It’s about to get real in the NFL and for the New Orleans Saints, as the countdown to training camp continues.

The extreme lull is coming to its end, and we continue to pan across the team’s 90-man roster to preview the positions. In case you missed our previous entries on the offensive side of the ball, you can be sure to get caught up here:

We have five position groups left to look at, and the next four will focus on the defense. We start with the defensive line, who we can all agree needs to fire on all cylinders in 2016 after two dismal back-to-back seasons that featured poor run defense, bottom of the league sack totals, and a severe lack of overall pressure.

The new blood, from a combination of free agency and the draft, looks to change that. We start with the anchors in the middle.
