New Orleans Saints: Defensive Position Breakdown and Depth Chart Analysis
USA TODAY Sports

As the 2014 NFL season approaches, the New Orleans Saints are looking to field a dominant defense, and the unit's depth chart is stacked with capable players. 

In 2012, the Saints fielded the worst defense in the NFL and the worst in league history up to that point. Just a year later, however, first-year defensive coordinator Rob Ryan orchestrated a remarkable turnaround, and New Orleans finished with the league's fourth-ranked defense. 

This coming season, the Saints defense should be even better, as general manager Mickey Loomis has continued to improve the group's personnel. Free-agent additions Jairus Byrd and Champ Bailey, along with draft picks Stanley Jean-Baptiste and Ronald Powell, will contribute to a deeper, more talented unit in 2014.

Following is an early look at New Orleans' defensive depth chart for the coming season.
