The New Orleans Saints finished the 2013 season second in the NFC South at 11-5. They have a few players who need to breakout to get back to the postseason in 2014. These players have the opportunity and the skills to become solid contributors for Sean Paytons' team.

New Orleans cut ties with veteran cornerback Jabari Greer early in the offseason. White started six games in 2013 posting 41 tackles and one interception for the Saints. He will be competing for a starting position opposite Keenan Lewis in 2014.
Robinson will fill the void left by Darren Sproles who was dealt to Philadelphia. An undrafted free agent in 2013, Robinson ran for 224 yards and one touchdown for New Orleans. He has size (6-foot-0, 220 pounds) to run between the tackles and quickness to get around the edge.
Jenkins will battle starter Brodrick Bunkley for playing time this season. Jenkins, at 6-foot-3 and 359 pounds, is a mammoth player for the Saints and fits the nose tackle mold. He only collected 21 tackles as a rookie and the saints will look for him to produce in '14.
The 5th round pick from Oklahoma became a reliable option for Drew Brees in 2013, compiling 32 catches for 641 yards and five touchdowns. Stills will surely be asked to start opposite Marques Colston with the Saints releasing Lance Moore. Stills has the speed to beat teams deep like he showed last year and averaging 20 YPC shows his big play abilities.
2013 starting left tackle Charles Brown signed with the New York Giants, so the 6-foot-5, 314 pound Armstead will be asked to man the LT spot for New Orleans in 2014. Armstead played well when thrown into action in the playoffs vs. Philadelphia and Seattle. He will need to work on his footwork, but if he progresses the sky is the limit for him.
