5. Hau’oli Kikaha

The Saints needed to add pressure to opposing quarterbacks this year and made the right decision selecting edge rusher Hau’oli Kikaha out of Washington.
He’s racked up 41 tackles, four sacks, and three forced fumbles. He is ranked in the top 20 in pass rush productivity, top 10 in run stop percentage, and top 10 in tackling efficiency among 4-3 linebackers in the NFL.
If there is one trait that Kikaha embodies it is relentlessness. He is always giving the extra effort on the field and inspires the defense to play harder.
