When the New Orleans Saints defense lined up for the start of a two-minute drill at practice on Tuesday, the front seven consisted of four rookies, two free agent signees and Cam Jordan.

Dannell Ellerbe and rookies Stephone Anthony and Hau'oli Kikaha were the starting linebackers. The line featured Kevin Williams and Tyeler Davison at tackle, flanked by Bobby Richardson and Jordan at end.

Of the seven, only Jordan was on the Saints roster last season, although end Akiem Hicks will make it two incumbents when he returns from injury. The rest of the group was scattered to various parts unknown. Ellerbe and Williams were playing for the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks, respectively. Anthony, Kikaha, Richardson and Davison were finishing their college careers at Clemson, Washington, Indiana and Fresno State, respectively.

Re: Overhauled front seven will make or break 2015 New Orleans Saints

Akiem Hicks a 43 DE? well there is a twist. Glad he lost those 20 pounds and got down to 320. I really feel for the OT with this guy lined up on his outside shoulder. hehe no help.

Cam om the other end? Sandwiching the DTs?

This is a contain, push and crush. Looking forward to seeing how this all works out over time.

Gap discipline is key!

Henry Cole looks like a young RAY LEWIS . . . hopefully he comes close to his play on the field . . . .

Even average would cut it for me. If that happens and Brees has time to spreed the ball all over the field..it will be very entertaining to watch.

Good thing is, with how the secondary should be improved; we should see an increase in coverage sacks

I'm nervously optimistic. We could blow up the opposing offenses or just blow.
