4. New Orleans Saints

» Saints' 2016 draft class
The sheer quality of their two top defensive draft picks combined with the needs they filled help land the Saints on this list. I know there are arguments about whether or not Sheldon Rankins deserves to be compared to Aaron Donald as a smaller interior player who can produce big results, but I believe it is worth a discussion.

The Saints also added Vonn Bell at safety and his coverage talent will be a welcome addition for a team that has to face Julio Jones, Kelvin Benjamin and Mike Evans twice a year.

While Canadian defensive tackle David Onyemata might not be ready to compete for reps right away, his power and upside are reminiscent of former Saint Akiem Hicks.
