Re: PFF- All Preseason team

Though he wasn't listed as a starter, TE Josh Hill made top 5 Overall for Tight Ends...

Yes, but too much of the time the 2 LBs were our starting ILBs who cannot stop the run nor cover well.

2. Linebackers Other Than Junior Galette

Galette may have been a pleasant surprise for the team last season, but the linebacking unit is the weak link of the defense. The team could use another pass rusher to complement Jordan and Galette. There was hope that Victor Butler could fill this role, but he has struggled with injuries and didn’t survive the first round of cuts. Parys Haralson was solid on the outside last season, but didn’t provide much as a pass rusher.

The play of the inside linebackers is equally concerning. Curtis Lofton struggled with consistency, although he did enjoy a solid postseason. At the other ILB spot, David Hawthorne has not matched the promise from his days in Seattle, most noticeably as a run defender, where he was strong in the past but registered a negative grade for the year, including a -7.0 in the playoffs.

Since the Saints chose not to address the linebacker position until Day 3 of the Draft, they will likely be relying on internal help from this same group. Even slight improvements from the LB unit could make a big difference for the Saints’ defense this season.
