2023 NFL Power Rankings: New Orleans Saints
Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.
Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the New Orleans Saints in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.
ESPN -- Rank: 21
The Saints have been looking for a quarterback since Drew Brees retired after the 2020 season, starting four players in 2021 and two in 2022. The Saints went and got their guy when they signed Derek Carr this offseason, and it should be a significant upgrade over the combination of Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston last season.
NFL.com -- Rank: 18
CBS Sports -- Rank: 20
USA Today -- Rank: 17
The Athletic -- Rank: 18
Hype man: Have you seen the other quarterbacks in our division? Bryce Young can't see over the top of the podium, Baker Mayfield is a better commercial actor than football player, and the Falcons have that guy whose name I can't even remember. It's Derek Carr's world and the rest of the division is just living in it.
Derek Downer: The only active coach with a worse career winning percentage than Dennis Allen is Matt Eberflus, and he's only coached one season.
PFF -- Rank: 26
New Orleans then doubled down on defensive line additions by drafting interior defender Bryan Bresee in the first round and edge defender Isaiah Foskey in the second round. Bresee is coming off a season where he posted a career-high 82.0 PFF pass-rushing grade.
While Andy Dalton performed admirably in 2022, bringing in Derek Carr and retaining Michael Thomas, while also adding running back Kendre Miller in the draft, should take the offense to newer heights in 2023.
PFT -- Rank: 24
