Number Three: Defensive Ends

The New Orleans Saints’ most dominant part of their defense in recent years has been without question their defensive ends. Led by five-time Pro Bowler Cameron Jordan, the unit has been putting on a clinic in recent years.

Cameron Jordan is a five-time Pro Bowler at the position and has put up great numbers since he came to the team as a first-round pick in 2011.

Jordan was dominant last season, totaling 15.5 sacks, a career-best. Jordan has been the front runner of the defensive end group, but there is other great talent on the Saints’ elite roster as well.

Marcus Davenport was a first-round pick in 2018 and is starting to become a very good pass rusher, Trey Hendrickson has been with the team for a few years and is always a reliable tackler, and Mario Edwards Jr has been in the NFL for years always as great depth.
