Top 10 Best New Orleans Saints Players Going Into the 2021 NFL Season

This is a transition year for the Saints. The Drew Brees era is over, and it leaves a quarterback battle between Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill. This is a talented roster, but it might not be able to compete with the Buccaneers. Here, we are looking at the top ten best New Orleans Saints players going into the 2021 NFL season.
The Top Ten
1 Alvin Kamara

Honestly, it surprises me that Kamara has never rushed for over 1,000 yards in a season. He has made the Pro Bowl every season of his career, and even tied the record for the most rushing touchdowns in a single game with 6. With Drew Brees gone, expect Kamara to receive more touches, whether they are carries or receptions.

2 Ryan Ramczyk

Ramczyk is an excellent right tackle, and it's no wonder that the Saints recently locked him up for the future. Get this man to a Pro Bowl soon. He's already a multi-time All-Pro.

3 Cameron Jordan Cameron Tyler Jordan is an American football defensive end for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League.

Jordan had an average season last season when compared to years past. However, Trey Hendrickson is gone, and it gives him more opportunities to return to form. Not to mention, he will serve as a mentor to defensive end and first-round pick Payton Turner.

4 Michael Thomas

It was a rough season for Thomas in 2020. He missed a lot of time with an injury and was even suspended by the team for a game. Still, the former Offensive Player of the Year can definitely bounce back, even with Winston or Hill at quarterback.

5 Demario Davis

Davis had yet another great season in 2020. The two-time All-Pro bounced around the league for a bit but looks like he finally found his home in roaming the Saints' defense.

6 Terron Armstead

The Saints have one of the best tackle duos in the NFL. Armstead has played well for basically his whole career. Age definitely isn't stopping this top left tackle.

7 Marshon Lattimore

Lattimore is coming into the final year of his contract looking for an extension. Can the Saints afford to pay him, however? He is a great corner but hasn't reached the heights of his 2017 rookie campaign.

I feel like Lattimore needs more help in the secondary. Perhaps the Saints will sign a veteran corner.

8 Marcus Williams

Williams has been getting better and better since his rookie season, and it's no wonder that the Saints placed the franchise tag on him. The question is, can they pay both him and Lattimore? One might have to go.

9 David Onyemata

The Saints will be without Onyemata for a little bit this season, as he was suspended by the league. It's a big blow to the interior of the Saints' defensive line. Onyemata had his best season yet in 2020, which led to them letting Sheldon Rankins leave in free agency. We'll see if Onyemata can live up to the hype after his suspension.

10 Erik McCoy

McCoy has been the Saints' center for the last two seasons and has been doing a great job at it. Maybe he'll reach the Pro Bowl in his third season, as he has been playing at that level since his rookie season.
