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.
