Number Three: Offensive Line

The Saints have been known to have one of the better offensive lines in the entire NFL. A solid group made up of Terron Armstead, Andrus Peat, Erik McCoy, Larry Warford, and Ryan Ramczyk only allowed a total of 27 sacks.

Three guys on the 2019 offensive line were selected to the Pro Bowl (Armstead, Peat, Warford) and one other was selected to the AP NFL All-Pro First Team (Ryan Ramczyk).

The Saints have to address the offensive line position this offseason due to expiring deals and the need for reliable depth. Andrus Peat is able to play both tackle and guard and made two Pro Bowls over his tenure in New Orleans.

Peat will likely be paid as a top ten lineman this offseason despite his Pro Football Focus grade of just 49.7. The Saints will likely let him walk and should pursue some other free-agent options such as Brandon Scherff, Ereck Flowers, or B.J. Finney to take his spot.

The Saints also need to address some depth at the tackle position.

George Fant from Seattle would be a nice fit and has always been a consistent player. Offensive line is not an immediate must, but looking toward the future not addressing it now could cause issues later.
