Saints No. 10 in scouting analysis
By Pat Yasinskas
The New Orleans Saints might be the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs, but they’re only rated No. 10 among the 12 teams in the playoffs. That’s according to our friends at Scouts Inc.
They came up with a system in which they rated teams at each position group and added up the numbers. In their system, Minnesota is No. 1 and Indianapolis No. 2. The Saints were ranked above only the Chargers and Bengals.
The Saints graded out pretty well at the offensive skill positions and with their coaching staff. But they didn’t score very well when it came to the offensive and defensive lines, linebackers and secondary. They also were ranked last in special teams.
