5. Delvin Breaux 

Delvin Breaux is good, real good.  The rookie has consistently held his ground through the first six games of the season, despite constantly getting picked on by opposing quarterbacks.

While some may argue the Falcons are the toughest test he’ll face because of Julio Jones, I beg to differ.  Don’t get me wrong — Jones is the best wide receiver he’ll face all year.  But the Colts have a better all-around corps with the likes of speedster T.Y. Hilton, emerging star Donte Moncrief and veteran Andre Johnson.

Let’s not forget who’s throwing to these guys either.  Breaux will be tested all afternoon, and with Keenan Lewis sidelined, the former CFL star will need to bring his A-game on the road as the team’s No. 1 cornerback.  The Colts currently rank No. 13 in passing offense, but Breaux and the Saints better not let those numbers fool them, otherwise Andrew Luck could have a field day.
