Spagnuolo - Odd Man Out

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The front four will be key. The turn overs will come back if we control the line of scrimage. Good pressure up front leaves the back 7 free to make plays. No more extra effort providing run support from corners ...

No more extra effort providing run support from corners and safeties.
Those guys were working overtime in run support.
No wonder they were a step slow in coverage all the time.
Jordan should be better. Smith CAN be better. Ellis needs to be better.
Rogers, Franklin, Taylor: somebody please be better.
A little interior help would do wonders for both Smith and Jordan on the outside.

Luckily the DT class is by far the best/widest class out of all of the positions in the upcoming draft, so if the Saints have any of their picks come draft day - I think they can find good pass rushing DTs that way (f.e. Derek Wolfe).

Jason Jones would be a nice FA addition to the front 4, because he could line up as a DT or a DE depending on the situation. But I doubt the Saints can afford to sign him if there is even a hint of competition over his signature. Maybe cutting Ellis in favor of signing Jones would be the move they need?!

I firmly believe that Spags will be able to get much more production out of the existing players than GW ever did, and that is why I'm confident the defense will improve from last year even without major upgrades.

Will Smith - solid veteran
Jonathan Vilma - solid to above average when healthy
Martez Wilson - 3rd round pick that has flashed very good upside

There's plenty of talent here. He's not inheriting a bunch of losers and asked to perform a miracle. Also you don't have to spend big money to add quality free agents... we also have some draft picks in this upcoming draft too.
IMHO you have Jabrari Greer and Patrick Robinson reversed. Jabrari Greer is underrated.

Don't forget about Johnny Patrick; I expect to see his talent emerge with the guidance of Flajole...

Average|Solid|Above Average

Greer definitely is underrated around the league and the better player of the two right now.

Maybe they're giving Spags the draft to pick the players that he wants to fill the holes that he thinks are in desperate need of filling. Our defense will be fine.
