Saints have 20th ranked roster per ESPN

quote:

Biggest strength: Quarterback Drew Brees now has five 5,000-yard passing seasons, more than every other quarterback in NFL history ... combined. He completed 73.5 percent of his passes when he wasn't pressured last season. Biggest weakness: Cornerback Delvin Breaux came back down to Earth in his second NFL season. He missed 10 games to injury and struggled when he was on the field. For his career, Breaux has allowed 12 touchdowns and a passer rating of 98.1 when targeted. By the numbers: Pass-rusher Cameron Jordan had 79 pressures in 2016, up nine from his total in 2015. He also batted down four passes at the line and missed only four tackles.


Looking at some of the rosters ahead of us, the only ones I can't even comprehend are the Titans at 3, chargers at 8 and Chicago at 18. It also doesn't make sense that Rankins and Breaux are graded solo when they both had such limited reps last year

I think Delvin Breaux just had a bad season. He's a high quality player. Also, Sheldon Rankins should make a jump in year 2.

Can you post Denver's? The offense will likely look putrid.

He was never 100% healthy. This year should be much different...assuming he's completely healthy.

He had a good year in 2015, & was playing like a #1 CB before his injury in 2016.

Agree on Rankins. He had good pass rushing numbers, but his run defense is what makes his score so low. He'll get better at run defense eventually. Hopefully it's this year. Coming back from a broken leg didn't help him any.

They claimed that rankings are based off a players career. That explains why Rankins and Breaux are lower than expected.

Which is weird because each player's grades are from last season only. So yes DB and Rankins both were given bad grades last year.

So Denver has 2 starters with a higher score than Von Miller...but still have Miller as their best starter.


And if Delvin Breaux is our worst starter, we are a damn good team.

That's ESPN for you. I guess they don't remember writing the articles about Breaux being practically an elite corner his rookie year. There's no way in hell that's his grade for his entire career, bc he was rated quite highly by PFF his rookie year.

I agree with almost all of those, but Bradley Roby? 58.9?

I can't see Donald Stevenson playing left tackle. He sucks. Him and Ty Sambrailo are such garbage. I wish Denver would cut both and be done with it.

Yea that is just not true. All this is is last years PFF ratings stolen for an ESPN article. It is literally unbelievable what is being passed off as sports journalism these days.

I'm surprised we kept him. He's been garbage. I'd rather the ghost of Ryan Clady in that spot. Anyone else really. Can't get worse.

So Brees is listed as our best starter but Cam Jordan is graded higher. Doesn't really make sense but it's ESPN so I guess you just gotta get used to crap like this
