After losing a few starters in the salary-cap purge, the Saints are banking on greater contributions from last year's draft class to fill the void.
"If he stays at strongside linebacker, Baun probably won’t see many more snaps than he did last year. When the Saints drafted him, they said they envisioned him as a potential middle linebacker in the future -- and there is an opening"
"The Saints initially considered using Ruiz at center and moving 2019 second-rounder Erik McCoy to right guard instead. But the diminished offseason made that harder to do. And now McCoy has performed so well at center for two straight years that the Saints might just decide to keep Ruiz at right guard permanently."
“I can remember watching him at the Senior Bowl and thinking, ‘There’s some George Kittle to this dude,’” Miller said. “Now, you never want to write that or say that because then people will hear it like, ‘Oh, he’s gonna be George Kittle.’ But ... it’s really easy to fall in love with his game because he’s physical, he’s tough and he’s versatile.’”
the biggest question is where to play Baun, as I thought Davis was the Mike but could he be moving back to the weakside? and Baun plays the Mike position with Eliss as the Sam? and Ruiz is a natural center and I believe that is where they will play him, he looks undersized at guard and McCoy has the build to slide over to guard and Trautman his assessment was spot on to me, he looks like he could be like a George Kittle for the Saints.
