TrueDat, But even if we come back with what we had last year at the end of the season, assuming reports are truthful re: Okafor's recovery, it's already a solid group,...

But if Davenport is even "okay" for a first round pick and Hendrickson progresses in his second season - this unit will definitely be a Top 10 Pass Rush, and that's before you make the synergy factor of a more experienced, solid secondary...

And don't forget, Loewen was really showing some good stuff at Strongside Defensive End and DT3, if he can get healthy, wow...

Davenport and Bromley are the keys.

Getting pressure from both sides is the key

Jordan is going to be scary

If and when Okafor is ready to comeback and play at a high level, Saints are WAY better at DE.

JORDAN, DAVENPORT, TREY & OKAFOR ... that's solid.

As it is with all 32 teams.

Apples to apples, this is the best d-line we've had going into a season in a very long time.

It might also be the best OL, WR, LB, CB, S and RB's we've had in years
