make any official transactions on Tuesday – which I take as a sign that rookie defensive end Glenn Foster might not need to be placed on injured reserve...

Saints Nation: Saints Move to 3-0, Drop Cardinals 31-7

Now that's what I like to see! Not to say that there wasn't some struggles involved in this win, but a 31-7 drubbing is about as much as you could ask for as the Saints move to 3-0, comfortably atop the NFC South. The story of these first three weeks continues to be the shocking and incredibly unexpected performance by the defense. For the third straight week the Saints have...

Saints Nation: Saints Will Have Luxury of a Rotation on Defensive Line Against the Cardinals

The Saints carry seven defensive linemen on their 53 man roster and last week the snaps went almost entirely to three players: Akiem Hicks, John Jenkins and Cam Jordan. That wasn't by design, mind you, because when Tom Johnson went down early in the first quarter, that made him the fourth injured lineman out of seven on the roster. Missing time along with Johnson are Brodrick...

New Orleans Saints Week 2 injury report: Walker, Bunkley, Abdul-Quddus OUT

It's been no secret that the New Orleans Saints have not been able to stay healthy in 2013, especially on the defensive side of the ball.  Even with all the injuries incurred on defense, the Saints managed three-sacks and an interception of Matt Ryan in Week 1 en route to a 23-17 victory against the Atlanta Falcons.The Saints had the misfortune of losing nose-tackle Brodrick...

Saints' depleted D-line aims to keep up pressure

As the Saints prepare to head to Tampa Bay this Sunday, they're eager to see if the opening week success of their four-man pass rush becomes a two-week trend. One problem is that their numbers are down because of injuries to several linemen, meaning a shorter rotation of players will have more snaps in what could also be energy-sapping conditions in Florida. Nose tackle Brodrick...

NFC South Week 1 Recap: Saints up, Bucs, Falcons down

New Orleans Saints 23 Atlanta Falcons 17Rob Ryan may have just needed a change of scenery as his injury depleted defense held the high powered Falcons to only 17 points.  New Orleans managed to force two fumbles and recover one and also had a key Roman Harper interception in the end zone with the Falcons threatening at 4th and goal from inside the 5-yard line with under a minute...

Saints Nation: Training Camp Position Battle Preview - Nose Tackles

I've said this enough times to assuredly make all of you that read this blog with any regularity sick, but a 3-4 defense works best with an anchor nose space eater. If you want to do it right, you have to have that guy. With that in mind, the Saints drafted John Jenkins who I firmly believe is the future of defense at that position. Hopefully he can develop into an elite player...
