Scouts Inc.: Saints' defensive ends
 
By Scouts Inc.'s Matt Williamson

Now that Charles Grant is gone, how will the Saints' defensive ends fare in 2010?

Will Smith remains a fixture at right defensive end. There is no reason to expect anything but another tremendous season from Smith. He is one of the better 4-3 ends in the league and is in the prime of his career.

At one point, Grant was considered to be nearly in Smith’s class. That has not been the case lately, though, and Grant is now in Miami playing in their three-man front. This illustrates how his value has fallen off as an edge rusher.

The Saints were wise to acquire Alex Brown to fill Grant’s shoes. Why the Bears let Brown go is beyond me. He would be an excellent No. 2 defensive end opposite Julius Peppers, but Chicago’s loss is New Orleans’ gain. Now Brown will fill that role opposite Smith. Durable and reliable, Brown will also be playing in better weather and overall conditions conducive to rushing the quarterback. Expect his production to increase in the Big Easy, and he should approach double-digit sacks. Brown is a clear upgrade over the level of play that Grant displayed in 2009, both as a pass-rusher and against the run.

Dont be surprised if Juneya Galette will be seeing a lot of action. That kids motor never stops. You should see him in training camp. He is going to be a hidden gem.

Why the Bears let Brown go is beyond me. But they did, and we have have him.
