Linebacker

The middle of the defense for the Saints saw the most injuries last season. So much so that they had to go to the market and sign former-Saint Manti T’eo to come and help fill in for the final games of the season.

They also lost AJ Klein in free agency which was a big loss. Alex Anzalone will come back from missing all last season, so who knows how that will go. The Saints drafted Zack Baun, but he is listed on the depth chart as the backup edge and linebacker.

Therefore, Baun could be being pulled in two different directions. This is still leading to a lack of depth for the linebackers who have had a huge history of injury. The Saints could solve this problem easily with using the Warford savings on a linebacker.

To restate, the New Orleans Saints have one of the best teams in the NFL, but there is no perfect team. Doing an in-depth analysis shows that the Saints do in-fact have some depth problems at these three positions.
