2015 Depth Charts: New Orleans Saints
• At wide reciever, Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks are both at roughly the same level now, though their careers are going in opposite directions. Colston looks like he’s on the downside of his career while Cooks was solid with flashes as a rookie.
• Zach Strief remains quietly one of the best offensive tackles in the league. He doesn’t get nearly enough credit but delivers time and time again, providing stability on the right side of the Saints offensive line.
• Cameron Jordan is an interesting player to look at. His 2013 season was very good, but it’s been sandwiched between two less than impressive seasons in 2012 and 2014. Can he get back to that high level again in 2015?
• Kenny Phillips might seem like a strange choice to be unknown, but we simply haven’t seen enough of him recently to know what sort of player he is anymore. On our most recent evidence he can be very good indeed, but how have injuries impacted his career?
Center: How much faith do they have that Tim Lelito can get the job done as a starter? We haven’t seen much of him, with just two starts at center in 2014 and at this point it’s tough to say how good he would be over the course of a full season.
Linebacker: As position where the Saints could upgrade at two spots at least, middle linebacker is the biggest concern, with Curtis Lofton continuing to struggle and just the untested Jerry Franklin behind him.
Cornerback: 2014 was a down year for Keenan Lewis, but he has a difficult job and has shown himself to be a quality corner throughout his career. There are questions beyond him at the position however Stanley Jean-Baptiste young and untested, and Corey White struggling.
