New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is easily the most indispensible player on the team's roster.

But trying to find the most essential player on the other side of the ball may not be so easy. The Saints are coming off a season in which the defense yielded the most yards in NFL history, so no player truly shined.

However, this offseason the Saints have tried to revamp their defense, bringing in a new defensive coordinator (Rob Ryan), switching to a 3-4 scheme and signing free agents Keenan Lewis and Victor Butler and drafting Kenny Vaccaro.

Those new players will be asked to mix with holdovers like Curtis Lofton, Jabari Greer, Jonathan Vilma, Cameron Jordan, Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins.

But the question remains: Who is the most indispensable defensive player on the Saints' roster?

I thought this was a really interesting question and I'm curious what everyone has to say.

I'd vote no one. No one has proven on our roster to be a game breaker as of yet. There's certainly some interesting young talent here, but as of now, I don't see anyone as being indispensable or irreplaceable. Hopefully Cam Jordan can eventually become that type of guy... but not now, not yet.

Agreed. Let's complete the installment of the 34 Defense and let's get some live bullets and find out what's what...

I believe we're seeing Jordan's best now; I think Big John Jenkins, Kenny Vacarro, and Chase Thomas really will bring something to the defense...

Right now we've got a committment to Curtis Lofton, but I also look forward to a bright Saints future for Kevin Reddick...

I'm going to go with Roman Harper, because he is the only one that we actually lose cap space if we cut.

From what I saw last season Cameron Jordan he was pretty much the only player on defence that improved last year.

The closest we have to indispensable on defense is Morestead, the punter.

Cam Jordan would be my pick at the minute

I wouldn't be upset if Vaccarro turns into that guy over the next couple seasons though

There isn't...
After last year everyone is replaceable. Just can't field an entirely new defense.

I'm also hoping that Reddick becomes a beast at ILB. He seems like he is a natural fit, I also would like to see Wilson on the ILB position. Size will matter on the inside!!
