New Orleans Saints: Ranking the five best linebackers in team history
While not always the case in recent memory, the New Orleans Saints have been blessed in the past with exceptional talent at the linebacker position.
The New Orleans Saints will have the chance to continue their linebacking dominance in the 2020 NFL Draft, but they must be ready to select a star because that’s what it’s going to take to compete on this elite roster.
Things look to be on the up-and-up, however; Demario Davis is widely recognized in the NFL world as a top-tier defensive chief, and multiple mocks are predicting one of two promising young linebackers, LSU’s Patrick Queen and Oklahoma’s Kenneth Murray, to be available once the Saints’ turn to pick comes around.
Will all the draft buzz swirling around the offensive prospects, defensive talents like Queen and Murray are oft overlooked.
If the two live up to their potential, they could be superstars for years to come. And if one of them happens to join the Saints, they would be adding to an already storied linebacker lineage in the Big Easy.
In celebration of a possible re-ignition of the Saints’ linebacking core, let’s have a look at the five best men to play the position in team history.
