New Orleans Saints Top 25 Players of 2013

Ranking the top 25 New Orleans Saints' players heading into the 2013 season. Who will make the list and where will they rank?

New Orleans Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 16

Martez Wilson's experience at a variety of positions and his freakish athleticism should have him playing an integral role the Saints' pass rush.

New Orleans Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 17

Jabari Greer, No 17 on my top 25 Saints' players, has been the Saints best corner since arriving in 2009.

New Orleans Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 18

Zach Strief was a beast in 2011 before injuries caused a decline in play in 2012. Expect Strief to play closer to his 2011 form this upcoming season.

New Orleans Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 19

Joe Morgan's has the speed to fly by defenders, and will effectively stretch the field for the Saints in 2013.

New Orleans Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 20

Brodrick Bunkley doesn't do anything sexy, but he is one of the better run defenders in the league.

Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 21

If Charles Brown can stay healthy I expect him to do a fine job protecting Drew Brees's blind side, just as he did in limited time last year.

Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 22

The Saints' signing of Ben Watson, No. 22 in my top 25 Saints, hasn't received much attention but seems to be a great signing.

Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 23

Due to a recent decline in performance and questions about his fit in the 3-4 defense, Jonathan Vilma earns my No. 23 ranking.

Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 24

My No. 24 for the top 25 Saints in 2013, Patrick Robinson, played well in 2011 but regressed significantly in 2012. Which version will we see in 2013?

Saints' Top 25 Players: No. 25

At No. 25 Isa Abdul-Quddus is a player that may not start, but has proven himself in coverage and deserves a chance over the under-performing veteran safeties.
