7. New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints have a different look this year. They no longer will be relying on Jimmy Graham to make a ton of plays, having shipped him to the Seattle Seahawks for center Max Unger and a first-round pick. Kenny Still is also gone, dealing him away to the Miami Dolphins. However, expect this offense to roll because of a rebuilt offensive line in front of Drew Brees.
New Orleans had let the line go into disrepair over the last few seasons but general manager Mickey Loomis has fixed the issues. After acquiring Unger to anchor the interior, he drafted Andrus Peat. With Terron Armstead and Jahri Evans also in this group, the Saints should have one of the best lines in the game after struggling for years.
In terms of weapons, Brees still has plenty. After leading the league in passing yardage, Brees is locked and loaded again with receivers Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston, running backs C.J. Spiller and Mark Ingram, and tight end Benjamin Watson. New Orleans will still have the ability to go deep or enjoy long drives, taking defenses apart with head coach Sean Payton calling the shots.
