ESPN Stats & Information is listing 3-4 personnel and cornerback as the biggest draft needs for the New Orleans Saints, and demonstrating why with some numbers.

As the Saints switch from a 4-3 scheme to a 3-4, they might want to add some run-stuffers. Last season, the Saints allowed a league-worst 5.3 yards per carry on runs between the tackles.

The Saints also need to add pass-rush help with defensive ends or outside linebackers. Last season, the Saints recorded a sack once every 21.6 dropbacks, the fourth-worst rate in the NFL.
