Roquan Smith has been a flat out monster for the Bears defense this year. He leads the team in a bunch of defensive categories. He has been the defensive player of the week and was probably a snub for the NFC Pro Bowl roster this year.
Smith only has four sacks on the year, but he leads the team with 139 tackles on the year. He also leads the team in 18 tackles for a loss. He also adds in seven passes defended, two interceptions, and one forced fumble. He has played in all 16 games.
The best example the Saints have of Smith would be Demario Davis. Smith is just a middle of the field presence. He is a tackling machine. Alvin Kamara and Emmanuel Sanders are going to need to be aware of him in the middle of the field.
The New Orleans Saints are going to have to be prepared. Even though the Bears are the No. 7 seed, the Saints can’t underestimate their opponent. This will be a fun Super Wild Card Weekend for Saints fans in Brees’ last playoffs.
