New Orleans Saints' Defensive Player Grades: Year in Review

My defensive MVP for the first half of the season, based on having the highest GPA, was Jabari Greer. After 16 games, Jonathan Vilma gets my defensive MVP for the season. He may not have the highest GPA, but I'll take 15 games of 2.98 quality average over 9 games of Greer's 3.37 average, or 12 games of Porter's 3.06 average. Below are the final GPA's for the season, including the number of games graded. Keep in mind, that doesn't mean number of games played, it's just the number of games I graded based on extended action.

Here are the GPA's, highest to lowest:

Jabari Greer: 3.37 (9 games)
