Top 10 Best New Orleans Saints Players Going Into the 2021 NFL SeasonThis 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.
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.
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.
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.
Jordan had an average season last season when compared to year's 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.
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.
It was a rough season for Thomas in 2020. He missed a lot of time with 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.
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.
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.
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.
McCoy has been the Saints center 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.
