[VIDEO] Saints Film Study - DT Sheldon Rankins 2017 Outlook

Continuing our Training Camp series, we take a look at the impact Sheldon Rankins could have for the Saints at the Defensive Tackle position.

Since the New Orleans Saints learned that they would be without Nick Fairley for the 2017 campaign, the question has been can Sheldon Rankins (and others) step up to fill the void. Asking a young player to fill the void left by a productive veteran is always a tall task.

Rankins won’t have to do it alone, as players like David Onyemata and Alex Okafor are also versatile players who can rotate along the defensive front. The highest expectations definitely rest on Rankins’ shoulders.

In this film study, we take a look at a couple of games from the 2016 seasons and how Sheldon has looked during the preseason.
