The New Orleans Saints have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL, and it shows. The team has a good chance at sending several players to the Pro Bowl in 2014, mostly because Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton have done such a great job building this team. With that said, here are five Saints who could make the Pro Bowl this season.
Signed this offseason after a very successful tenure with the Buffalo Bills, Jairus Byrd will look to make a big impact with his new team. Injury concerns aside, Byrd should be every bit as good in New Orleans as he was in Buffalo, and that likely means a Pro Bowl bid.
Kenny Vaccaro had an excellent rookie season last year before an injury derailed him late in the season, and he has a good chance to improve upon his play from a season ago. Vaccaro is going to be a great safety for a long time in the NFL, and a Pro Bowl is likely in his immediate future.
Over the past few seasons, Cameron Jordan has blossomed into one of the best 3-4 defensive linemen in the league, and his growth should continue into 2014. Jordan can rush the passer, and he can stuff the run. He is the total package at defensive end.
Arguably the best tight end in the league today, Jimmy Graham is a virtual lock to make the Pro Bowl in 2014. Graham is a defensive nightmare, and his ability to blow past coverage is going to allow him to make big plays all season long.
Drew Brees means everything to the Saints, and his production is a big part of why this team is so successful. Brees is a record-setting quarterback who will be in the Pro Bowl this season, barring any unforeseen events.
