Ranking the New Orleans Saints' 2016 Roster (Updated Daily)

For the fifth consecutive offseason, we're ranking the New Orleans Saints' top players; this year it'll be their top 20. We'll publish a new player each weekday as we inch closer to training camp.

Seven players from last year's list are no longer with the Saints: No. 9 Marques Colston, No. 10 Jahri Evans, No. 12 Junior Galette, No. 14 Brandon Browner, No. 15 Akiem Hicks, No. 18 Khiry Robinson, No. 20 David Hawthorne. So expect new faces aplenty across the board.

Ranking the New Orleans Saints' 2016 roster: No. 20 Thomas Morstead | NOLA.com

If your punter is the 20th best player on your team, you have a few roster problems.

We could let Drew punt and I don't think it would cost us a single game all season.

Lets hope that doesn't happen because I think you are wrong.

Oh boy...Ellerbe plays in only six games and is our No. 18 best player? Larry, say it isn't so...

Yeah, thats odd JP, however if he could play all 16 games (yeah yeah... If, If, If) he'd probably be in out top 10, easily.

Said the same thing in the other thread, IF Ellerbe could stay healthy, he might be an All-Pro...

Ireland can definitely spot the defensive talent...

But I think they cut ties as early as when training camp breaks if he starts breaking down again...
