The Saints are in dire need of a pass rusher for next season, and this year's NFL draft is loaded with them

Monday, 27 April 2015 17:12 Written by
It’s no secret the Saints need a pass rusher. Too often New Orleans failed to create pressure on quarterbacks last season, and with the secondary improved through free agency, that remains one of the biggest target areas for improvement entering this week’s draft. With two picks in the first round, it’s widely expected New Orleans will address this need during the first day of the draft. If not, it’s almost certain they’ll dive

Key question for Saints to answer: Are they a 3-4 or 4-3 defense? Answer affects draft strategy for defensive tackle

The question here is whether you look at the Saints a 3-4 team or one that plays the majority of its snaps out of a four-man front. By the virtue of playing more nickel than base, New Orleans already spends the majority of its snaps in a four-man front, and some of the base packages headed that direction last season. So, that might change the type of player the Saints covet at defensive

New Orleans Saints draft targets: Linebackers

The label is kind of dubious. The Saints are advertised as a 3-4 defense, but that wasn’t necessarily the case last year. The team spent more than half of its snaps in nickel packages last season, and quite often used 4-3 looks as the so-called base package. Thinking of drafting players for the base package might be an antiquated idea in the pass-happy era of the NFL. But regardless of the view, the
Could the Saints draft Amari Cooper? Wide receiver is a position of need for the team, and the draft is loaded with prospects

One of the big questions for the Saints this season is where they are going to get their offense. A lot of catches walked out the door this offseason when the Saints traded away wide receiver Kenny Stills and tight end Jimmy Graham, meaning someone is going to have to step up and fill the void. New Orleans has Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston at the top of the depth chart at wide

Saints draft targets: A look at a few cornerbacks who could interest New Orleans

. The Saints have revamped their secondary over the last two seasons and have quality starters for the four base positions. At cornerback, if all goes to plan, New Orleans will roll out the imposing duo of Brandon Browner and Keenan Lewis, with safeties Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro providing help over top. But since the majority of the defense is played in nickel packages, which requires a third cornerback to take the
With draft board set, Saints coach Sean Payton, his staff now tackling next crucial part of preparation

There’s pressure. There’s always pressure. It doesn’t really make a difference to Sean Payton that the New Orleans Saints are coming off a 7-9 season and are the midst of reworking their roster. He’s approach the draft the same way as he always has. Added urgency? Maybe to observers, but that feeling isn’t shared inside the Saints’ building. There’s always urgency and pressure and a desire to hit on every pick. It was
