2014 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jun-23-2014 by Kimra Schleicher

Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan took a defense that ranked near the bottom in total defense, rushing yards allowed and second-worst in passing yards allowed last season and turned them into an excellent tiered defensive unit in 2013. The Saints were fourth in total defense and points allowed. So what did the Saints do for an encore this past spring? They added Jairus Byrd from Buffalo and he is considered one of the top safeties in the game. They also brought in cornerback Champ Bailey, retained safety Rafael Bush and outside linebacker Parys Haralson and will have safety Kenny Vaccaro healthy again for the upcoming season. Most experts have the Saints' defense ranked overall somewhere in the 10 to 12 range. If you are looking for an aggressive defense and prefer to wait until the later rounds, the Saints are an option. With Ryan calling the shots, it wouldn't surprise me if they finish well above their initial rankings.
