2013 Offensive Line Rankings - Saints #15



Rotoworld link

quote:

15. New Orleans Saints (4)

2012 Run Block Rankings: 5, 17
2012 Pass Block Rankings: 12, 7

LT: Charles Brown*
LG: Ben Grubbs
C: Brian De La Puente
RG: Jahri Evans
RT: Zach Strief
Super Sub: OT Terron Armstead

Overview: The Saints believe in building their line from the inside out, stacking the interior with plus guard and center play and willing to field replacement-level talents at tackle. Grubbs, four-time All-Pro Evans, and UDFA steal De La Puente are the linchpins of New Orleans' trench unit. Strief is a former seventh-round pick out of Northwestern. Brown was a 2010 second-rounder but has been incredibly fragile in the NFL, battling back, hip, hamstring, and knee injuries over his first three seasons. He'll be pushed by raw but athletically freakish third-round rookie Armstead. While New Orleans' lack of left tackle clarity lowers its 2013 projection, this will likely be a quality O-Line. Drew Brees' lightning-quick decision making and delivery mask exterior protection flaws.


I actually think this is a bit low, but can understand why we are put here. Had Bushrod stayed (which I wasn't for) we'd prob be in the top 10.

Looks about right. A lot of uncertainty at the T positions. I think it works out, but I'm a bit of a homer.

We were ranked 4th last year if that means anything to anybody.

They gave mad props to the interior of the line and with the possibility of two new OT's it seems about right.

Our O-Line is good because of #9! we cant keep expecting to plug in any T's and expect to be a great line. We keep Nicks and we are top 5!

Grubbs played really well last year. And his contract is not abnormally stupid.

Contract may have been crazy, but if you think Grubbs is = to Nicks you are just blind. It was a great aquisition but to say Grubbs is better or = to Nicks is stupid!
