I have the Saints rated third in the early rankings with Houston coming in fourth (Chicago 1st and Jacksonville 2nd).
New Orleans has strength in their defensive line while showing high value vs. the run. Their secondary is loaded with young talent that all came into the league as high draft selections. Their linebackers don’t project well, but they can get the job done. I expect the Saints to be a top defense in 2019 with developing value in sacks, which should lead to turnovers. I will be looking to add New Orleans this year while being a value on draft day.
